As a kid, my mom frequently packed my lunch with Fruit Roll-ups. I LOVED Fruit Roll-Ups as a kid. They were fruity tasting and "fun" because you could play with your food...like have roll-up fingers. (No judgment please).
Today, the idea of a Fruit Roll-up isn't nearly as appetizing. First, I'd much rather eat a whole piece of fruit to get the fiber and nutrients. And second, Fruit Roll-Ups, contrary to popular belief, are not all that healthy.
Recently, I was sent a snack by the Stretch Island Fruit Company. They sent their line of Fruit Strips which look similar to fruit roll-ups. Of course, I immediately looked at the ingredient list and Nutrition Facts. I rarely will try a food unless I think they are made with quality ingredients. I liked what I saw, so I ripped open the Summer Strawberry flavored strip. I loved it.
If you are currently buying Fruit Roll-Ups for your kids, I highly suggest that you switch immediately. Here's a comparison:
