Again, I have to praise Trader Joe’s for another affordable snack that kids love. Whenever Kenya sees a bag of these fruit bars sitting out, he looks at me at say “Mo!” (translation: more). They’re made from a mix of fruit pulp such as apples, boysenberry, blackberry, nectarine, cherry, passion fruit and more so there sweet, but also a bit tangy. They’re also totally unsweetened with no added sugar. Another good thing is they don’t make a mess, so they’re a good travel snack on the days that you don’t feel like dragging around fruit slices in a ziplock that end up getting stinky after a few hours. This is a perfect choice no matter if your child is vegetarian, eating a gluten free diet or you’re just just looking to give them something easy and delicious.

  1. I love these snacks! My son still loves them at age three. He also likes the freeze dried fruit in the related recipes at the bottom of the post. We started out buying those baby puff things, but quickly switched to these TJ’s snacks, and we haven’t looked back!

  2. I looked for this at my local TJ’s this weekend in San Francisco and could not find it – the store was a zoo so I did not ask any staff…where do they tend to stock it? I looked and found the freeze-dried rambutan and other flavors you had profiled previously…

    Thanks for a great site!
