KID-APPROVED Organic Fruit Snacks

School started and then suddenly we were thrust into the world of schedules, missed naps, and cranky(albeit tired & hungry) kids.  The vast majority of food our family consumes is cooked in our kitchen.  Food allergies find a way of prioritizing what is most important.  Safe, healthy options are rare to find-especially healthy ones!

Today I am sharing ALL about our new find that just so happens to be Gluten-Free & Organic!  Talk about a Mom Win!

KID-APPROVED Organic Fruit Snacks

Stonyfield launched their new line of organic snacks and BOOM our kids are hooked!  I love that they are a healthy alternative and I can throw a box in the car for when people are about to get HAN-GRY.

You don’t want to see them when they’re angry.

Emma Marie will be the first one to tell you all about her new Cow Fruit Snacks!  She will tell you how cute they are and how they taste delicious… but as a parent I want to sing other praises.

Sure they are delicious. MUCH better than the ones we grew up with.

AND who doesn’t think they aren’t cute?!?

Now when I don’t clearly have my head on my shoulders and swim lessons went later than expected I can rest assured that my two kids can munch on a healthy fruit snack before we make our way back home to a slow-cooker meal.

Slow-cookers are your friend.  Repeat that.  Make it your mantra.

Stonyfield Organic Fruit Snacks

I love to continue to find great options with a brand that I’ve trusted with both of my kids for the past four years.  Companies will continue to better the products you purchase IF(and only IF) you demand that said quality.  Our food options throughout the country need to improve drastically.  I am glad that this battle for winning the HANGRY in my family will never again be put to test.
