Del Monte Fruit Burst Squeezers

As a mom who has three school lunches to pack every morning, I am always looking for healthy lunchbox options that I know my kids will eat. So when I was given the opportunity to learn more about Del Monte Fruit Burst Squeezers, I was anxious for my kids to give them a try.

About Del Monte Fruit Burst™ Squeezers:

  • Each Fruit Burst Squeezer contains 1 ½ servings of fruit or fruit and veggies
  • They are an excellent source of vitamins C and A.
  • They contain no high fructose corn syrup.
  • They contain no artificial flavors.
  • They are made in the USA.

As a registered dietitian, I absolutely will not buy snacks for my kids that contain high fructose corn syrup.  So I applaud Del Monte for paying attention to consumer concerns, and not using high fructose corn syrup in this product.  I also love that the pouches are BPA-free.

Del Monte Fruit Burst™ Squeezers come in several different varieties.  They have three simple fruit varieties:  Apple Cinnamon, Mixed Berry, and Strawberry.  They also have two fruit + veggie varieties:  Peach-Mango, and Blueberry.  I have to admit that I am most excited about the fruit + veggie varieties.  It’s a great way to get some vegetables in your kids without them even knowing it.  All they will taste is the fruit.

My kids had the opportunity to try the Strawberry and Peach-Mango varieties.  First of all, it is wonderful that these come in little squeezable pouches, which means I don’t have to pack a spoon with them.   One less plastic spoon to end up in the landfill.

So how do they taste?  Both flavors of the squeezers were a big hit with my kids, but the Peach-Mango was the favorite hands-down.  I had to try one myself and I have to say it is the perfect combination of tart and sweet.  You definitely can not taste the pumpkin and carrot that is in there, yet you are getting the health benefits from all that vitamin A.  My two youngest daughters have already asked me to get some more Fruit Burst Squeezers at the store for their lunches.  So I have to give this product a two thumbs up.  We will definitely be picking up some of the other varieties to see how the kids like those as well.

I know I am not alone in my struggle to get my kids to consume more fruits and veggies on a daily basis.  So I love that the Del Monte Fruit Burst Squeezers are a yummy way to get kids to eat more fruits and vegetables.  It is nice to have another healthy lunchbox option that my kids will readily eat.

    It IS hard to get two of the kids here to EAT veggies! REAL HARD. oh I don’t like that or this.. and they push it around on their plates, eat only meat!!! Grrr but they DO like fruit so I would let them have fruit and veggies squeezers! I HAVE gotten them and they eat it right up. Painlessly getting their veggies. I will try the Blueberry fruit burst one.

    I love that the Fruit Bursts container is resealable. If I could choose one flavor to try it would be blueberry.

    These are an easy way to send a fruit in my child’s lunchbox. I also like to keep a few in the car for on-the-go snacks.

    We’ve used these on camp outs as they are super easy to throw into a backpack for a quick snack/burst of energy while along the trail! The Apple Cinnamon was my fave, but my scouts seem to prefer the mixed berry.

    I most love the fact that they have ones with fruits and veggies, like you said it’s a great way to add veggies without the kids knowing, I also love how great they are as I prefer to use products that do not contain High fructose corn syrup. Also love the convenience of these and the fact that extras spoon is not needed to eat them. I think the peach mango would be the favorite at my house but honestly I think we would enjoy all flavors. Thanks for the chance to win this yummy prize for my family!
