I’ve enjoyed working with Baby Gourmet in the past and was excited for their new line and brand called Slammers Snacks by Kids Gourmet. In our house we have an 8 year old, a 5 year old and a 16 month old. The 16 month old loves the Baby Gourmet meals but my older two are feeling too old for those, so the Slammers Snacks are perfect for them. The baby has enjoyed them too.
Just like Baby Gourmet, Slammers Snacks are made with organic fruits and veggies. They can be found at Loblaws, Real Canadian Superstore, and Well.ca (as well as Targey and Safeway) and come in the following four flavours:
*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, mangoes, ancient grains, butternut squash, cinnamon
For our review we received EPIC and CHILL’N. We spend 6 hours a week at the dance studio, two 3 hour days. I find those three hours get long and my kids need a healthy snack to boost their energy to last the rest of the time dancing. These on-the-go pouches are PERFECT for my kids. They pack well in their dance bags and they are easy to open, drink quickly and taste great. My kids ask for them every day, not only dance days. I also love that each pack comes with the nutritional information so I know how many carbs our T1D child has eaten, so we can give her insulin to cover it if needed.
Our baby also has enjoyed these snacks. It’s easy for him to eat out of and it was mess free.
YES, I recommend these to any family. They are a great, on-the-go healthy snack for your children. A PLUS is it’s a Canadian company and we love supporting Canadian made products.
