Stretch Island Fruit Snacks are a great option for families on the go

I’m always on the lookout for healthy snacks that my kids will enjoy and are easy to take on the go.  Portability is always something that I have to think about when it comes to snacks for the lunch box, so I always make sure that I have a good supply of fruit, nuts, and string cheese.   These items are always readily available but sometimes the kids want something a little different; so imagine my delight when I heard about Stretch Island.  Stretch Island Fruit Snacks are a great addition to your kids lunch bag because they have 0g of added sugar.  All of the sugar in Stretch Island fruit snacks comes naturally from fruit puree concentrates and fruit juice concentrates.   Be sure to check out the nutrition panel for calorie and total sugar content.  Made only with the best ingredients: 100% fruit ingredients and always Non-GMO Project Verified, vegan and gluten free. Plus, Stretch Island Products are USDA Organic.  They come in three different options:  Fruit Leathers, Fruit Strips, and Fruit Bites.  

We recently received some samples and my kids loved them including the baby.  She loved them so much that she wanted her own package. My son said that he wants them every day for snack time and my daughter wanted to take some to school to share with her friends.   Apparently, Stretch Island Fruit Snacks have been around for over 40 years, and I missed that boat.  But now that I know about them, we will be buying more to use as snacks and behavioral incentives.

I love the fact that they are in their own individual packages so they are easy to grab and go.  We took some to a Christmas Parade recently because I knew that the kids would get hungry and I didn’t really want them eating the junk that is thrown out along the parade route.    They worked out great to hold them over until dinnertime.  And, don’t forget you can also bring your Stretch Island Fruit Snacks with you on the go while doing your holiday shopping!   They’re great for mommy’s too.   You can find Stretch Island Fruit Snacks at retailers such as Walmart, Publix, Whole Foods and CVS.
