Having kids is one of the best things in my life. As they learn and grow, I learn and grow with them. They push me to see things or do things that I wouldn’t have normally done, and vice versa. As my oldest daughter recently hit her tweens, I have seen a whole other world come to life through her eyes and all of the possibilities to come. Her creativity, expressiveness and authenticity always blows me away and I love that she has learned how to express herself in a unique way and loves it. She is dedicated in sports, music, academics, culinary arts and more, all the while making them her own. Because she loves freedom of expression, I know that she loves unique things just like her. So when we were asked to try Fruitocracy and share our experience (all opinions are our own) I knew that she was going to be thrilled. The new Fruitocracy from Dole, are fruit pouches packed with all the good things that I want my kids to have. In this new inspiring snack, Fruitocracy is packed with all of the real fruit that she loves, and is free of high fructose corn syrup as well as being non-GMO. This all natural fruit pouch gives her a good treat with still showing her unique personal style.
She loves taking these pouches with her everywhere…to school, sports, when she is playing, on the road and more. Fruitocracy comes in six delicious flavors, Apple Banana, Apple Mixed Berry, Apple Pineapple, Apple Strawberry, Apple Cherry or good ol’ Apple and she loves them all. Her favorite is Apple Mixed Berry and Apple Banana. I love getting these for her (and of course my other kids love them as well), because they are for her and let her have a snack that not only looks unique like her, but also tastes good, so she wants to eat them.
Because it is important to encourage our kids creativity, you want to do everything can to help them. Here are 5 ways to encourage your kids creativity:
- Provide them with a variety of art supplies so they can create and design things on their own
- Allow time for unstructured imaginative play so they can come up with and execute their own ideas
- Encourage the to read for pleasure and participate in plays
- Enroll them in sports or dance, trying many different things until they find something they love
- Teach them music and sign them up for lessons on at least one instrument
These are just a few things to get you started. Kids, Tweens and Teens are amazing and smart. It is great to start at a young age and encourage their creativity so they can grow and learn. Always have good snacks for them (we love the Fruitocracy fruit pouches because of their all-natural contents and unique designs). Be supporting and understand and let them figure things out without being overbearing and pushy. It is hard to take a step back, but worth it when you see them fly.
