My son is PAINFULLY THIN. Oh and he is the pickiest of eaters! Suffice it to say we need to create a circus like atmosphere with the promise of lots of time perusing some sort of electronic device in order to get some broccoli down his gullet. So, any time I have even the most remote of opportunities to provide him with nutrition-that I can GET IN HIS BELLY- well I am ALL OVER IT. And I think I have found MY MAGIC BULLET. Ruby Rocket’s has developed the ideal snack for concerned parents (like me) who want to give kids a healthy snack that they will love to eat. My son who is a very picky eater goes through phases of things he loves for a short time then stops eating them. But thankfully when it comes to Ruby Rocket’s my son is like a kid in a candy store- aka he can’t get enough of them!
He is a very active boy who loves bicycling, basketball and softball and he can take his snack and go with him wherever he goes. And I cannot tell a lie–I LOVE them too! they are perfectly delicious minus the guilt factor. Seriously they are heaven on a stick and GOOD FOR YOU- at less than 45 calories and made with real food ingredients like; carrots, beets, strawberries and lemons I often have them for breakfast and feel guilt free giving them to my kids!

And here are 2 Reasons Ruby Rockets is My Healthy Snack of Choice for my Kids and Me
#1 I always keep a stash of Ruby Rocket’s in my freezer as they are our anytime snack. Without fail after school when I pick my kids up they are Starving. The first thing they want to do is hit up a drive thru and get something which will clearly ruin their dinner appetite and is probably not all that healthy. I know they are hungry and I also know they need the extra boost of energy to a0 get started on their homework and b) s so that I don’t have to hear them complain the entire ride home that they are DYING OF STARVATION and I am such a cheap mom that I won’t stop at the local bakery. So having these snacks in the car at all times is a lifesaver- especially for those after school munchies.
#2 They accompany my kids to all their extra-curricular activities .My kids take Ruby Rocket’s with them when they go to ballet, basketball and yes we even bring them with us on our long family bike rides and hikes. My kids are growing- and that means they are ALWAYS HUNGRY, like literally they are always hungry. And while I’d love to have fresh fruit with me at all times which is the gold standard when I can’t Ruby Rocket’s are the best substitute- I always make sure my kids have them in their ballet bags, their basketball and baseball bags and yes when we take family bike rides- they are in our backpacks!
