Robinsons Fruit Shoot Fruit Bars – A New Fruity Snack For Lunch Boxes

Although Caitlin and Ieuan have school dinners, this hasn’t freed me from the ongoing challenge of finding snacks which aren’t blue, chemical laden or guaranteed to rot their teeth on contact – and that includes many children’s snack bars which are laden with sugar.

Ieuan is constantly campaigning to take a packed lunch to school.  He has improved slightly in that his sandwich repertoire now extends to ham and chicken as well as peanut butter, but we’ve explained that this doesn’t mean the rest of his lunchbox can be filled with crisps and chocolate.

He’s not impressed with what would be left – just a sandwich and a piece of fruit, but there is a new snack choice that would make his daily lunchbox more appealing.

Caitlin and Ieuan both grew up with Robinsons Squash and Fruit Shoot drinks and were intrigued to discover that there are now Fruit Shoot Fruit Bars.

Caitlin tried the Apple & Blackcurrant Bar Fruit, whilst Ieuan had the Summer Fruits Fruit Bar.  Both are packed with over 99% fruit and are high in fibre.  The bars are also free from added sugar, artificial flavours, colours or sweeteners and count as one of your ‘five a day’.

The bars have quite a dense texture from the fibre and added fruit and are satisfyingly moist and sweet. They are ideal for adding to a lunchbox as they are school compliant, or a kit bag for an after sports snack.

Robinsons Fruit Shoot Bars are available in five flavours; Apple, Apple & Blackcurrant, Summer Fruits, Peach & Mango and Tropical Fruit.

You buy them in a pack of five and it’s good to know that Fruit Shoot Bars have been certified by Sugar Wise and every bar counts as a serving of fruit. That’s good news for children’s snack bars.

The Fruit Shoot Fruit bars are suitable for vegetarians, vegans and those on a gluten-free diet and will be available in Tesco stores and online from Amazon (RRP: 5 x 25g for £2.29).

We loved these and it’s good to know there’s another snack option when I’m pushed for time in the morning on the school run.

Ieuan claims he can make his own sandwiches but since currently the ratio of butter to bread is 3:1, I think we have a little further to go.

    It’s good to see these are free from artificial sweeteners and sugars because their drinks are full of it, they sound like a good lunch box or post-school snack

    I didn’t know they have developed fruit bars as well. Having no added sugar is really important, children eat way too much sugar that they should these days! They also sound delicious!

    They sound like a good healthy alternative of many sugar packed bars. Robinson juices are packed with sugar normally.
