Well, it’s that time of year again, time to think about back to school preparations. In addition to outfitting your kids with new school clothes and gear, why not overhaul their bagged lunch options as well. Sprout foods debuts their line of organic kids snacks just in time for the back to school rush.
Nutrition is a key element of your child’s overall academic success. Children can focus longer and remain actively engaged during class lessons if their nutritional needs have been met with tasty and healthy options.
The new Sprout Smash Organic Kids Snack Pouches have the great taste school-aged kids love, and the nutrition their parents demand.
Sprout Foods, which offers chef-inspired, wholesome and certified organic foods for children, announced today the launch of Sprout Smash Organic Kids Snack Pouches, its first-ever line of food for school-aged kids. These new, great tasting organic pureed snacks, ideal for kids pre-school through elementary school, come in easy-to-squeeze pouches and feature wholesome ingredients.
The Sprout Smash Organic Kids Snack Pouches – in nine tasty Vegetable & Fruit, Greek Yogurt & Superfruit, and Quinoa, Coconut & Fruit flavors – are nutritionally superior to the standard applesauce snacks offered on the market today. The Sprout Smash snacks are made with real vegetables, fruits and grains, are certified USDA organic, and deliver nutrition from whole foods, not artificial fortification. Each 4 oz. Sprout Smash snack provides about 20% more product than the pouch-snack competition and comes in a BPA-free, squeezable pouch with a re-sealable cap that makes them great for on-the-go kids.
“When children reach school age, their days are filled with learning, playing and trying new activities, and it seems like they are always on the move. But most of the grab-as-you-go snack foods available today simply aren’t healthy,” says Geoff Stella, VP of Marketing , Sprout Foods. “We’ve created the Sprout Smash snacks with that in mind, to give kids wholesome foods that are full of nutrition and flavor and can be enjoyed whenever, wherever.”
The Sprout Smash Organic Kids Snack Pouches line-up includes:
Vegetable & Fruit flavors that are made from more vegetables than fruit and are nutritious, naturally sweet, and delicious (Butternut Squash & Grape, Pumpkin & Strawberry, Carrot & Orange);
Greek Yogurt & Superfruit flavors packed with protein from the non-fat Greek Yogurt and high-antioxidants from the fruit blends (Strawberry & Cherry, Acai & Raspberry, Blueberry & Blackcurrant); and
Quinoa, Coconut & Fruit flavors made with nutritious quinoa and coconut milk for the perfect quick, light morning meal or tasty after-school or after-sports snack (Cherry & Apple, Peach & Banana, Banana & Berry).
The Sprout Smash Organic Kids Snack Pouches will be available in the applesauce section of national grocers in August. For more information, please visit www.sproutorganicfoods.com.
