We are definitely a family of fruit lovers here, especially my little monster. He’s been known to eat through a box of fruit snacks in a few days flat. I try to buy the fruit leather, which is much healthier, but it can get pricey keeping up with his habit. So I thought I give the homemade kind a try. It’s beyond simple and about as healthy of a snack as it gets.
One thing I’ve discovered in having a boy is that he eats an enormous amount of food throughout the day. He’ll have just finished breakfast 10 minutes before and he’ll be asking for a snack. It’s a little mind blowing that such large quantities of food can fit in that little body. So I am constantly thinking of ways to make his snacking healthier and more varied. One answer…homemade whole wheat cheese crackers.
