Do your kids eat fruit?

Posted Mar 03 2010 5:42am

Recently, as I’ve taught the 1st grade and preschool classes about eating more fruits and vegetables I explain that fresh, frozen, canned, dried, and Juice all count!   Although my kids don’t eat much dried fruit other than mangoes and raisins, they really love fruit leather!

Stretch Island Fruit (my favorite dried fruit company who is not compensating me in any way for saying that)  is collecting data to determine how much fruit our kids are really eating.  I love being part of survey’s.  When I’m not and the news says, “ 56% of American’s don’t wash their hands after they go to the bathroom,” I want to yell…”NO ONE EVER ASKED ME!!!”  That’s why I like to be asked.   Stretch Island said,

Our ultimate goal for this survey is to gather feedback from a significant number of people in order to identify solid statistics about fruit intake and, ultimately, educate people about the importance of fruit consumption. 

I thought it was a great idea for a survey, so I wanted to share it with you all.

We buy fruit leather at Costco all the time.  When we are out of fresh fruit, the kids grab a fruit leather to stick in their lunch.  Stretch Island Fruit strips are all fruit, and no sugar!

Here are my kids eating the Fruitabu Strawberry rolls.
