With all the Halloween candy and treats on the way and our recent trip to the dentist that revealed a cavity on one of the kid’s teeth, I have been looking for healthy alternatives for the kid’s snacks and lunches. Now, healthy snacks do not have to be boring. My kids are foodies just like I am and love for food to be fun. So imagine their excitement when they heard about Del Monte fruit cup flavors! We went to Walmart in search of them.
Then again Diced Pears with Vanilla & Spice sounded good too. In the end we brought home two packages each of Diced Apples & Pears with Caramel Flavor and Diced Pears with Vanilla & Spice. For my entire shopping story visit my Google+ album.
Everyone was “starving” when we got home. You know what that means right? They wanted to try those fruit cups right away. Daddy was working late that night so I put together a quick meal of bagels with cream cheese and of course Del Monte’s fruit cups.
These were a hit! When I told the kids they were getting the fruit cups in their school lunches instead of sweet treats they were totally cool with that! I think our favorite of the two is the Vanilla & Spice flavor. It reminds me of apple pie–yum!
These healthy snacks are only 60 calories per serving, gluten free, and do not include high fructose corn syrup.
