A question I often hear is, “How can I feed my family healthy foods and save time doing it?” Moms are busy and the biggest challenge we face is finding time to prepare healthy meals and snacks. We are off to PTA, soccer, dance class, play dates, the list goes on, and on. We also understand how important it is to serve healthy snacks to our on-the-go kids. Most convenient snacks in the grocery isles are full of preservatives, sugar and what I like to call, “junk.”

There is hope for those of us who want to give our kids healthy snacks. I found a delicious pre-packaged snack that is also nutritious. Fruit Bliss is a wholesome snack with out preservatives or sugars. Made using high-quality whole fruit sourced from Turkey, France and Tunisia, Fruit Bliss’ sun-sweetened whole apricots, plums, dates and figs are infused with moisture to deliver a deliciously juicy fruit every time.
Fruit Bliss was founded in 2011 by Susan Leone, a mother on a mission to create a nutritiously rich and convenient snack for the whole family. As a health conscious mom, Susan is dedicated to creating a wholesome snack with no additional preservatives or sugars, offering the very best natural fruit in a convenient-to-carry package.
“When looking for snacks for my family that were both nutritious and convenient, the grocery store aisles were turning up short,” commented Susan Leone of Fruit Bliss, “That is when I knew I had the opportunity to offer up something new to other active people like myself—whether looking for something new and healthy to feed the kids, or just a treat for yourself between work and yoga.”

I love nutritious grab and go snacks. When I am out and about with my kids I can toss a couple of packages in my mom bag or keep some in my van. Fruit Bliss is sweet and delicious. When I give it to my kids I am confident that they are getting a healthy snack. But, when I tried the apricots they looked and tasted more like prunes. I enjoy prunes, but was not expecting a dark colored apricot. Fortunately, I did not have any more surprises after I opened the other packages.
