Getting Snack Time Sorted With Fruit Bowl

I don’t know about you but since my son got a bit older we have been stuck in a bit of a snack rut. He’s outgrown a lot of the toddler snacks as to him he “feels like a baby eating them”. Well, so he says. So we have been a bit lazy and when snack time comes around I’ve been handing him crisps, biscuits, sweets. All the while feeling guilty as I know he will eat products that are better for him. But I like him to feel like he’s getting a proper treat. When I was contacted by Fruit Bowl with the offer of some samples for us and some for a giveaway I jumped at the opportunity. We give them two thumbs up, they are so tasty and make a perfect snack, breakfast or lunchtime accompaniment.

Getting Snack Time Sorted With Fruit Bowl

Fruit Bowl snacks are perfect not just for children but adults as well. Instead of reaching for a chocolate bar I’ve been reaching for one of their snack bags. I especially love the Strawberry Yogurt flakes. They have a great and tasty variety of delicious Fruit Flakes, Yogurt Flakes and Raisins, School Bars and Fruit Peelers. These are perfect for fussy eaters and those that can’t resist unhealthy temptations. For me it’s convenience and these snacks truly are convenient as well as contributing towards your 5 a day.

They are so convenient for grabbing for the school pick up run and handing to my son in the car. The packs are also perfect for popping in my bag for an on the go snack on one of our days out or in a pack up for lunch. Most of the Fruit Bowl snacks are also great for popping on your cereal in the morning or adding to your baking.

GIVEAWAY – I have two of each 5 pack of the products in the photo above to giveaway. The products are worth around Β£25. This is a great opportunity to try these great snacks for yourselves. Please see the end of this post for how to enter. It’s really simple.
