{Review} FruitziO and Back to School Lunches!


Do you have a student heading back to school? My little guy heads to Kindergarten next month, and I have already started thinking about what to pack in his lunch box. What can I send, other than his sandwich and carrots? What can he manage to open or peel on his own? When I heard about FruitziO and Crispy Green freeze-dried fruit snacks, I was excited to be sending great healthy snacks to school! I surprised my two little guys, with a picnic in the back yard, so we could try the many great varieties offered by Crispy Green and Fruitzio!  These freeze-dried fruit snacks crunch like chips, and taste amazing! My little guy said he can not wait to take the Apples & Strawberries in his new lunchbox, and might even share with his friends! He then asked, "Do you think my teacher might want to try them too?" He wants to share his snacks with his new teacher, and I think it is a great idea!  I am so excited to offer great alternatives and options that encourage healthy eating!

FruitziO and Crispy Green come in quick and easy packaging, the perfect size for my son's lunch box. My son can not wait to select his own FruitziO or Crispy Green pack from our pantry! The more he can help to get out the door in the early morning, the happier this Momma will be! Every Mom wants to send healthy lunches, and FruitziO is your solution! So quick, so easy, so healthy!
Back-to-school time brings a sense of relief to most parents. The return of peace and quiet at home and settling back into "normal" daily routines are things many parents look forward to by the end of the summer. At the same time, they are starting to worry about their own back-to-school assignments, such as buying school supplies and new clothes. But for many parents, deciding what to pack in their kids’ school lunches has become one of the toughest jobs.The good news is that Crispy Green® has just the right solution for all parents who are searching for healthy snacks that are nutritious, portable, mess-free and kid-friendly.
