Crushed is a small independent company started by two Mums who wanted a nice mess free snack for children that provided around 2 of your recommended 7-A-DAY portions of fruit and vegetables. This is a full 100g pouch which is suitable for age 1+ and ideal for pre-school, infant and junior school children.
Crushed children's fruit snack is in a squeezable packaging that needs no spoon or bowl. It has a long shelf life and doesn't need to be stored in the fridge - although they taste even better chilled. Made entirely from fruit they aren't watered down or full of unnecessary ingredients, so they're suitable for veggies and are nut free.
Available for now in two flavours - Apple & Strawberry and Apple & Banana - they aren't tart or bitter at all like some snacks. I don't know if that is because of the inclusion of Chokeberry (Aronia) in the Strawberry version, but my boys clearly love it.
It's a real treat to have fruit like this for my boys and they begged for them every day until they were all gone. I'm certainly going to be adding them to my shopping list whenever I can get them. As these are a new UK launch they're currently available in Waitrose and will be coming to Ocado very soon. Brilliant for camping, holidays, day trips and lunchboxes, and a real treat, they're a winner here.

And if you ever see these two at an event - go over and chat - they REALLY don't bite!
