My kids are absolutely LOVING Kindergarten. Every weeknight when I tuck them in, I tell them to get lots of sleep because they have school in the morning. Their immediate response is YAY!!!!!!!
Let’s just hope that we can keep the positive school vibes going for the whole year.
With a new school, there are new friends, new routines and new experiences. One is lunchtime. At their old school, healthy snacks and a lunch were provided by the school so everyone pretty much had the same thing to eat. Now, there’s everything under the sun. Some kids get hot lunch. Some pack a lunch. Some healthy. Some not so healthy. We pack a lunch everyday. I soon found out that one of their new friends brings fruity snacks (aka fruit snacks in kid talk) every single day.
Of course, that lead to their request of having fruit snacks every single day at school. First off, I rarely buy fruit snacks. If I do, it’s a BIG deal. Secondly, I had to explain that variety is the spice of life. You don’t need to eat fruit snacks every single day.
As luck would have it, the very next day, the UPS driver dropped off a huge box of the new Stonyfield Organic Fruit Snacks.
I know what you are thinking – Stonyfield?!?!? Don’t they make milk and yogurt?
Yes! But now they are venturing out of the dairy aisle. These bite-sized gummy fruit snacks, that are shaped like the most adorable little cows, are made with organic ingredients including real fruit and vegetable juices. They come in two flavors: Mixed Berry and Strawberry.
Of course, I had to do a taste test before my kids got home from school. You know – for quality control purposes and all. They are so good! For a second, I thought about hiding every single one for my own stash. They’d never know! BUT, I’m not that mean.
When the kids got home, they were quite excited to taste the new little cow fruity snacks. The verdict? YUM!
It’s nice to know that there’s an organic fruit snack option out there without anything funky added. I can pronounce every single ingredient on the label. And now my kids’ can hang with their new friend who loves fruit snacks. Maybe I should pack extras so they can share the goodness of Stonfyield with her?
Stonyfield Fruit Snacks are still quite new so you might have some difficulty finding them in your area. You can use the Store Locator to find the nearest available location to you. When they do show up on the shelves, stock up!
