I have decided to start a taste test post with the help of my picky eaters. I may buy or just make a new recipe and serve it up to the kids!
I have spoke before of their pickiness and lack of healthy choices. I have tried several ways to get a veggie in them and the only way to do it is to blend it and hide it and then that doesn't always work either.
I have had them help me in the kitchen and that doesn't help either. Smoothies work sometimes and bean brownies work a little too but, I would love to get them to eat healthier more regularly.
This week I tried a snack. A healthy snack. I picked this bag up at The Dollar Tree so I'm only out a buck it is not a good option.
These apple slices by the brand So Natural are freeze dried. They are all natural, contain no preservatives and are gluten free.
Check out the stats on the back if your one of those people!
1 bag is 0.71 oz. I did split it between both kids to gauge how they liked it and to not disrupt dinner appetites.
Both kids liked it and I think could have eaten their own bag. Yeah!
The apple slices have a crunch like an apple but, just lack the juice. They taste like an apple which both kids like so that was also helpful. I know my daughter liked it and I think my son liked it but maybe only because it was his only snack alternative.
I think this is a great snack alternative. It's healthy. It's apples which are healthy and nutritious. A dollar is great plus too. I would have liked a zip lock bag but that's the only thing I would say is lacking.
I will consider picking these up now on a road trip or snacks for the beach!
Do you have a favorite healthy snack that your kids really like? I would love to hear about it!
