A Healthy Apple Pie Snack That Kids Love & giveaway


      I am always looking for ways to get my kids to eat more fruit as for some strange reason they don't care for fruit. The only way I can get my boys to eat fruit is by making the eat it first before I give them the rest of their meal. Once they start eating the fruit, they then realize it tastes good and eat it all up. Maybe it is the extra chewing that is involved in fruit that makes my boys not want to eat fruit. I always have a variety of fruit in the house also. What is a mom to do?

I have discovered a fun new way to get my boys to eat more fruit. I buy Big Slice apples and my boys finally beg for fruit. My boys think they are eating apple pie, but they are really eating healthy cooked apples that taste like apple pie. I think the colorful packages with delicious names on them helps too. I just love that these fruit pouches can be stored in the pantry and my boys can help themselves to fruit anytime they want. These pouches contain apples that are slow cooked in fruit juices. Some of the flavors contain other fruits to make them so delicious. 


Big Slice apples come in 16 yummy flavors. I was sent 14 pouches of Big Slice apples, 7 of the yummy flavors, and my boys and I had fun trying them all. I think cherry vanilla was our favorite with pineapple passion fruit being a 2nd favorite. My boys loved that they could eat the fruit right out of the package. These pouches would be so easy to take on the go too. Take a look at all the delicious flavors these apples come in.
All the apples are gluten free, GMO free, and some even contain other superfood healthy ingredients like green tea, aloe  and hemp seed. 


If my boys save me some of the Big Slice apples, I will add them to my yogurt or oatmeal. Next time I make waffles I will use the Big Slice apples instead of syrup for a healthy breakfast. They would be also great for smoothies. My favorite way to eat these apples is right out of the pouch. Thank goodness I can find these healthy wholesome apple slices at my favorite stores like Target, Costco, and Whole Foods, as I think I am going to have to buy more very soon. My hungry boys might just eat them all before I get a chance to have more. How can I say no, to buying more, when my boys are eating fruit. Just look at the smiles!


Check out Big Slice apples on their website and other social media for more information.

  6. Well my favorite would depend on if I'm eating it for a yummy dessert or a healthy snack. So of course I'll start with dessert, it would of corse be the cinnamon French toast and if it was for a snack, it'd have to be the very healthy sounding banana mango & hemp seed. Jackie V

    Our son recently went through feeding therapy for a month of intensive OT work. We are trying to get him to eat more textures and food groups. This looks like another great one to try. Right now he only accepts cantaloupe as a fruit he likes. Thank you for telling us about this! Jenn
