Help me replace my fruit snacks!!!

DD loves eating fruit snacks! As soon as she comes home from school (half day) she wants some. I try to get her to eat apples and oranges, but as soon as she finished them, she's ready for a fruit snack! So, I need some QUICK, tasty snacks to get her mind off of them!

Re: Help me replace my fruit snacks!!!

We just decided to stop buying them and buy fruit leather instead. It's a bit more expensive so you have to search for your cheapest local source (I buy it from Amazon.com when it is on-sale or I have gift cards) but it is much better for the kids and after a few weeks, mine gave up on asking for the fruit snacks.

Maybe even dried fruit itself?

We've been doing frozen oranges. I just flash froze them and she likes them, but she will only eat so many oranges. LOL Has anyone froze apples? I was thinking of slicing a few and see how those go.

Try finding fruit snacks that are made from real fruit. I think the ones Welches makes are made with real fruit. Or the fruit leather from Costco is really yummy. Or what about frozen grapes? Or you can freeze bananas with chocolate (they have the chocolate stuff right by the bananas at our Wal-Mart)

The super baby food book has a recipe for fruit leather, I make it then take small cookie cutters and cut out shapes, and stick it to wax paper, DS thinks they are a "new kind" of fruit snack.

Have you tried the freeze dried apple and pear slices...they are called CRISPS (I got mine from Costco)...it's 100% fruit. But if you're looking for something chewy, I second the costco fruit leather.
