Spring Break With Good On-the-Go Foods

March 20, 2012 - Selah, WA

Spring break means "Road Trip" for many families. Eating healthy can be difficult when you're traveling, and convenience without the mess is usually the goal. Convenient food doesn't mean you have to compromise on nutrition. Tree Top has compiled a list of alternatives to high calorie, fatty snacks that will keep you and your family eating well, no matter how far you are from home.

"When packing for road trips, remember to keep the food simple. While fresh fruits and veggies are preferred, sometimes they just aren't practical when traveling. Pre-packaged fruit-based products, like many of Tree Top's offerings, boast nutritional benefits and offer a full fruit serving that will keep you and your family happy and sated," said Sharon Miracle, corporate communications director for Tree Top.

Tree Top Natural or Organic Apple Sauce
Packaged in individual 4-ounce cups and made with 100 percent USA apples, Tree Top's Apple Sauce has no sugar added, a mere 50 calories per serving and 100 percent of the daily recommended vitamin C. You'll also find cups of naturally sweetened cinnamon and strawberry flavored Tree Top apple sauces. Frozen apple sauce offers a healthier and much less messy alternative to sugar-packed, flavored frozen treats.

Tree Top 100% Apple Juice
Conveniently packaged in 6.75-ounce individual boxes, Tree Top's Apple Juice made from 100 percent USA apples from their growers' local orchards provides one fruit serving and 100 percent of the daily recommended value for vitamin C. The only sugar you'll find in Tree Top apple juice is naturally derived from the same apples that provide its phytonutrients. Tree Top also offers 100 percent juice in a variety of flavors in easy-to-pack, single-serving juice boxes.

Tree Top All Natural Fruit Snacks
What child doesn't love a fun snack occasionally? Tree Top's All Natural Fruit Snacks are a fun snack made with all natural ingredients, including real fruit juice, and enriched with the goodness of vitamin C.
