Getting vegetables into kids’ lunchboxes just got easier, thanks to Mother Earth’s new snack range. Designed for children’s taste buds, Mother Earth’s Vege Fruit Sticks are available in three variants, each featuring a different vegetable: Beetroot, Apple and Berry; Spinach, Apple, Blueberry and Banana; Carrot, Apple and Orange.

These sticks are made with real vegetable puree, instead of using juice or concentrate, and contain more veges than fruit in the filling, with no artificial colours or flavours. The filling is wrapped in a soft dough and baked, and come in convenient, individually-wrapped portions.

According to Colmar Brunton’s consumer insight, Kiwi kids who sampled it loved its taste. Each pack includes eight bars and sells at an RRP of $3.79.
