Peeled Snacks Review/Giveaway

Peeled Snacks is a company that sells dried fruit snacks. They make sure that their products are the best possible quality, are organic, are healthy for you, and have no added sugars! These snacks come in many different flavors like apple, pineapple and cherry to name a few! I recently had the opportunity to sample these snacks for myself and I have to say, I LOVE them! They are very fresh and I can feel great when I am eating them, knowing that I am putting something good-for-me in my body and they taste great! I also shared these with my son who is a year old and he loved them too! I was shocked, as he can be a pretty picky eater at times. He scarfed down the Banan-a-peel snacks so fast which was great because I had had a difficult time getting him to eat his fruits or veggies at supper! And the best part? He thought it was dessert! I also had my little sister try them too and she LOVED them as well! She told me that her favorite was the Cherry-go-round kind. My personal favorites were the Apricot-a-lot and Apple-2-the-core selections. I also tried pine-4-Pineapple which was just as amazing and much-ado-about-Mango which was honestly not my favorite, but mango is more of an acquired taste. I could eat these all day long! As for the texture, they are chewy so they taste more like fruit snacks and are fun for kids to eat! The single-serve containers are great for on-the-go or in kids' lunches. There are so many amazing varieties, I can't make up my mind which I want to eat right now! I am so happy that I found a snack that my son and I both love that is both healthy and high-quality! Go check out the Peeled Snacks website and visit them on Facebook and Twitter! Peeled Snacks are also available at your local Starbucks Coffee in both the U.S. and Canada so make sure you stop there and try one for yourself!
P.S. I guess I'm having the Banan-a-peel right now because my son just grabbed the pack, brought it to me and signed "please" haha.

Stonyfield YoBaby and YoKids Yogurt

A while back I had the opportunity to sample Stonyfield YoBaby and YoToddler yogurt with a few friends and family. My son was the highest critic as they are geared towards his age group, but myself and a few others of all ages tried it as well. I found the texture to be good for both, but I was not TOO fond of the taste. The YoBaby seemed to me a little bit acidic and the YoToddler a little bland. My son, on the other hand, LOVES the YoBaby yogurt (and really, the fact that he loves it is all that matters because it is for him haha) but the YoToddler I had a hard time getting him to eat. Perhaps it was the YoToddler flavor choices he didn't like, because they are more than one basic food item.
My sister and her friends (ages 7-13) tried these as well, and contrary to what was expected, they all loved both the YoBaby and YoToddler yogurts! My sister is VERY firm on the fact that she does not like yogurt at all, but it seemed like she just couldn't get enough of the YoBaby and YoToddler yogurts! Perhaps the reason I did not like them was that I have never been too fond of yogurt, but the fact that my sister even liked them speaks volumes to me! I am always searching for healthy foods to feed my picky son and I know my mom is always on the lookout for healthy foods my sister will eat, so this was a gem of a find! Now, Stonyfield YoBaby and YoToddler yogurt is rather costly, but it is organic and packed full of nutrition and is something my son enjoys to eat, so this is one of those things I don't mind spending a little bit extra on occasionally so that I know I am feeding my son something that will help him to grow big and strong.
YoBaby and YoToddler is available in most any grocery store and mass retailer that includes a grocery section. Stonyfield also has a YoKids option for bigger kids who want more exciting flavors. Another thing I love about this yogurt is the container; they double for the most adorable planters (see post here)!

If you have tried any of the Stonyfield Baby-Kids products, I would love to hear your review, so please feel free to post it in the comments!
