Keeping my daughter’s taste buds happy can be challenging at times. We have been trying to be more organic and make healthier choices in our home which means less lucky charms and more fruits/veggies. Although I did get blessed with her because she usually prefers garden goods over sugary snacks, but she does get sick of eating the same things over and over.
When I found out about Bolthouse Farms Kids™ I knew she was going to be excited as much as I was to try them out. So I called my neighbor and had her come over to try them out too!
Bolthouse Farms Snacks sent us 3 snacks to test out. I can tell you first hand they are not only kid friendly, they are kid approved!
When we first got our package in the mail my daughter went straight for the smoothies. I had to stop her from going for the second one right away…it was THAT good. Her words.
I love how they are just the perfect size for the her growing hands and have 1 1/2 servings of fruit per 6oz container…and best of all..NO DAIRY! Sorry dairy farmers, but this is great news for kids who cant have diary!
Next up we have these wonderful fruit tubes! I am impressed to say the least. These are REAL fruit puree with NO sugar added. We tried the mango meets banana pineapple and oh my yum was it delish. I put a few in the freezer for an after school snack and I am thinking that I can throw frozen ones in her lunch box for a special treat!
They were so delicious that the girls couldn’t even stop eating them to look up at me for a photo haha!
Last but certainly not least the veggie snackers. I am really proud of the ingenious packaging methods for these snackers. My baby girl loves ranch with her carrots, well really every veggie and sometimes even her fruit if the mood hits. Kids and their eating methods, right!?
There is a tiny pouch of ranch powder that you break open and then you can shake it all over the carrots. They were a HUGE hit with the kiddos and us moms!
After they shook it they had to check it out…
Then they had to discuss some girl things…
Then they chowed down!
Yep, rocked their tiny tastebuds! If you are not a lover of ranch, or you want something to really rock your grown up tastebuds..then try the chili lime flavor packs!
Now for some really fun facts…
1. You can find all of these snacks in Giant Eagle’s refrigerated section in the Pittsburgh area.
2. It’s the perfect snack solution to get kids to eat healthy snacks.
3. These snacks contain no added preservatives, no high fructose corn syrup, and no artificial flavors!
