Answer: Fruit Roll-Ups Mini Rolls by General Mills – The label states 'Naturally Flavored', but these are about as far from nature as you can get and still be called a 'fruit' roll-up! These snacks are everywhere - lunchboxes and sports games - but with all the fake AND harmful ingredients like corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oil, and artificial colors, they're far from REAL or healthy for your child. Vote with your dollar. Send a message to the food companies and leave them on the grocery store shelf!
REAL Alternative: FruitaBü Organic Smoooshed Fruit, a real fruit treat that is available in many grocery stores, is made of all natural ingredients. These are a great once-in-a-while treat, but remember that whole fruit is an even better option for a snack because you get all the vitamins, minerals and fiber that comes along with eating the skin and all!
