While we typically have fresh fruit and veggies in our meals at home, sometimes having fresh produce it is not quite as easy when you're on the run. Del Monte's Fruit Burst Squeezers are the perfect substitute for fresh fruit and veggies because all you have to do is throw it in a lunchbox without having to worry about keeping it cold.
We received for review Fruit Burst Squeezers from Del Monte, Inc., and since my children are the connoisseurs of the "fruit pack" as we so lovingly call them, we might really be the best family to review these things! If you didn't already know, fruit packs are pureed fruit and vegetables in a super convenient pack. Believe it or not, purees are no longer just for infants! They are an easy way for your children (or yourself!) to get in a serving (or two!) of fruit and veggies. And with the variety Del Monte has to chose from, there is sure to be the perfect flavor for your family.
We have tried all different brands of fruit packs, but the Del Monte Fruit Burst Squeezers are definitely among my kid's favorites. When I do demonstrations in preschools on how to create healthy and fun lunches, I tend to focus on COLOR COLOR COLOR. Of course, I focus on the healthy stuff too, but I really push the fact that kids tend to try more food when it's colorful. I really think that my own kids not only liked the taste of Del Monte's Fruit Burst Squeezers, but they were also drawn to the packaging! Neither one of my children know how to read, so it's fun for them to open up their healthy snack drawer in our pantry and actually SEE the pictures of the fruit on Del Monte's packaging. It helps them to chose whether or not they want the blueberry or the peach-mango flavor. They may not know how to read, but they definitely know their fruit. And Peach-Mango? Yep! PEACH-MANGO! It's delicious too.
Tune in tomorrow for a breakfast idea using Del Monte's Fruit Burst Squeezers. Yes, really! A breakfast idea!
