SOME TIPS FOR EASY SNACKS

It is important for parents to feed their kids food they can feel good about. I’m always looking to find snacks that are minimally processed with no GMO’s—that’s why I can always trust the Sun-Maid brand. I love their raisins, and they now have these new Sour Raisin Snacks that are a better-for-you fruit snack made from whole fruit. Sour Raisin Snacks have NO added sugar, and they are naturally sweet and wonderfully sour at the same time. They come in a lot of great flavors including Strawberry, Watermelon, Mixed Berry and Grape. This is a great go-to snack everyone will love. For more information, visit: sunmaid.com
