Sprout Foods, which offers chef-inspired, certified organic foods for children, has announced the launch of Sprout Smash Organic Kids Snack Pouches, its first-ever line of food for school-aged kids. These new organic pureed snacks, created for kids pre-school through elementary school, come in easy-to-squeeze pouches and feature wholesome ingredients.
The Sprout Smash Organic Kids Snack Pouches – in nine Vegetable & Fruit, Greek Yogurt & Superfruit, and Quinoa, Coconut & Fruit flavors – are nutritionally superior to the standard applesauce snacks offered on the market today, officials say. The Sprout Smash snacks are made with real vegetables, fruits and grains, are certified USDA organic and deliver nutrition from whole foods, not artificial fortification. Each four-ounce Sprout Smash snack provides about 20% more product than the pouch-snack competition and comes in a BPA-free, squeezable pouch with a re-sealable cap that makes them great for on-the-go kids, officials add.
“When children reach school age, their days are filled with learning, playing and trying new activities, and it seems like they are always on the move. But most of the grab-as-you-go snack foods available today simply aren’t healthy,” says Geoff Stella, VP of marketing, Sprout Foods. “We’ve created the Sprout Smash snacks with that in mind, to give kids wholesome foods that are full of nutrition and flavor and can be enjoyed whenever, wherever.”
- Vegetable & Fruit flavors that are made from more vegetables than fruit and are nutritious and naturally sweet (Butternut Squash & Grape, Pumpkin & Strawberry, Carrot & Orange);
- Greek Yogurt & Superfruit flavors packed with protein from the non-fat Greek Yogurt and high-antioxidants from the fruit blends (Strawberry & Cherry, Acai & Raspberry, Blueberry & Blackcurrant); and
- Quinoa, Coconut & Fruit flavors made with nutritious quinoa and coconut milk for a quick, light morning meal or tafter-school or after-sports snack (Cherry & Apple, Peach & Banana, Banana & Berry).
The Sprout Smash Organic Kids Snack Pouches will be available in the applesauce section of national grocers in August.
