Gummies, what kid doesn’t love gummies? But what mom really likes the ingredients that are in them? Not me. They are now upping their marketing and saying they come with 1-2 servings of fruit and vegetables. How I’ll never know since they don’t use actual fruit or vegetables, that are not processed to the nines.
I totally understand. As a busy mom, it is so easy to grab these as a quick pre-packaged snack and throw it into their lunches daily. But what is it really doing for them other than loading them up on sugar, causing them to be hyper, followed by a terrible moody crash? Nothing really.
What if I could tell you that you could make them yourself, in 12 minutes? It seriously takes longer to go to the grocery store and get them. Mind you they have to cool for 2 hours but you can be doing your own thing during that time.
