Grace loves fruit. She really loves fruit. If she's eating a cookie and I put some pear slices on her tray, she quickly drops the cookie and gobbles up the fruit.
Fresh fruit isn't always convenient. It can be messy, sticky or just a hassle to dice up when we're away from home. Plus, some fresh fruit (like bananas) just spoils quicker than we can finish it.
Brothers-ALL-Natural Fruit Crisps at our local Costco. Grace quickly finished the 2 little sample cups of the freeze dried fruit that the nice lady handed to her, so we purchased a box of 3 assorted flavors.
Soon after, I was in contact with a representative from the company about doing a product review. They very nicely provided me with samples of the many other flavors (7 in all) that they offer:
- Asian Pear
- Fugi Apple
In addition to the other 7 flavors that were sent to me, I also received 5 of the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse packages:
- Mickey Mouse Apple
- Donald Duck Pear
- Mickey's Clubhouse Pineapple
- Goofy Strawberry-Banana
- Pluto Peach
Each package of Brothers-ALL-Natural Fruit Crisps contains 100% all natural fruit slices equal to 2 servings of fruit. That's it. Nothing else. No Preservatives. No added sugar. No fat. No HFCS. So, I have no problems with giving these to Grace every day. She gobbles them up as if they are candy and they are nothing but fruit! With the same nutrition as fresh fruit! Gotta love that!
Also, unlike fresh fruit, they have a 1 year shelf life! Grace eats 1/2 of a fresh banana just about every day, I like to keep the banana flavored ones to give her when we are out of fresh bananas and don't want to run to the store just for one thing.
Here are some of the other ways we use our Fruit Crisps:
- Snack time at home for Grace. Something sweet without added sugar.
- I keep a package in the diaper bag for easy, on-the-go snacking.
- Joe keeps a few packages in the truck for those days he doesn't get a chance to stop to eat while at work.
- I like to add some dried apples to my morning oatmeal.
- Also, Fruit Crisps would be a wonderful, healthy snack to add to your school-aged child's lunch box.
