My kids love snacking. Typically they are asking for chips and cookies, however now that they’ve tried Slammers, they’re hooked!
Slammers is a quick and healthy way to get organic fruits and vegtables into growing youngsters. Conveniently sold at local Target and Safeway locations, these on the go pouches are the perfect quick snack.
Last week, I was in charge of our Tee Ball after game snack. Typically I like to put some sort of fruit into the kids’ bags to give them a healthy boost, so I decided it was the perfect opportunity for everyone to sample Slammers.
The kids were thrilled about the texture – a smoothie. Who doesn’t want a refreshing smoothie after a baseball game in the hot sun?
Next, they liked the flavor. We sampled the “pumped” variety which contained bananas, pineapple, mangos, grains, butternut squash and cinnamon. Most of the players said they tasted the banana first.
The best part, they loved it. There were a few kids that didn’t want to try them – that always happens with something new. But those who did try it, really seemed to like them. My kiddos downed them in a flash. Even a couple of the younger siblings asked for seconds.
Slammers come in the following varieties:
- EPIC – mangoes, bananas, oranges, carrots, Greek yogurt & real vanilla
- AWESOME – bananas, blueberries, strawberries, beets, acai, amaranth (a highly nutritious gluten-free grain)
- CHILL’N – bananas, blueberries, butternut squash, Greek yogurt & yumberry
- PUMPED – bananas, pineapple, mangos, ancient grains, butternut squash, cinnamon
The ingredients come from certified organic farms, producing the highest quality ingredients without the use of toxic pesticides or fertilizers. These foods are minimally processed without artificial ingredients or preservatives.
Slammers makes it easy for parents to encourage kids to snack healthy without pausing in the fun! I know that I’m hooked. We’ll certainly be purchasing these delicious snacks for lunch and more!
