Battling sugary snacks is an ongoing challenge with the constant exposure to candy advertisements and displays everywhere we go! My daughter finally agrees that “candy makes me sick.” Winning!

So, that being said, I also don’t want to be the Food-Nazi-Mom that doesn’t let my kids have anything sweet. I decided to make some “candy” for them that has no artificial additives and is full of vitamins and minerals. Real fruit snacks! Have fun with this recipe and chose fruit with a unique shape or color!

Real Fruit Snacks

Ingredients:

  • 6 kiwi fruit

  • Dehydrate in a dehydrator on the fruit setting until leathery in a dehydrator, or in a low-heat setting in the oven. I dried mine in my dehydrator at 135* for about 5 hours. The lower heat you use, the more nutrients that remain intact.
