Buddy Fruits Pure Fruit Bites and Pure Blended Fruit Pouches Review and Giveaway $15 Value

I am a very, very lucky mother.  My three boys eat very healthy and enjoy fruits and veggies. 
But sometimes I enjoy finding new products to mix up their healthy eating....and provide NEW and EXCITING ways to incorporate nutritious foods.
Buddy Fruits fits my goal to a "T".

I was so excited to find out that Buddy Fruits has created three different kinds of products to help my boys get the balanced diet, every child desperately needs.

Pure Blended Fruit in a resealable pouch
Pure Fruit Bites in a resealable bag
Blended Fruit and Milk in a resealable pouch

Buddy Fruits sent me out a wonderful box of their Pure Blended Fruit....
and Pure Fruit Bites for my children to sample and review.
I want to say as a mother, I LOVE the fact that Buddy Fruits is 100% Fruit...That's It!  ALL FRUIT!!!

1 Buddy Fruits = 1 Portion of Fruit!

And the best part is my boys really, truly enjoyed it!

I was able to sneak, just one of the Pure Fruit Bites and they were very flavorful and had a nice chewy texture.  The come in a wide variety of flavors, even including Pomegranate & Acai Buddy Fruits Bites which are made of 7.2oz fresh apple and 5.3oz of fresh pomegranate.  I smile thinking of the health benefits.  The releasable bag is a wonderful idea, but we didn't have to worry about releasing them as they ate all of them in one sitting. 


I chilled the Pure Blended Fruit Pouches before serving them to our boys.  These pouches are so convenient and the perfect size for a lunch box.  They contain:



No preservatives



No colorings



No additives


No fat


I had one little taste of the Mango, Passion & Banana and it was delicious.  It had a very smooth texture and apple sauce consistency.


Now on to the giveaway details.....

  119. One healthy living fact from Buddy Fruits site is:

    The fact that "Eat your Fruits and Veggies" falls on deaf ears. Not many adults are eating enough fruits and veggies and apparently this is being passed on generations because studies showed that it's even low in younger generations.
