A company called Fruitful Children has created a Perky Fruit Bodies snack that is similar to fruit roll ups, but with less junk and more health benefits. Choose from Strawberry Banana, Cacao Banana Coconut or Coconut Banana.
Perky Fruit Bodies are 100% all-natural fruit snacks that are gluten-free, raw, organic and non-GMO. They are perfect to take on-the-go, especially for parents who need nutritious snack options for their kids (or themselves!).
Fruitful Children says they created this snack because “unfortunately, the first fruit roll ups many of us tried were filled with corn syrup, artificial colors and flavorings, and the fruit concentrate in them was often cooked at high temperatures destroying some key vitamins and nutrients.”
Perky Fruit Bodies are dehydrated at less than 115 degrees for several hours so the enzymes and nutrients in the fruits and superfoods can stay “alive” and maintain their nutritional values. The company says their snack is naturally lower on the glycemic index than nearly every other fruit snack currently available and provides steady energy rather than a sugar spike and crash.
The first three available flavors in the Perky Fruit Bodies product lineup are Cacao Banana (80 calories, 3 grams fiber, 1 gram protein), Strawberry Banana (60 calories, 2 grams of fiber, 1 gram protein), and Coconut Banana (130 calories, 3 grams of fiber, 1 gram protein).
I enjoyed these as a healthier substitute for an old childhood favorite. Perky Fruit Bodies are a good choice for those who are looking for snacks that actually provide some nutrition and are made with natural, organic and gmo-free ingredients.
I hope Fruitful Children considers creating even more fruit flavors. How about raspberry, mango, pear, or apple? There are so many other flavor combinations to explore!
