Yu! Healthy snacks: review and giveaway

Monkey loves his oaty cereal bars, fruit and yogurt so when Yu! Healthy Snacks sent us some goodies to try I knew there would be a scramble at snack time!

Yu! Healthy SnacksYu! snacks are a range of healthy snacks which are made from 100% real fruit. They are, great for lunch boxes or just as a snack between meals.

As you can see from the photo above, Yu! offer a range of Fruit Chews, Yogurt Coated Fruit Pieces and Yu! Bars.
Monkey and Daddy P decided to ‘share’ a Yu! Fruit BarStrawberry in this case.  Other flavours include Wild Berry, Apricot and Cherry.  The Yu! Fruit Bar is guaranteed to contain 40% fruit within a cereal bar which is then coated in yogurt.

Daddy P only got a very small bite, Monkey was not for sharing after all!.  He thoroughly enjoyed this fruit bar.  The only way I could see myself getting a look in with the Wild Berry fruit bar was to eat in when Monkey was at Nursery School and Daddy P was at work!  I really liked it, not too sweet and very more-ish.

Next up to try was a pack of Yu! Mango Fruit Chews – 100% fruit, less than 90 calories, fat-free and with no added sugar.  I was interested to see what Monkey would think of this flavour (he picked it) as he doesn’t normally like Mango!  Well they were in the bowl one minute and gone the next!  Would be great in a snack or lunch box.  Other flavours currently available include Blueberry, Blackcurrant, Cherry and Strawberry.

Yu! Healthy SnacksLast up – the Yogurt-coated fruit pieces and the Yogurt-coated Granola and fruit pieces.  Both options contain real fruit and real yogurt.

Monkey opted for Blackcurrant pieces in yogurt coating and I decided on the Granola & Strawberry in yogurt coating.  We were both rather pleased with our selection, neither lasted very long!

Yu Healthy SnacksAgain, these would be great in a school lunchbox and I can definately see me buying the range for us all to enjoy.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school.We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds.We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. Pears and figs. 🙂
    We’re big fans of Yu here, I often buy the fruit drops for Eddie, they are convenient to carry around and eat on the go.

    1. Love figs – yum, we’ve only just discovered Yu! I love the fruit bars, and yes I agree the fruit chew are great to just have in your bag. Off to LOndon tomorrow and they’ll definately be coming with us for a snack on the go

  2. I love banana, but my husband has an aversion to it (bordering on a phobia!) so we can’t have them in the house. 🙁

  3. Pomegrate seeds, hate the faff of doing extracting the seeds from the fruit but love it when you can buy them already prepped

  4. oh I hate this question! Strawberries, mango, comice pear…but given the season a juicy Victoria plum is hard to beat

  5. At the moment its water melon – I bought 1 the other day as they were on special offer and there lovely! they are so big its provided me with a piece of fruit every day and really juicy – Im glad i tried it and will be picking one up again.

  6. I love most fruits, but especially the summer berries and cherries. Fresh figs are a favourite as well, so much nicer than the dried, sweetened ones that appear around ?Christmas time.

I'd love to hear from you and try to reply to all comments
