BUDDY FRUITS - Eating Fruits Made Easy! (Review)

I was sent a sampling of Buddy Fruits product line, which includes fruit bites, blended fruit and milk smoothie pouches and pure blended fruit pouches to try with Savannah and Arabella.  Savannah ended up having the pure fruit bites and fruit and milk smoothies, while Arabella enjoy the selection of pure blended fruit pouches.

Buddy Fruits pure fruit bites come in the following flavors -- pomegranate and acai, orange, apple, and raspberry.  Even though Savannah liked each one, I could tell her enjoyed the pomegranate and acai and apple pouches the best, as these were the ones she asked for more of.

As a mom, I loved serving her one of these fruit snack pouches, as one Buddy Fruits pouch is equal to one portion of fruit.  And, at only 95 calories, no artificial flavors, dairy preservatives or colors, I don't have to worry about what I am serving her.

Buddy Fruits Blended Fruit and Milk smoothies are made with 100% pure fruits and skim milk.  And, at only 70 calories, this pouch is great to give as a daily snack. I found that Savannah enjoyed these pouches most as a mid-morning snack. Again, one pouch of this fruit smoothie is equivalent to one serving of fruit.  On a few occasions, I even squeezed these smoothie pouches into a bowl and let Savannah dip freshly cut fruit into it.  But, as an on-the-go snack, this was great, and could be served chilled or warm.

I loved getting Arabella in on the taste testing. Buddy Fruits Pure Blended Fruit pouches come in the following flavors: Banana, apple cinnamon, strawberry, multi-fruit (which includes Apple, banana, passion fruit juice, mango, strawberry, concentrated apple juice) and mango passion and banana.  Out of all the flavors Arabella tried, she enjoyed the banana, strawberry and apple cinnamon pouches best.  My husband ended up sneaking a multi-fruit pouch as a snack for work, and came home raving about how great it tasted.  He doesn't like sweet snacks, and said that this fruit tasted natural and wasn't sweet or sugary tasting.  And, when he read that each pouch equals one daily fruit serving, he was happy, as he knows as an adult, he doesn't consume enough fruits daily.

After having my family samples the product offering from Buddy Fruits, I can say that we have found a new healthy snack alternative, which is great for both children and adults.  And, for busy families on the go, these pouches are great to grab and go.
