Recently, I received a package of new MottÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s products to try. Since it was near dinnertime and everyone in my family was starving, I admit I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t read the description of the included items too closely. I simply picked up a few applesauce cups and passed them out to everyone at the table.
After dinner, however, I was shocked to discover that what weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d all enjoyed was the MottÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Medleys Peach Apple Fruit and Veggie Snack. This is a peach applesauce blend with carrot juice, cucumber juice, and green bell pepper juice. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s part of the recent trend of sneaking veggies into your childÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s diet by hiding them in unexpected places. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not something I normally would try, because you have to admit the idea of carrot flavored applesauce sounds kind of gross.
But, I can assure you that nobody in my family thought this applesauce had veggies hidden in it. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a pleasant peach flavored applesauce with the same high quality youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d expect from other MottÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s products, although it does taste best if itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s stirred well before itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s eaten.
If you have a picky eater in your house or youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re just worried about the nutritional quality of your snacks, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d highly recommend giving MottÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Medleys Peach Apple Fruit and Veggie Snacks a try. They are fat free, with no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. Each cup has just 60 calories. This is an easy way to get more vegetables into your familyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s diet without a lot of extra hassle on your part.
If Peach Apple isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t your thing, MottÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Medleys also makes a Cherry Berry Fruit and Veggie Snack offering similar nutritional benefits.
