fruit cups and Fruit Burst Squeezers saved my sanity.
If you have a child that eats non stop….like seriously NON.STOP. The kind that isn’t quite 2 years old and yet knows how to get the cheese out of the fridge and a knife out of the knife block to cut the cheese…non stop eater. You know what I’m talking about.
Prince L is that kind of eater. If I’m not playing trains with him – and let’s face it, there’s not much variety to saying chugachugachoochoo – then I can almost guarantee he’s in the kitchen trying to find something to eat.
I love giving him fresh fruit, and he’ll eat carrots too, but he will not wait for me to prep food. If it takes longer than me picking it up and handing it to him there is usually screams, tears, or self preservation by getting whatever he wants out of the fridge…like maple syrup (don’t ask).
So to save my sanity, and his sanity and growing little body, I try to have quick snacks on hand. Unfortunately there isn’t much out there that is quick and also healthy. But Del Monte has us covered.
Now when Prince L is in his eating mood, I can quickly grab one of the squeezers from the cupboard or fridge if we decide to make them cold, and away he goes. He loves taking the lid with him too, and twisting it back on when he’s not currently eating the goodness.
I still feel like he’s getting great nutrition but we get to avoid the meltdowns and little boy knife antics (yes I should probably put the blog up even higher). We are becoming much more conscious of what’s in our food, especially packaged products like Del Monte. When I read through the ingredients though, I know we’re good.
Just check out what’s in the Peach-Mango Fruit Burst Fruit+Veggie Squeezer:
- Peach-Mango: Pear puree concentrate, water, pumpkin juice concentrate, peach puree concentrate, pear juice concentrate, carrot juice concentrate, carrot puree, mango puree concentrate, natural flavors, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), citric acid.
We use the fruit cups in Princess V’s lunchbox. Since they are sealed I don’t have to worry about leaking fruit in a tupperware. Have you ever had to clean applesauce out of a lunchbox, or strawberry juice? Not.Fun.
Since she is my picky eater, and rarely eats anything, I know the Del Monte is providing her a healthy side to her lunch that she also enjoys. Saving my sanity on both her health and from sticky messes.
