I wasn't part of the influencer program, but I should try the Up and Up brand.  Every now and then we try another brand and my 3 year old loves the fruit in these.

I always have snacks ready for my son when he comes home from school. He loves granola bars and cheese sticks.

Yw! I hope he enjoys them! My 7 yr old loved them more than my 22 month old haha!

Quoting countrygirlkat:

My son has lots of food allergies including lots of fruits but he could have the apple ones so I think I will give them a try.  Thanks for saying what the consistancy was like because this whole post so far I have been trying to figure out if they were like juice or what, lol. 

Quoting erikays:

Hello Ladies!

I'm Erika and I'm a mother to a 7.5 yr old, 3 yr old and 22 month old! We were chosen to a review on the Target Up & Up food pouches!

What arrived:

6 food pouches: Apple, Banana (2), Banana Pumpkin, Apple Sweet Potato and Banana Plum.

Portable and convenient they were! I grabbed one before rushing out the door, to get my oldest from school. It was easy for my 22 month old to eat in the truck, without making a huge mess, while we waited for my son.

When we got home, my son just haaaad to try a banana one lol. His response was, "Wow, this thing is delicious! Can i have another please?" LOL!

My kids have tried other Up & Up snacks, like the puffed grain snacks and those puffed wheeled shaped snacks, when they were a baby. I tried the apple sweet potato one out of curiosity and it was actually REALLY good! I also loved the texture of the apple sweet potato and apple one, had a applesauce texture, not too creamy. We kept them all in the fridge, so it was a nice cool snack, on a hot day.

We def will be buying the food pouches again! My daughter gets bored of the same snacks sometimes, this will be a great change up and a healthy one for on the go too! :D

Thanks Cafemom and Target Up & Up!

we have fruits and veggies ready and prepped beforehand and try to make snack time the same time everyday

I try to keep veggies & fruits cut up and easy to grab & go. I also like cheese cubes & sticks.

when they were hungry i just gave them some fruit, crackers, or cheese or whatever we had, now they are older and can just go get whatever they want

Snacks time is like this, pick a drink, pick a snack and that's that! LOL

I love the Up and Up brand!

Sounds like another awesome influencer! My youngest son is 5 and he likes raisins or cheese and breadsticks or chex mix or cereal for a snack. We have snack sized bags and I package up snacks in serving sizes to make it easier.
