Diets in Review - Find the Right Diet for You

We Love Revolution Foods and Fruitabu

revolution-foods-mashupsToday’s guest blog comes from an in-the-know mom. Naomi Shapiro is the stay-at-home mom who “didn’t expect to be” over at Superdumb Supervillain. She’s got two kiddos to chase after and fill both hers and their diets with foods they’ll eat, enjoy and will be good for them. Today she offers a great product recommendation.

This week, we love putting something in our kiddo’s lunchbox that we can feel good about. And that they’ll actually want to eat… Like fruit. Only, without the annoying tendency to bruise when tossed around in a backpack. Or the need to wash, peel or even slice it.

Mashups by Revolution Foods are organic 100% fruit purees that come in three kid-friendly flavors (grape, berry, tropical fruit) and contain no preservatives or added sugar. Perhaps more importantly- and certainly more fun!- they come in a squeezable pouch that requires no utensils. Hands-free Mashups are resealable, which is convenient for feeding babies on the go. The 90g pouches each contain 60 calories or less, making them a decent snack option for calorie counting parents, too.

fruitabuFor even more portability, try fruit leather. FruitaBü Flats are basically fruit jerky: dried strips of concentrated organic fruit puree that kids can gnaw on. FruitaBü Twirls are essentially the same ingredient-wise as the Flats, but made thinner and stretchier so they’re more fun to play with (Think Fruit Roll-Ups without all the artificial sugars and dyes.) Not that you would ever encourage your kids to play with their food. I keep these in my purse to use as bribes. Shhh!

Yum. I remember thinking that all those fruit snacks were so healthy and then reading ingredients. Not.
These look great and sound yummy. Thanks for the review!

Yummy! They sound great, and I wonder if you can freeze them in the summer for popsicle-type treats.
