Now the boys are back in school one of my everyday tasks is to make their packed lunches interesting, healthy and varied so they don’t end up eating the same things everyday. I like to think that I make them healthy lunches and that they enjoy eating them. So when I was asked if the boys would like to try a selection of Yu! Snacks I agreed that they could give them a try.
Yu! snacks are a range of healthy snacks which are made from 100% real fruit. They are, great for lunchboxes or just as a snack between meals. you can buy them from Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose.
The first snack that the boys tried was the Yu! Bars. They contain 40% fruit and cereal and are covered in yogurt. They are available in strawberry, raspberry, blackcurrant, raisin and banana. They cost 45p for a single bar 25g or £2 for a 5 bar multipack.
The boys didn’t really like the Yu! Fruit Chews but I thought that they were very nice. The chews are bite-sized pieces of dried fruit, they are 100% fruit and count as one of your 5-a-day. Each bag has less than 90 calories, are fat free and have no added sugar. Even though the boys didn’t like them I will be buying them in the future as they are ideal for myself as a healthy snack when out and about.
The last snack that the boys tried was the Yogurt-Coated Fruit Pieces. These are exactly what they say. They are tasty fruit bites covered in a creamy yogurt coating. They contain real fruit and real yogurt. They are available in strawberry, raspberry, blackcurrant, raisin and banana. They cost 45p for a single bar 25g or £2 for a 5 bar multipack. Nathan is a huge fan of bananas and is the only fruit he will eat. So when I gave him these to try I wasn’t expecting him to eat them. But he loved them.
I intend to buy some of the Yu! Snacks for the boys for their packed lunches as I know that they like them and will eat them.
