I’m always on the lookout for healthy things for my kids to eat and I found something pretty good. They are called Ruby’s Rockets and they are frozen pops made of vegetables and fruit.
The back story is that a mom was drinking a green smoothie when her 8-year-old daughter, Ruby, asked to try it. The mom said she wouldn’t like it because it was made with spinach, celery and ginger. But Ruby took a sip anyway and said, “You know mom, if you took out the celery and the ginger and added more apples and some banana, you could leave in the spinach and I’d probably like it.”
That’s how Galaxy Green, Rock-It Red and Orbit Orange frozen popsicles were born. I like that the ingredients are wholesome and (importantly here) taste good to my anti-fruit and vegetable kids. Also, they are only 25 calories, which is way better than ice cream, obviously.
Thanks Ruby’s Rockets for sending me boxes to sample.
