Sampling Nim’s Fruit Crisps

We were sent a selection of Nim’s Fruit Crisps a healthy snack ideal for everyone in the family.  They retail at £1.10 a pack but are a great way to boost the amount of fruit you eat in a day in a more novel and intriguing way.  The crispy texture might appeal to your child in a way your average piece of fruit might not.  My two are happy to eat fruit however it comes but they saw these as more of a treat.  It made a good alternative too something chocolaty after dinner!

They are healthy as they are just dried, not fried and nothing unnecessary added (like extra sugar).  By being air-dried they maintain their flavour and nutritional content using 100% of the fruit, meaning they are high in fibre and Vitamin C.  As you can see from the picture they still look amazing after going through this process and each pack is one of your 5 a day!

They have an appetising range including apple, pear & kiwi, orange & melon and pineapple & mango.  I also shared some with a couple of my adult friends; one in particular really enjoyed munching through them.

I think if your in a rush and want something that bit more wholesome on the go its easy to grab a few packets of Nim’s crisps rather than prepare fruit.  Nim’s are multi-award winning so well worth a try if you have not experienced them yet.  I would certainly buy some next time, although I would use them more as a snack on the go rather than to replace eating fruit at home, they are perfect for picnics when your fruit gets bruised and squashed when you go any distance.

You can tweet @nimsfruitcrisps and let them know why you would make a Great Nim’s taster using the hashtag #Nimster.
