Del Monte Fruit Burst Squeezers

Let me tell you about a typical day for our little family. We wake up and someone will always complain about breakfast. Always. We get ready for school, I drop the big boys off and then Nash and I head home for a day filled with errands and chores, play time and some basic preschool time, whatever else that we have to do and hopefully a nap thrown somewhere in there, too.

We pick the boys up at 2:45 and then the real fun starts. Between soccer, flag football, tackle football, activity day for church, and chess team - we're hopping all over town. except for Thursdays. Thursdays are usually quite and oh so appreciated!

Throughout all these different activities I have at least 1 hungry kid. (read: whiny, bored, and/or complaining like the dickens.) On these crazy days I usually have dinner waiting in a crock pot, but that could be hours away - so, we stock up on snacks. And my poor van. Well, you can imagine with 4 boys what the inside looks like. (but, it makes for a great weekend chore for the littles so...I win.)

And snacking. Ugh. I really kind of hate it. The things I want my kids to snack on and the things they want to snack just don't allow us to see eye to eye.  Enter Del Monte. Del Monte sent us a gift pack containing their new product, Fruit Burst Squeezers, to try out.

These fun and convenient little squeeze packs contain 1 1/2 servings of fruit puree or a fruit/veggie combo puree. No artificial flavors and no high fructose corn syrup. Made right here in the U.S. and is an excellent source of vitamin A and C. They are available at your local Walmart, in packs of four, for under $3.00.

That's the technical stuff - here's the inside scoop; the stuff that moms really want to know:

It's pretty good and healthy. Fruitburst Squeezers are a blended purée of real fruit and real veggies. Flavors include mango-peach, blueberry, strawberry, apple-cinnamon, and mixed berry. Our family's most liked flavors ended up being apple-cinnamon and strawberry. The blueberry was a little on the sour side. And bonus: they are even better when refrigerated. 

Super convenient: great to throw in your purse, diaper bag, lunch box or take along on the way to practice, school, ect. I packed one along on my recent doctor's appointment for Nash - even though he is only 2, he was able to eat it completely on his own without help from me. (which...was great. It may have spared me from an awkward moment - I was almost completely naked under the office gown. Ahem.)

And finally, the packaging. What is it about squeezable food that kids love?! My boys think it is super fun. Best marketing packaging ever. 

May I suggest that you try new Del Monte Fruit Burst Squeezers? Of course I can - it's my blog. Next time you are at Walmart, pick up a pack. Your kiddos (or you- grown ups love them, too) will be glad you did.
