Parents know what kids are looking forward to: being out for summer break before long, afternoons of adventure, and an endless assortment of home-baked cookies and sweets. Although decadent treats and unhealthy foods are okay in moderation, there are options available that are healthier and fun at the same time.
Slammers Snacks are great for those all-day adventures, but even better because there's no crumbs. Slammer Snacks are tasty, superfood greek yogurt snacks designed to fuel kids with organic fruits and vegetables. They are a portable, healthy alternative to candy and can be enjoyed frozen, cold, or at room temperature.
T.J. and Azra snacking on Slammers
Each flavor of Slammers organic snacks introduces kids to fruits such as mangos, acai, yumberries, kiwis, and pomegranates, and serves as a great source of essential vitamins. Some of the flavors also come packed with seven grams of protein, perfect for active kids.
Slammers come in four squeezable pouches per box. Some kids balk at fruits and veggies, but the packaging of Slammers is genius enough that kids want to try them. The pouches have kid-friendly designs, with neat graphics on the front and pictures of the fruits and veggies on the back. The way they work is that the caps twist off and the kids eat right out of the pouch. I liken Slammers to having the same consistency of applesauce or pureed food.

We were able to try to flavors of Slammers - Chill'n and Watermelon Kiwi Burst. The latter has added protein. Watermelon Kiwi Burst has six ingredients for a delicious flavor combination. Chill'n includes banana, butternut squash, greek yogurt, blueberries, and yumberry.
All of the ingredients in Slammers come from certified organic farms and contain no added sugar or artificial ingredients. I think Slammers are a clever way to get kids to eat the good stuff.
