Sharing Time


I'm always excited when I find an easy, convenient food that is healthy and natural. I have always loved Stretch Island Fruit Leathers (all natural, 45 calories, equal to 1/2 serving fruit), but I have finally found something to top them and they taste even better. And, I found them at Costco. With 130 calories per serving, they are the equivalent of 2 servings of fruit and 1/2 servings of vegetables. My son is eating vegetables after 2 1/2 years!

*In case you can't see the image, it's Sun Rype Fruit Source Mini Bites with Veggies.

So, are they like fruit snacks? I'll have to try them. My kids were just complaining we have nothing to eat and I told them I'd be happy to buy them anything that has some nutritional value, they came up with like 1 thing, so I always love great ideas like this!

I'll have to give them a try. I love the Stretch Island Fruit Leathers - so if they top those, i am sure I will love them too.

yes, they're fruit snacks, little bite-size thingies. Oliver doesn't know the difference and he looovveess them. They are $8.99 though so I have to ration them.
