Try This, Not That: Mango Squeezers vs. Fruit Cup


When you walk down the packaged fruit aisle in the grocery store, you might think "this is all fruit and fruit is good for you so I'm going to grab a few for the kids lunches". Problem... ADDED sugar! When choosing a packaged fruit be sure to read the label for the total calories per serving and total carbohydrates (which will be higher if sugar is added).
Fruit pouches (or squeezers) are a new trend in packaged fruit products. Applesauce or fruit in a squeezable container (that is utensil-free and very portable) has become a snack most kids WANT.  
In comparing this product squeezer to Dole mandarin oranges, the squeezer wins!

*Take note of the change in texture, the applesauce consistency vs. the fruit chunks.*
