My kids would eat fruits and veggies all day if I let them, but the problem lies in how they prefer their foods be prepared. While my daughter makes it easy on me as she likes them whole so the only preparation required is a good washing, my son’s dental problems require that any non-squishy foods be either pureed or chopped in tiny pieces. This isn’t a problem when I have time to cut and prepare special meals for him, but sometimes I need something that doesn’t require cutting boards and cooking.
With snow days, mid-winter break, and holidays causing havoc on our daily schedules, I’ve been very glad that I have a stash of Del Monte to help me as our schedules have been turned upside down. So, whether we are at the park, at an event, or off enjoying our time off from school, I can pull out healthy treats even when we’re on the go that the kids will devour.
My kids especially love the Del Monte Fruit Burst Squeezers and do a little happy dance whenever I offer one to them. And, with 1 ½ servings of fruit or fruit and veggies and an excellent source of vitamins A and C with no artificial flavors or high fructose corn syrup, I can do a happy dance knowing they are getting fruits and veggies without having to spend a ton of time preparing our snack.
