Del Monte recently launched Fruit Burst Squeezers, which are delicious, nutritious, fun, on-the-go snacks.Del Monte’s Garden Quality fruits and vegetables are a perfect addition to any lunchbox or for tossing into your purse as a portable snack.

As a mom, I’m always trying to pack healthy and nutritious foods in my daughter’s lunch box, while also making sure she likes what I’m packing because healthy food is not good if kids won’t eat it.

Del Monte Fruit Burst Squeezers I like that the Del Monte Fruit Burst Squeezers offers the goodness of 1 ½ servings of fruits and vegetables, there’s no high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors, they’re an excellent source of Vitamin C, and are gluten-free. They’re nice and fruity-tasting so kids love them, and moms can feel good about them, a win-win. The Fruit & Veggies Squeezers are available in Blueberry, Apple Cinnamon, and Peach Mango. The Fruit-Only Squeezers are available in Mixed Berry and Strawberry. Del Monte Fruit Burst Squeezers Del Monte also has a wide array of plastic fruit cups, including Pineapple Coconut. Both my daughter and I love the taste and they fit right into her lunch box containers.

  1. No kids here but I do have one nieces, one great-niece, and two great-nephews. The three greats like the squeeze and the one niece likes the spoon.

  2. The kids in my life prefer to “squeeze” as life is so busy especially during the school year that squeezing while on the go is almost a given.

  3. My son has always enjoyed his snacks using a spoon but, I’m willing to give DelMonte squeezers a try. Who knows, he might like it.

  4. My daughter likes squeeze & my son likes spoonin’ it & momma loves the healthy choices your brand offers :-)

  5. it totally depends on the day! When I think, grab a squeeze pouch, it’s easiest, that’s for sure the time they’ll pick a spoon and a cup and settle in!

  6. They definitely prefer squeezies! Which baffles me completely since I will always choose a spoon over a pouch.

  7. Baby definitely loves the squeeze so he can feed himself. 7 yr old also loves the squeeze kind now-blueberry is the favorite!

  8. At this point, I would say mine prefers a spoon, but I have a question that hopefully someone can answer.

    My daughter is starting Kindergarten this year. Is this product something that she could open by herself without assistance? She has good motor skills, but cannot open something like a sealed bottle of water for the first time. Do you think she could open these?

  9. My lil miss will eat fruit however I give it to her: whole, spoon, or squeeze! But pretty sure she enjoys the novelty of squeezing it out of the pouch the most!

  10. As an avid bicycle rider, my husband loves to throw these portable snacks in a pouch for a quick energy boost on a long ride

  11. We pretty much always spoon!..thanks Del Monte and the hosts for this great giveaway..and, for easy snack time that is delish too.

  12. Two of my kids love to squeeze, the other likes to spoon so I try to keep some of each on hand for lunches.

  13. My kids are grown now, but I would have loved those fruit squeezers for them when they were little. Thank you!

  14. My kid like the spoon and squeeze. But I believe she really prefers the squeeze since she can run around and still enjoy.

  15. My son is grown and has kids of his own. When I serve my grandkids fruits and vegetables they like the spoon but I can’t wait to try the squeeze!

  16. I consider myself a big kid, and I have to say that I do prefer to squeeze. So much easier, more convenient, and less messy on the run!

  17. ohhhh…my child def. prefers to squeeze! they get so busy as they get older and I love the pouches for a quick , easy, no mess snack!

  18. My kids and grandkids like to squeeze and it’s so much neater. I’m going to get some of the pineapple coconut. They sound really good.

  19. My older kid prefer the spoon and my younger one love the squeezer! Can’t want to try all the different flavors. :)

  20. We have only done the spoon. I think I have to give the squeeze a shot because they just may like it better!! thanks

  21. One likes a spoon and the other likes to squeeze! They’re both still young though so either way, we make just a little bit of a mess. :)

  22. My son prefers his hands, but we’re starting to use a spoon more and I hope squeezing will follow someday. :)

  23. My kids haven’t squeezed, but I’m guessing they would like it because it seems fun, you don’t need utensils, and it’s easy. They like to spoon, but I bet they would love to squeeze.

  24. Mmmm we love a spoon and a cold cup of Del Monte fruit straight from the fridge! They’re fresh and delicious just like the day they were picked. After we eat the yummy juicy fruit we love to drink the juice, every drop. Yum! I get hungry just thinking about it :)

  25. My boys really like the squeezes, I do too, less mess, but I also like them cause it’s a fun snack, expecially since 2 of us are gluten and soy free. Finding a fun snack that doesn’t have those two things is a challenge. So these help us so much!!

  26. I’d have to say spoon, because they’re both teenagers, and I can’t imagine having their fellow junior high students see them with squeezable fruit would be a good thing.

  27. My daughter loves to spoon which helps develop her eye-hand coordination :) Although squeezing may be less messy.

  28. My daughter loves to squeeze. I freeze the pouches and since our weather is very hot, they defrost by lunch time.

  29. Both my kids love their “squeezies”. . . my 1 year old in particular. In fact, I packed about a dozen of these for our family trip in Italy, and they were fantastic on the plane, and as snacks in-country. I don’t normally buy things that are “premade”/”prepackaged”, but these have been worth it.

  30. Squeeze! My son is only one, but man does he love those pouches. I actually buy the Del Monte ones because they are way more affordable than the ones branded towards babies!

  31. To squuze or not to squeeze? As an adult,,with two grown sons,,,,I personally like the idea of both at the same time. Especially during the hot summer months,,,sometimes a little fruit goes a lot further than a heavy Sammy!

  32. My kids are grown, but they still love the fruit cups. However, I bet the grandkids will love the squeezable!
