Having raised two teens into adulthood and now raising two more, I am well-versed in the variety of ways to empower teen creativity. And what I love most is that the areas in which I can challenge my teens to ‘think outside the box’ is increasing every day. I always love it when I discover a new approach or product to encourage self-expression and confidence in their personal interests.

One of the newest ways that I’ve discovered to help them express their individuality is through their food choices – particularly when it comes to after-school snacks.

Day after day, my teens followed the same routine. When I pick them up from school in the afternoon, both would beg me to stop by the nearest drive-thru on the drive home. Knowing of no other options, I would always oblige. After eating their chosen fast foods, they would feel drained and struggle to get through their homework and other activities for the remainder of the evening.

Each day, I could see it in their faces that they desired something different. Maybe they wanted more freedom of choice for their snacking choices, but it just wasn’t there. Maybe they weren’t quite sure how to express that they wanted something real to eat. Or maybe it was my fault in not seeking out a better, healthier way for them to enjoy a treat after-school or while we are on the go.

Mom’s guilt is a beast. As a result, I decided to make it my mission to help us all feel better each day. After discovering Fruitocracy, I knew that I’d found the perfect solution to our healthy eating woes.

Empower Teen Creativity Through Real (and Healthy) Eating with Fruitocracy

Fruitocracy is a new product from Dole that is all-natural, non-GMO, gluten-free goodness in a squeezable fruit pouch. I love that Fruitocracy is an easy, affordable, non-messy way for my teens and tween to enjoy fruit as soon as they get in the car after school, after their sports practices and games, in the park, or wherever we are. I can keep them stored in the car to have on hand anytime they want one. Plus, with all-natural fruit and no high-fructose corn syrup or refined sugar, I feel more at-ease knowing that they are eating something healthy.

My teens and tween love that Fruitocracy comes in six different fruit varieties. That means that they can go beyond ‘sticking with the usual’ when it comes to snacking. They can switch it up and choose the fruit variety that best expresses their unique mood or particular tastes that day. They can even experience two different varieties at the same time. The creative possibilities are endless!
