FruitaBu

This giveaway is now closed with 155 comments. Thank you to all who entered. Congratulations to the 3 lucky winners ~ Nancy, plowlady, and Misty!

It feels good to eat healthy. It feels even better knowing that I'm giving my children healthy snacks. We tried FruitaBu Rolls. My kids thought they were really good. Sugar is never added to their products, yet they're just the right amout of sweet. A big bonus, they are also fully organic. The people over at FruitaBu believe fruit should be free - free to get smoooshed (the extra "o" stands for organic) into flat-out fun!

Start healthy eating habits at home. Each serving contains 1 full serving of fruit in each Roll. There is also over 90% real fruit juice in their products. No artificial colors, flavors or preservatives are added. FruitaBu Rolls come in apple, grape and strawberry.

FruitaBu is generously offering THREE of my readers three boxes each (one of each flavor) for your family.

  2. It it hard sometimes when my two year old is in his "picky" phase but at least he loves virtually all kinds of fruit and treats fruit strips like they are candy. I try to encourage and lead by example but I don't force. He would love these!

  34. Baby carrots, bananas, apples, pears, grapes, clementines, blueberries and strawberries are always welcome at my house. Skim mozzarella cheese, boiled eggs, 1% organic milk, and yogurt are very popular with the kids, too. I use ground turkey instead of ground beef and we bake / boil potatoes instead of making french fries. As far as cereal goes - Cheerios and corn flakes are eaten daily, with or without milk.
