Like most kids, Kaden loves the Cars, Snoopy, Spongebob, Mickey Mouse, etc. fruit snacks at the store. I, however, do not like the price, all of the junk that they put in them or the tantrum Irelyn throws when I won’t give her any because they’re too chewy and gross. I found a recipe on Pinterest (of course!) for healthy fruit snacks, so I thought I’d give it a try. Here’s a link! (sorry for the picture quality, my camera and I haven’t been getting along lately and taking a picture while holding a one year old doesn’t help either)
We decided to try strawberry & blueberry. In hindsight, I think we may have liked doing just one flavor at a time better.
The finished product. The funny part of the story: the kid that I thought would love them (Irelyn) didn’t, the kid that I thought wouldn’t touch them (Kaden) actually likes them! Ours are a little thinner than the recipe shows because I didn’t have an 8″ x 8″ pan to use today. Although I still haven’t found fruit snacks that I’ll let Irelyn have, I did find a healthier option for Kaden. I wasn’t a big fan of them either; but I will try making them again with a single flavor to see if that changes anything.
