I am always trying to get my husband and kids to get excited about healthy food. Its often hit or miss. Most times Adam will like something if there is at least some meat in it, or chocolate (for desserts, of course). With the kids, its pretty unpredictable.
Anything individually packaged, though horrible for the environment, seems to be more appealing to the girls, for some reason. So I was happy to receive some heart healthy samples to try.
I was sent the following:
Ceres Fruit Smoothies To Go (3 flavours)
On The Go Snacks Edamame Fusion Snacks
Big A is not a big dried fruit eater, so she didn't touch these. Little A loves this type of thing, though she doesn't like roasted edamame. So she dumped out the contents and just picked out all the edamame.
Adam dumped a pouch on his salad one evening (he usually has nuts, seeds and dried fruit he adds anyways), and he liked it. He really liked the additional protein the edamame adds.
Neither of us were thrilled that all the dried fruit is sweetened though. But only 140 calories and 9g protein per pack!
Simply Delish chocolate pudding mix
I have bought the girls Simply delish vanilla pudding and their jelly dessert before but never the chocolate. I made it with some unsweetened soy milk I had lying around and they LOVED it. I love that it takes just minutes to make and these products are all made with stevia and erythritol instead of sugar. We will continue to buy this stuff because the girls really love it and consider it a big treat.
The pudding was the clear winner in terms of everyone's preference, but also I like that it is not in an individual serving...cause better for the environment!
Eating healthy can be enjoyable, there are so many options out there now that are better for you and really yummy.
