I was excited to learn that Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks are now GLUTEN FREE! In the past I have shyed away from these types of packaged grocery store snacks but after revisiting the ingredients, I have had a change of heart. Each packet is under 100 calories, made with real fruit, a source of vitamin C, and low fat. Yes, they do have sugars and corn syrup but I think in moderation they aren't the enemy!
I've been tossing one of these packaged snacks in my son's lunch box the past few weeks and he's enjoyed them quite a bit. He especially liked the Create-A-Bugs fruit snacks which are right up his 8 year old insect loving alley. I'd buy these again!
Plus, my son's school collects the Box Tops for Education and so many of his GFCF and organic foods don't have these, so he was excited to see them and quite insistent that I get the scissors and cut them off right away. What he doesn't quite get is that they win a pizza party for the class who wins - so its not like he can really partake in the prize (without me making him his own GFCF pizza, which I have done when his class has won in the past).
