In a little less than a week the kids will be going back to school and I am pretty much always on the look out for things to put in their lunches that they will like AND are good for them!
We were sent some samples of products from Santa Cruz Organic to try and I love them.
The Santa Cruz Organic® brand has taken applesauce to a new level with its line of organic fruit sauces. The base for all flavors is created by grinding certified USDA organic apples into a smooth, saucy blend. Additions like cinnamon and spices, pureed organic fruits such as blackberries, cherries, strawberries and apricots make for flavors more complex and lively than ever before.Olivia is a huge fan of the Santa Cruz Apple Peach and Tropical sauces. I kept them in the fridge at her level and she loved getting them out for her afternoon snack. I also sent them in her lunch kit to school and she always ate them! I managed to grab one of each flavour to try and they are absolutely delicious. They taste like real fruit which is always a bonus :).
You get 100% of your daily value of vitamin C in each 4-ounce serving of the sauce cups - perfect for kids' lunch boxes. See for yourself why the Santa Cruz Organic® brand has received numerous awards and accolades for these outstanding applesauces.
Since the Santa Cruz Organic® brand doesn't add sugar to these sauces, pure enjoyment is all you get.
We were sent four different flavours of fruit spreads - Strawberry, Seedless Red Raspberry, Apricot, and Blackberry Pomegranate. I am not exaggerating when I say this is the best spread I have ever tasted that is also available in stores! All four are beyond delicious but my personal favourite is the Raspberry. All three of my kids (and my husband of course) happily ate all four flavours on their sandwiches... which is pretty impressive if you know my kids!FRUIT COMES FIRSTWhen we decided to bring our decades of organic fruit expertise to fruit spreads, we felt strongly that we must give you what you want.
