One of the biggest struggles I find myself having with my children, especially my older children, is getting them to snack healthy!  Between the endless supply of sugary snacks on the grocery store shelves and their sneakiness when it comes to getting their hands on those snacks, it’s not always easy to make sure that they are snacking as healthy as I would like them to.

When I was asked to try Dole Real Fruit Bites I was excited to see if my children would choose them in place of the normal sugary snacks that they usually go for.  When I received the Real Fruit Bites I put them on the kitchen counter and waited to see which of the kids would choose them as an after school snack, it didn’t take long before Lil Man tore into a pack (expecting raisins) and came to me with this confused, yet surprisingly happy look on his face…I think that meant he liked them!

For those of you who don’t know, Dole Real Fruit Bites are real dried fruit bites covered in yogurt and sprinkled with toasted whole grain oats and at only 80 calories, these fruit bites are the perfect snack option for everyone from hungry toddlers to dieters in need of a little sweetness!  Available in Apple, Pineapple and Mango, Dole Real Fruit Bites are perfect for snacking on the go or for night owls like me, they are a great alternative to left over Easter candy at 1 am! 


We received the Dole Apple Real Fruit Bites to review and I have to tell you, it was a huge hit at our house!  All of my kiddos love fruit (thank goodness) and apples are their favorite!  I left the Dole Real Fruits Bites on the kitchen counter where the older kids’ after-school snacks are usually stashed…it didn’t take long for the kiddos to start snacking on the Dole Real Fruit Bites and then commenting on the new yummy snack!


All of the kids loved the Apple fruit bites, as a matter of fact, they’ve liked them so much that they’ve requested them on almost every shopping trip since!  Given the fact that my children love Dole Real Fruit Bites and the fact that they are so not a diet deal breaker, I don’t so much mind that my kiddos ask for them often…it gives me a great excuse to buy them…a total win-win!
