Finding healthy snack ideas for my kids is often a struggle.
In today’s world of consumerism where we are presented with numerous choices in everything, it could be real tough to make informed decisions in regards to this.
I want my children to have healthy and at the same time, tasty snacks and drinks but the grocery store trips I take in search for this from time to time brought disappointment. I know my children would whole heartedly consume anything, as long as it is sweet! Yup!
But as Mothers, we all know that being sweet just would not do. We want to provide them with food and snack items that are best, fresh, healthy, and if possible organic.
Is it too much to ask?
Nope! definitely not!
For this reason, I was delighted when an organic baby food brand based in Calgary, Canada approached me to work with them. Baby Gourmet, the Company, wanted me to test their product Squoosh ,an organic snack that delivers one full serving of fruit and vegetables in every pouch. I was hooked and wanted to see if Squoosh could make good on its promises. It was also perfect for my kids to try as it appealed well to toddlers and school aged children.
A bit more about Squoosh…
It is a pureed snack made of 100% organic fruits and vegetables, good for a full serving of fruits and vegetables in every 3.2 oz pouch. The Squoosh product line contains no added sugars, salts, and is gluten-free, GMO-free, nut-free, housed in BPA-free packaging and is available in the following four flavours:
• BeetBerry – banana, apple, beet, blueberry
• OrangoBango – mango, carrot, banana, apple
• SquabbleBerry – apple, blueberry, squash, banana
• Banango – banana, mango, apple, squash
Two twelve packs of Squoosh products arrived within few weeks at my house. One was the Orangobango flavor and the other was the Squabbleberry flavor.
The Orangebango has a summer time (nostalgic here :) ) flavor of Mango and is blended with the nourishing goodness of carrot, banana and apple. Kevin, my son loved this one a lot.
The Squabbleberry on the other hand is made from sweet and delicious apple, blueberries, and banana topped up with tasty butternut squash. Krista, my little girl favored this drink.
