Summer Snacks for Kids--Welch's Fruit Snacks

WELCH'S® Fruit Snacks White Grape Peach

Looking for a sweet fun snack for kids this summer?  Welch's Fruit Snacks are gummy snacks made with real fruit.  They contain 100% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin C and 25% of vitamins A and E.  They are packaged individually for portion control and each serving contains 80 calories.  They are fat free and gluten free.  They come in 10 great flavors, including mixed fruit, white grape raspberry, tangy fruits, white grape peach, concord grape, island fruits, fruit punch, berries and cherries, strawberry and reduced sugar mixed fruits.

These taste great!  There were distinctively different fruit tastes from each packet to each bite.  I love that they are fat free and preservative free.  However, I wish that they didn't add dyes to them.  They are so unnecessary.  I also think they are pretty high in sugar.  I know some of that is from the fruits themselves, but corn syrup and sugar are listed as the second and third ingredients.  There is the reduced sugar version, which I would prefer for my children.

That being said, if you give your children gummy treats for snacks, I think the Welch's would be a better option with the fruit base it offers.  You can find them on the web at
