By Ed Bruske aka The Slow Cook If kids are brining Lunchables to school, you can bet that fruit roll-ups have not gone out of style. What do we think, readers? Is this stuff acceptable? Too much sugar?
Better D.C. School Food is the official blog of Parents for Better D.C. School Food. We advocate replacing highly processed, sugary foods with wholesome, nutritious food in District of Columbia public schools to promote the health and well-being of all children. We partner with the D.C. Farm to School Network to promote the use of sustainably grown local farm goods in school meals.
At least these fruit leathers don't contain cottonseed oil (cotton is not a food) artificial colors or flavors.ReplyDelete
BUT, they are a solid sugar hit when it comes to to teeth! Please make sure to follow up with a nice glass or water, or your dentist will profit nicely.
Fruit leathers also boost blood sugar higher and faster than real fruit would. The fiber in fruit is the key. Mother Nature really does know what she's doing.....
