Finding healthy snacks for kids these days can really be a challenge, especially
in the Elmo and Hannah Montana universe of marketed, processed food products that seem to be overtaking supermarket shelves.
I went to Whole Foods last week on a mission to find straight forward, good-for-you treats and actually found a few that I couldn’t keep my own hands off of, let alone Kenya’s.
These Bare Fruit 100% organic, bake-dried chips are to die for. They have the crisp texture of a potato chip, but the sweet natural taste of your favorite fruits. With a variety of kinds like Fuji apple, pear, Granny Smith apple, cherry and mango, there’s truly a flavor for everyone.
The day I bought them I wound up eating the entire bag on the way home and gave myself a stomach ache. Thank goodness kids tend to be better about portion control, because mommy can get a little out of control sometimes! Luckily I bought several bags, so when I got home
Kenya’s eyes lit up as he munched and crunched on fruit chips.

  1. The look great. I’ll check for them at my Whole Foods. Trader Joe’s has freeze dried mango that’s my 11 month old’s current favorite.

  2. We love these too. The mango flavor is SO intense! I haven’t seen the fuji apple flavor. Not sure it would matter as I’m addicted to the mango flavor.
