Packing lunches for my kids is a daily thing I do! I enjoy finding snacks that I can pack them, that are not only yummy, but healthy for them too. All too often, the yummy snacks offer lots of fat, sugar or ingredients that are not good for their growing bodies. So I am always excited to stumble across (or be introduced) to something new...something that can be sent during the week to offer their growing bodies some nutrition and also satisfy their sweet tooth.

When I was contacted to try out the all new "Dole No Sugar Added Fruit Bowls", there was no way I was going to say NO. Plus, if my kids enjoy these new fruit bowls, I will definitely be interested in buying more for their lunches for the remainder of the school year.
Plus, don't you want to know if they are something you should buy for your family??
My youngest daughter volunteered to be my taste tester for this review/feature!
She started with the Diced Peaches and she liked them...a lot! She proceeded to gobble down the entire little bowl. No worries for this mommy...because it offers her a low calorie snack, that is sweetened with monk fruit concentrate. I asked her if they tasted "NORMAL" and she said yes...as she continued eating them. She didn't seem to mind that they weren't sweetened with any high sugar or artificial sweetener. AWESOME!
Next, it was the Mandarin Oranges turn. Now, I noticed a difference with them, at least from the appearance standpoint. Instead of being solid orange sections, like they typically are when they come out of a can or other fruit cups...it appeared that the oranges were almost "shredded" or disintegrated. I'm not sure if the monk fruit concentrate broke down the sections or what...but she didn't seem to mind at all. She gobbled them down, said they tasted normal & were good, she loved them and was all finished and wanting more. HA!
I'd say, all in all, these Dole No Sugar Added Fruit Bowls will make an awesome addition to the lunch packing routine I've already had in place for this school year.
Just throw in a fruit bowl and a spoon and they have a healthy dessert for their jam packed school day. LOVE IT!
