FIL just stopped over to pick something up and brought DS some fruit snacks. The package says they're made and distributed by "healthy foods inc" hahaha

Lol, my kids call those "sugar snacks" and know they're junk food...aka treated the same as candy. It was funny once when someone asked my older son if he wanted some fruit snacks and upon seeing them he exclaimed "You silly, that's not fruit it's a sugar snack!"

The dentist said thats the worst food you can give your kids.  But that was nice of FIL to think of DS.

I was shocked to see that people actually give those instead of fruit, I was talking to a mom and she was telling me how her dd didn't like fruit,but loved,fruit snacks, so she was giving those to her instead of fruit... My oldest dd is 3 and I discovered those things about 6 months ago when we had a playdate to that moms house and she was giving out fruit snacks as a healthy snack....:/

Yikes! I ate way too many of those as a kid, and my teeth sure paid the price. 

I make fruit leather with whole fruit, so that will be the closest thing to a fruit snack my dd will get.
