Today’s “Shelvic Exam”?

MaterneĀ GoGo squeeZ,Ā is aĀ “no spoon, no mess”, all natural 100% fruit squeezableĀ applesauce. Each 3.2 ounce resealable pouch containsĀ a handy straw for maximumĀ slurpageĀ andĀ delivers theĀ equivalent of one fruit serving without added sugar. GoGo squeeZ comes in-five varieties: apple, apple-banana, apple-cinnamon, apple-peach and apple-strawberry.Ā 

The Materne company is the most popular applesauce company in France and boasts moreĀ than 1 billion pouches consumed to date.Ā GoGo squeeZā€™s can be found in more than 2,000 supermarkets andĀ retailers across the US. It is also available through amazon and other online retailers.

Nutrition Smackdown?Ā This is a fun and convenient way of getting your kids to eat fruit and is only 60 calories per pouch. I only wishĀ MaterneĀ used their creativity, beyond cool packaging, to find a way to include the peel of the apple which contains much of the vitamin C and fiber found in whole apples.

Cost?Ā I found a range of $0.62 to $0.82 cents per pouch. They come in individual boxesĀ of four and you can find them by the case of 48 units online. I also couldn’t find any information if the packaging is ‘environmetally friendly’ and the cap may beĀ a chokingĀ hazardĀ for the little tikes – be aware.

Taste? Overall, this is a pretty cool product. I asked my daughters, Katie and Madison, what they thought of it…

Guess a picture does say a 1000 words!
