What do you give your kids for snacks? What kinds of snacks do you take with you when traveling? Are you looking for a healthy snack that kids will love? Is your family getting the recommended 5 servings of fruit a day?
I always want to provide the best in nutrition for my kids while also giving them snacks they enjoy. Last month, I learned about Peeled Snacks and now it is all my kids reach for!
What are Peeled Snacks?
Peeled Snacks offers nutritious, organic, all natural snacks in convenient packages for home or on the go snacking. All Peeled Snacks contain NO added sugar, No oil, No artificial sweeteners, no gluten, no wheat. Peeled Snacks offer you real, gently dried, unprocessed fruits and nuts.
Do you eat 5 servings of fruits & vegetables per day?
You probably are not getting the recommended 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), less than 1/3 adults eat fruit even twice a day. Nothing is added to Peeled Snacks. Eating Peeled Snacks makes getting your fruit servings every day a cinch, and a tasty option as well. Peeled Snacks give you all the benefits of fresh fruit, vitamins, minerals, and fiber
How do Peeled Snacks Taste?
I have tried other dried fruit snacks and never have liked them because of the sugar coatings. There is no sugar added to Peeled Snacks, so I worried that I wouldn’t like them either. I was so wrong. My entire family likes Peeled Snacks. I am so, so, so happy to find a healthy snack alternative that is NOT loaded with high fructose corn syrup, sugar, and salt.
Elizabeth is shown above enjoying the Peeled Organics Banan-a-peel dried bananas. How do they taste? Like bananas! That’s all it is! Pure and simple, just fruit. I like that we now reach for healthy snacks that are delicious and nutritious.
Peeled Snacks generously loaded us up with their Banan-a-peel, Apple-2-the-core, Apricot-a-lot, Raisin expectations, and much-ado-about-Mango as well as their Fruit Mixes: farmer’s market trio (organic apple, cherry, and raisin), goFigure (organic apricot, fig, and date), and paradise found (organic mango, pineapple, and banana). We have and are continuing to enjoy them all, but we have our favorites.
Our favorites: Cindy: Farmer’s Market Trio. Matt: Raisin Expectations. Elijah: Apple-w-the-core. Elizabeth: Banan-a-peel.
Healthy Snacks while Traveling
Eating healthy while traveling can be a challenge. Transporting and storing fresh fruit can be difficult, if not impossible. I like the convenience that Peeled Snacks gives moms that want to provide healthy snacks while traveling. The stand-up, resealable bag is just the perfect size for the family to share as a snack.
Last week, we went to the Akron Zoo. I packed the Apple-2-the-core snacks for my kids. They thought it was a nice treat, it curbed their hunger, and I was happy we didn’t have to buy the expensive and often unhealthy snacks you get when traveling. The Akron Zoo does a good job at providing healthy options like fresh fruit. However, eating the dried fruit made my kids think they are getting something special and they are more likely to enjoy it as a “snack” while traveling than fresh fruit. I love that they are still getting all the nutrition too.
If you are looking for a healthy snack for your family that is all natural, organic, and sourced from the USA whenever possible, Peeled Snacks are for you. They are great to have on hand at home for snacks, in the car for snacking, in your purse or diaper bag when out and about with your kids, and especially when traveling.
