Another school year is off to a busy start and that means I’m diving into another year of packing lunches! I’m lucky that my boys aren’t too picky when it comes to lunchtime meals but, like most kids, they do prefer sweet, pre-packaged, not-very-healthy snacks.
That’s why I’m happy that I added Organic Slammers fruit pouches to my lunch routine this year. These delicious snacks contain both fruit and vegetables for a wholesome addition to the lunchbox that’s also kid-friendly! I received Chill’N Slammers and Awesome Slammers to test out recently and my boys couldn’t have been happier to see the pouches in their lunch boxes.
Slammers contain a mix of fruit, vegetables and other wholesome ingredients that help kids power through a busy school day. Chill’N contains bananas, blueberries, butternut squash, Greek yogurt and yumberries. The Awesome variety contains bananas, blueberries, strawberries, beets, acai and amaranth.
Personally, what I love most about Organic Slammers fruit pouches is the fact that they contain 10%-20% of the recommended daily intake of iron. Getting enough iron is something that’s so important to overall health, but it can also be challenging for some kids, especially ones that aren’t crazy about meat. These delicious pouches are a perfect solution!
But what my boys love about their Slammers snacks is that they’re fun, convenient and delicious! Benjamin tells me that he saves his Slammer for dessert every lunch hour. After eating his sandwich, he takes the pouch out to the playground and eats it while playing with his friends so he doesn’t miss out on any of his playtime!
