 I am grateful that my toddler LOVES fruit and of course I love all the health benefits associated with all types of fruit.  BUT………I don’t eat as much fruit as I should (confession).  So I was really interested in learning more about Today’s Farm Freeze-Dried Fruit Snacks.

My Review:

justus foods logoMy only experience with freeze-dried fruits was when my little one had started eating solid foods (some of those baby snacks were freeze-dried). This time, the whole familywas able to enjoy them. My little one loved the peach, my husband loved the apple-cinnamon, and I preferred the strawberry. The pineapple had a little different texture, so was a bit more difficult for my 22 month old to eat.

Convenience is what comes to mind first. The packages are the size of potato chip bags and so easy to fit into my husband’s lunch, diaper bag, or your child’s lunch. Nutrition without the mess or spoilage. As a parent, I am sold. These are 100% fruit (nothing added). You look at “Ingredients” on the bag and all it says is “Freeze Dried Strawberries”. That is reassuring. No preservatives, no artificial colors……..just FRUIT.
