Review: Fruit Heroes Fruit Bars
I’m not sure about any other parent’s but it seems within the OneDadOneBlog house we have a growing four year old who despite having breakfast, lunch and tea at pre-school (inclusive of deserts) still comes home and utter’s those fateful words….. “I’m hungry”
Followed swiftly by “What have you got?!” Hold on a second, when did we inherit a teenager? This child is like a dustbin or a vacuum cleaner, hoovering up anything within sight given half the chance.
So what do you do? Give into his hunger demands and plate up some of Mrs F and my tea, meaning:
- He would then be having a second tea of the evening
- or more important, I would be getting less as this wasn’t planned….
Well in fact we massively worry about him over eating, so rather than give him a full meal, we tend to give him a snack such as fruit. The problem is he gets wise to this after time and pre-empties our response by finishing off his plea for food with a… “and not fruit”.
Thats where Fruit Heroes Fruit bars come in use. Originating from Denmark this little “stick-like” snack counts as one of your “5 a day” and come in four different flavours: Strawberry, Blackcurrant, Banana and Apple & Raspberry. Made up of pure fruit, these treats can be used in-between meals to boost energy levels as well as mood and concentration levels.
They also have:
- No added sugar
- No added colourings
- No added preservatives
- No sulphur dioxide
- No gluten or diary
- Not been cooked or baked
- Naturally high fibre content
- Natural ingredients
So although H says no to fruit, he doesn’t seem to say no to Fruit Heroes due to the fact they look like he is enjoying a sweet rather than an actual fruit.
Ideal for lunch boxes, car journey’s, trips out and more, Fruit Heroes Fruit Bars are available now from Tesco, Holland & Barrett, Tree of Life, One Stop, Amazon and selected health stores in convenient 20g single bars and five-bar multi-packs.
Fruit Heroes recently conducted a survey of 1,000 British parents which revealed that there is a lot of confusion and misleading information about sugar and the nutritional guidelines have changed so much they don’t know what to feed their kids anymore! The recent report revealed that a staggering 84% of parents are concerned about their child’s diet and according to some of them at least fruit is bad for you and crisps count as one of your 5-a-day.
To help address some of these concerns, Fruit Heroes are inviting customers to log onto https://www.facebook.com/FruitHeroesUK the chance to participate in a live Facebook Webchat with nutritional expert, Dr Sarah Schenker. Registered Dietician and Nutritionist, Dr Sarah, will be answering concerned parents questions about diet and nutrition on the 29th of July from 5.00pm to 6.00pm. Fans are encouraged to send their questions for Dr Sarah in a private message on Facebook or email Fruit Heroes directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
They definitely hit the spot with H thats for sure….!
Until next time
NB: We were given a box of each flavour of Fruit Heroes Fruit Bars in exchange for a review / informative blog on them. All opinions expressed about the product are my own (and H’s)
