We’ve officially been back to school for one week, and it’s been quite the adjustment from the lazy days of holiday break. After weeks of festive foods, desserts and a break from lunchbox packing, it has been tough for all of us to get back on track. I’m sure many parents out there can relate to the struggle.
One way I’ve been combatting the holiday sweet tooth withdraws and helping myself get back into the lunchbox packing groove is by offering up Crispy Green Crispy Fruit. They offer a line of tasty freeze-dried fruit perfect for lunchboxes, snacks, breakfast and dessert.
Spoiler Alert: All pre-packaged foods are not bad! So, what exactly is freeze-dried fruit? Let’s break it down for you.
Freshly-picked fruit is cleaned and sliced, then frozen to below 0°F. Then the fruit is placed in a vacuum chamber that removes 98% of the moisture, before being inspected and packed for you!
Here are 3 Reasons to Add Crispy Green to your child’s lunchbox:
- Convenience. They’re packaged in single-servings to easily grab and go. Forgot to prep something to go along with that thermos of soup for lunch? No problem!
- 100% pure fruit, nothing else! If you turn the package over and look at the ingredient list, you’ll only see one thing: fruit. There are no preservatives, added sugars or anything artificial going on here.
- No wasted food. Don’t you hate it when the lunchbox comes back with a half-eaten apple? That won’t be the case here. These fruit crisps will be scarfed down by your little ones.
