Crushed UK

Crushed was developed by 2 busy mumpreneurs, Deborah & Jenny – who from experience noticed a lack of healthy snack alternatives available for the older child? Not only wanting to provide their own children, but also to fill this hole in the market they started researching and trialling snack alternatives aimed at primary school children and beyond.

Cuk ruby 7They have just launched their new fruit snack onto the market.  Designed for children 7-11+ (though can be enjoyed at any age), the pouch design allows this snack to be easy, funny and yet ultimately healthy. They currently have 2 flavours available, Apple and Strawberry or Apple and Banana. Both varieties are low in calories, have no added sugar, only a trace of fat, no dairy, no nuts and as they are 100% fruit they are also suitable for vegetarians.

These new little pouches are perfect for popping in lunch boxes or grabbing on the go. They can be found in Waitrose in the healthy snacking aisle near raisins etc. and now they are available on-line from Ocado. Crushed Box & pouchCrushed has a good shelf life so can be easily stored and even frozen and from the end of June 2014 they will also be available at major airport and train stations in WHSmith Travel.

We trialled them ourselves and this West Berkshire Household gives them a big thumbs up! My eldest two (currently 5 and 8) thought they were fabulous and my daughter now takes one most days to school as her morning snack. This has made this mummy very happy as it was a daily battle to balance the healthy option and my child’s desire to be accepted be the playground cool squad. These funky little pouches tick all our boxes, as they say, “Squeeze your way to 5 a day”.
