  • No I don't buy them I did when DS was younger and he had cavities after I cut them out he hasn't had any. The dentist said even with brushing they are really bad about sticking to the teeth,

    Sorry prob more info then you were looking for!

  • I don;t buy them. When my kids were little I was talking to the dentist they said that the number one cause of kids cavities was fruit snacks and gummy candies. Ever since then I have never bought them.

  • My son is pretty much off the fruit snack kick, though he does enjoy fruit by the foot or fruit roll ups on occasion

  • My youngest really arent into them anymore but my teenagers are lol. We usually get fruit by the foot for them.

  • yes, my 4 and 2 year old eat them almost everyday (once a day at most) and neither of them have cavities. as long as they eat stuff like this in moderation and have good brushing habits, the risk of cavities is very small. i either get dora or the walmart "fruit smiles" brand.

  • Occasionally I will. I buy Welch's.

  • I buy them a couple times a year, what kind depends on what's on sale and/or where I'm shopping.
