1st Birthday Celebration - Dole (review/giveaway)



When you think birthday, you think cake and ice cream right? Junk food, well what about adding some healthy food in there? Fruit? YES! Fruit is sweet, 2 of my kids love it! (Jeffery is a picky eater, I'm still trying to get him to eat more fruit). Dole sent us some Fruit Bowls and I have to say they did not last long in this house!

Jaylin's favorite was the diced peaches...goodness how that child LOVES peaches! If she could, she would eat peaches for breakfast, lunch and dinner! She's my weird child, I used to drain the juice off of them (less messy that way since the kids tend to spill them) but she threw a fit when there was no juice to drink afterwards!!!! When the peaches were gone, she had no problem eating the Diced Pears, Mixed Fruit and Tropical Fruit. The Dole Fruit Bowls were actually one of the first solid food Jaxon had to chew up...and he loved it, his favorite was the cherries in the Mixed Fruit bowls. Jeffery used to like Mandarin Oranges, but he suddenly stopped liking them! Oddball ;)

I think my favorite thing about the Dole Fruit Bowls is the convenience of them, just pull one out, peel off the lid and eat! Perfect for after school snack, or a just because snack :)  I put a few in the diaper bag for when we take long trips, we stop at a rest area and give the kids a healthy snack instead of getting something from the vending machine.

Dole Fruit bowls come in packs of 4 and come in 7 different varieties, Diced Apples, Diced Peaches, Mandarin Oranges, Diced Pears, Pineapple Tidbits, Mixed Fruit, Tropical Fruit.

Dole also sent us (well, the kids) 3 Marty Snack packs, which are little zipper pouches that are perfect for Dole's Fruit Bowls, even has a little key chain hook. Marty is from Madagascar and I LOVE that movie!!!!! He's the zebra, and Jaylin now calls the pouch her "zeba pocket" It's also insulated and washable.


The Giveaway: I get to give 3 lucky readers a Marty Snack Pack and a coupon for a pack of Dole Fruit Bowls.
