It is officially back to school for the boys next week, and we are ready. We will be doing an online transition before they go back to in person, and we are excited to get back to a routine.
We have been doing some back-to-school shopping, including looking for healthy snacks for them to have on the go and to take to school. Shopping for back-to-school is one of my favourites. However, there is always a bit of a challenge when picking things the boys will actually eat!
I find it so disappointing packing a full lunchbox for them to have them come home with most of it untouched. My youngest is not a big fan of eating lots of fresh fruits, so GoGo squeeZ snack pouches are my way to go with him.
Thankfully GoGo squeeZ products are made from 100% fruit, so they make the best alternative to fresh fruit for a school morning snack, lunchbox & afternoon snack, and they are super easy to take with you on-the-go. These are perfect for school lunches as they have a super convenient ready-to-eat, re-closable pouch packaging. I can also easily pack them in my purse if we are going somewhere, and I want them to have a healthy snack while we are out, at the park, playing soccer, or running errands.
My boys also love that they can pick from a variety of yummy flavours, with their all-time favourite being the Apple – Banana. We try to always get them a variety of flavours for them to try.
I love that you can find them in-store at Loblaw’s, Walmart, Sobeys, Metro, Super C, IGA, Maxi, Costco (organic variety pack) and online (on Amazon and some e-commerce shops). I order mine directly from Amazon, and I love the convenience of having them delivered to my front door. I have been doing a lot of online shopping for most of our groceries lately, so this is a great perk.
GoGo squeeZ products have no added sugar, no artificial flavours, they are nut-free, making them perfect for the school environment, non-GMO, gluten-free, and they are a source of fibre! All things I look for when picking snacks for the boys.
The kids find these so fun and easy to eat and they enjoy all of the flavours. They continuously ask me for these, and with a selection of flavours like apple apple, apple banana, apple strawberry, apple peach, apple blueberry, and more, there is something for everyone to try.
Are you curious about the nutritional value of GoGo squeeZ? Before I get snacks for the kids, I like checking the nutritional value of the items we purchase as well, so I was pleasantly surprised to find out about a recent study published by Professor Adam Drewnowski that assessed the nutritional quality of 65 of the most common snacks consumed by children in Canada. GoGo squeeZ was positioned as an alternative to fresh fruit with nutritional proximity (made from 100% fruit with no added sugar and no artificial flavours) to increase fruit consumption at children’s snack time, a practical and healthy option. More information and the full article here.
The info above gives me peace of mind when selecting GoGo squeeZ as a healthy snack for my boys.
The boys also had a chance to try the GoGo squeeZ Tropicalz pouches, and they love them. They come in a big pouch, and the flavours are amazing, they want me to get some more!
These also have some fun games printed right on the packaging, like word find. I thought these would be great to keep the kids entertained when going on road trips!
We are now ready for back to school, and our snack drawer is filled with GoGo squeeZ goodness for them to have.
Are your little ones ready for school?
