Cute Apple Lunch with a Tree Top Apple Sauce Pouch

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tree Top.

Do you like apples? They are one of my all-time favorite fruits! I love fresh apples and apple juice, but my dearest love is apple sauce! My boys also adore apples and apple sauce, so when I was recently offered the chance to try Tree Top‘s new apple sauce pouches, I happily said “yes”.

Though I typically put fresh fruit in my boys lunches, I always keep some fruit pouches in the cupboard for days when I’m in a hurry. I also like to have them on hand so I have a nutritious snack to offer the kids when we are on the go. And Tree Top is a brand I trust — their Organic No-sugar Added Apple Sauce is the apple sauce I normally purchase on my weekly grocery runs.

Tree Top Apple Sauce Pouches come in four very tasty flavors: traditional apple, strawberry-apple, cinnamon-apple and my favorite — mango-apple. I like that they are made with simple ingredients. Everything on the ingredients list is something I consider to be “food” and I was pleased to see that sugar was not listed among the apple and other fruit purees. (There’s vitamin C in there too, but I give that a pass because we take that every day anyway.)

And because I’m a dorky food-art lady, I was excited about the cute packaging. Each pouch shows a piece of fruit skateboarding, swinging, hula-hooping or parachuting. In fact, those pictures inspired me to make an apple-themed lunch for Augie:

I started with an apple-shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I used an apple-shaped pie press to cut and seal the sandwich and I decorated it by cutting the word “apple” along with an apple shape from a piece of fruit leather. (Geez! How many times can a person write the word “apple” in two sentences??)  I filled the remaining two sections of the lunch box with mixed pretzels and cheese crackers and cucumbers cut with an apple cutter. And then I finished things up by adding a Tree Top strawberry apple sauce pouch.

What do you think got eaten first? I’ll give you a clue:
