Review & Giveaway: Yu! Healthy Snacks

As mummy to two young children, having snacks on hand for emergencies/bribes/distractions is always handy but making sure that they are healthy can sometimes be a challenge.  Usually my two are good at eating their fruit but having sneaky ways of making sure they eat more is never a bad thing. When Yu! offered us the chance to try out some of the products from their Healthy Snacks range we were very game.

We were sent a great selection which, as you can see was made up of the Just Fruit Chews, Yoghurt-Coated Fruit Pieces and Yu! Bars.

The first one we tried were the Yu! Bars.  Containing 40% fruit within a yoghurt coated cereal bar.  I shared one of these with Eli and popped one into Meg's lunch box.  Both parties (I didn't really get a look in once Eli had tried it!) were very positive.  We often buy cereal bars for snacks but knowing that these contain some fruit is a very big plus in their favour.  Meg said it was 'delicious' and asked if she could have it again for lunch which is a good sign indeed!

Next up we tried the Yoghurt-Coated Fruit Pieces.  I tried this one myself and I was pleasantly surprised by this, having always imagined yoghurt coated things to be sickly sweet, it was very creamy tasting and satisfying as a mid-morning snack.

Finally, we tried the Just Fruit Chews.  These are bite-sized pieces of dried fruit which have been designed to look and taste like sweets but actually are 100% fruit.  For some reason the kids were less enthusiastic about these which, I managed to deduce was because they are dark in colour.  The sweets that they would normally be given are brightly coloured chewy sweets so they were dubious about my description.  Plus, as Meg kindly pointed out to me, sweets are bad for you.  I think I should have stuck with calling them fruit pieces because no convincing from me would persuade her otherwise!  So, myself and my Other Half were left eating them and we really enjoyed them.  I was surprised at how much I liked the blueberry ones as blueberries aren't a fruit I would normally opt for, I'm not too keen on the taste but these were very nice indeed.  One to bear in mind!

Overall, for a healthy snack I was very impressed by this range.  They offer a good variety of flavours within each type and they are perfect for lunch boxes too which is great if you want to slip in a little treat whilst knowing that they are okay for your children to eat.  We will definitely be buying from this range again as they proved very popular with Meg and Eli, especially the Yu! Bars.
