Peter Rabbit Review

We eat a lot of junk food in this house. Shh...don't tell! It's really not all that bad, but my little one (and hubby) both have a huge sweet tooth. With the little one, I've been offering fruit as an alternative to other sweets. And, surprisingly, he has welcomed trying new ones.

That's why we were excited when we had the opportunity to try Peter Rabbit Organics 100% Pure Fruit Snack pouches. Peter Rabbit Organics offer a variety of products, from juices to pasta to cookies, among others. Their goal is to provide parents with healthy, organic children's food with no added salt or sugar.

All of their products are organic, salt free, sugar free, and lack anything artificial. The fruit snack pouches we tried contain a full serving of fruit in each pouch and come in three flavors: Apple and Grape, Strawberry and Banana, and Mango, Banana and Orange. The pouches are easy to open and easy to take on the go. Simply drop them in a diaper bag, lunch box, or purse and you're good to go. You can eat straight from the pouch.

It took a minute for my 4 year old to process what he was eating, because it's thick like applesauce, but he was drinking it like a smoothie. But after that initial moment of being unsure, he really enjoyed it. Our favorite flavor is the Mango, Banana and Orange. Yum!
These will make great snacks when we're out and about or a yummy breakfast in the car. For those moments when we're rushing out the door and someone's yelling that they are so hungry, we'll be able to grab a fruit snack pouch, and I will know just how good of a snack it really is.

If you think your kids will love it too, you can check out where to buy them over at Peter Rabbit Organics.

Oh Oh OH! I am really into reducing the sugar intake my kids have! I'll have to keep my eye out for it.
