Nutritious Disney Themed Snacks in Stores

Got a picky eater in your house? Always searching for ways to get your little ones to eat healthier snacks? Well, Disney has some fun, healthy snack options that might just make your little ones choose some nutritious fruits and vegetables over those sugary cookies and chips that they seem to crave. And you might just be surprised to find that your kiddos won’t be the only ones craving these healthy snacks! So let’s take a look at some of the tasty options available in your local produce department.

Some of the tasty snacks that we’ve noticed in the produce departments of stores in our area, include a three section snack called “Foodles,” that are available in a variety of options which include the following combinations: apple slices with grapes and cheddar cheese chunks, or apple slices with pretzels and cheddar cheese chunks, or apple slices with peanut butter and cheese chunks, or apple slices with peanut butter and raisins. I’ve seen online that there are also combinations that include some fresh cut veggies like carrots and celery with ranch dippins sauce, although we’ve yet to see these in the stores in our area. But with clever packaging in the shape of a Mickey head, that includes some of our favorite Disney characters, these healthy snack options are sure to catch the eye of kiddos.

Another healthy and yummy item we’ve noticed are the new Crunch Pak FlavorZ infused apple slices. These are individually packaged apple slices which have been infused with additional fruit flavoring. Now why would you add a different fruit flavoring to an apple, right? I know, I was a little skeptical at first too. So of course I had to try it for myself. Now remember, I was skeptical going into this, so I really didn’t have high expectations for these convenient little snacks. But I was extremely surprised at how good they really were. The additional flavoring is not overwhelming, it’s just a subtle sweetness in addition to the apple flavor. And the apples themselves were very good, very crunchy and juicy, unlike some of the pre-packaged sliced fruit from other brands that you open up and is already turning color or has dried out. The Crunch Pak FlavorZ come in three different flavors, including the Disney Princesses Strawberry & Vanilla, Phineas & Ferb Peach Mango, and Mickey & Pals Grape. Each package includes 5 individual packages of sliced apples and retails for about $3.99. If you’re one of those moms trying to find a way to encourage your children to choose healthy snacks or if you’re like me and just love anything that makes packing a lunch easier, then these are definitely worth the extra cost. And you might want to pick up more than one pack, because you might find that your kids aren’t the only ones reaching for their favorite Disney characters on the go! So give them a try and let us know what you think!
