Kids love to squeeze the all-natural fruit purees right into their

like carrots and beets into their snacktime, too.

My kids are freaks for z-bars by cliff bars. They ask for them at least twice a day.
I really like the Peter Rabbit Organics pouches. I’m also biased as my kid is their profile pic at the moment. Hahha- but seriously, out of the several different pouch brands, my 10month old twins like those the best. Go figure.
Why are you recommending so many fruit leathers and gummies? Those are the WORST for teeth! Even if they are organic.
Also dried fruit. Very sticky, high in sugar. Not great for teeth. 🙁
Have to agree with Jennypants, the dried fruit, fruit leather and gummies leave sticky residue and sugars between teeth and cause cavities. Our ped dentist advises against them.
I agree those fruit leathers are full of sugar!! I started sending a squeeze pack of almond butter to school with my kids and they LOVE it!! It is called Barney Butter and only has 90 calories. It is peanut free, healthy and very little sugar.
