Just like every other mom in America today, I am always looking for different ways to encourage my children to make healthy food & drink choices. When I had an opportunity to have my kids try & review a healthy snack option such as the Del Monte FruitBurst Squeezers, I was excited for their arrival. Del Monte FruitBurst Squeezers is real fruit fun on the go. It is a combination of natural fruit purees & juices all wrapped up in a cute little package with a really funky top. Each pouch delivers 1 1/2 servings of real fruit (1/2 cup; concentrated equivalent to 3/4 cup fruit per USDA Equivalency Database), contains no artificial flavors, and none of that dirty little word of the century, high fructose corn syrup. It is even packaged in a BPA free pouch, all while being an excellent source of Vitamin C & potassium.
My daughter liked the product right off the bat. The boys, on the other hand, not so much. When I asked what they didn’t like about the snack, they both said the consistency. It was a little too thick to be a drink, but perfect for mixing into yogurt or a smoothie. Even though I think that this snack would be great for sports, I am left wondering if the snack would be better served frozen. The only problem with freezing is dispensing unless you left it out for a bit to make it a slushy consistency.
The Fruit Burst Squeezers are available in two varieties:
- Simply Fruit (Strawberry, Mixed Berry and Apple Cinnamon)
- Fruit + Veggie (Peach-Mango and Blueberry)
