We were sent the Googly Fruit snacks for the purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are our own.
As a parent I am always looking for healthy snacks for my kids. It can be so easy to give in and give them those sweets and chocolate they are demanding but why not try to give them something a little healthier?
I am quite lucky in that both my children quite like fruit but sometimes just don’t want a whole piece of fruit. When offered the chance to review Googly Fruit, I knew that these had the potential to go down really well with my children. So who are Googly Fruit and what did we think?
The brand was founded by Natacha and Alex, parents and aunt and uncle to children. Their mission is to help kids make a lifelong friendship with fruit and vegetables.They have given all their fruit and veg googly eyes and cheeky names and personalities. Googly Fruit is made from 100% organic fruit and veg with no organic nonsense.
We were sent a variety of different products for the children to try. So what did we think?
We were sent five of the Squeezy pouches – apple, blueberry and purple carrot; apple, mango and peach; apple, pear, carrot and pumpkin; apple, sweet potato and clementine & apple, strawberry, blueberry and raspberry. Both kids love a pouch – they are so convenient and usually quite tasty and the Googly Fruit pouches are no different. I even tasted a couple – they are so fruity and delicious and you can tell there are no additives in them. They taste just as they’re meant to taste and Olivia and Jack are loving them.
We were sent three packets of their crisps: 100% strawberry, 100% banana and raspberry and 100% apple and blueberry. Olivia has tried little bits of these but I still feel as if she is a little too small for these so Jack has been the one mainly snacking away on them – and loving them! He loves fruit and veg crisps – he loves a tasty snack with crunch!
We were also sent three packs of their crunchy puffs. Now my children LOVE puffed crisps so I was sure these were going to go down well – and I wasn’t wrong. I’ve had to split the packets into two equal halves when giving them as the kids love them so much and don’t really want to share with their sibling! So far the carrot ones seem to be most popular – but the others are well liked by Jack and Olivia too.
As well as this lovely selection of tasty treats that my children have enjoyed, they sent this lovely lot to the kids too: an activity book, googly eyes, stickers and a book that tells you the names of all their fruit and veg! Jack was disappointed not to see his name under J until he realised there was a jackfruit and now he is chuffed! Olivia is quite happy that her name is an Orange, she giggled when we kept pointing to it saying it was her, haha!#
All in all, I have been very impressed by what Googly Fruit has to offer. They are spreading a very popular message – that we should introduce our children to fruit and veg whilst they’re young even if that means making them fun. Their products also taste great and I can be assured that when I am giving my children one of their snacks, I’m not giving them any chemical nasties.
I’ll definitely be picking up some more of these for the kids – I can let the kids snack without worrying about what they are consuming.
Have you ever tried the brand?
