If it is natural fruit, like an apple, banana or grapes then no I don't think of it as fruit. Processed fruit is candy to me.

No, but I do eat fruit gummy vitamins, probiotics, calcium, and fiber. They do have some calories so I use them like a snack.

I can do this!

If dried and covered with stuff, yes, I'd consider it candy...........but I hate stuff like that wouldn't eat it, ever. Can't stand gummi stuff, either, and neither did my kids.

Plan for tomorrow, but enjoy the heck out of today.

I would read the label. If it was dried fruit without a lot of stuff added,I would say no. If it isn't dried fruit but just sugar gelatin and fruit flavor then yes

Did you accidentally click on the wrong question? "Yogurt and blueberries" doesn't make any sense here.

yogurt with blueberries

Proverbs 3:5-6

YES. It might have some juice in it but let's read the label, and look at the ingredients. Highly refined sugar, high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors (propylene glycol in some-which is the base ingredient in anti-freeze), and artificial colors, which can cause or exacerbate behavioral issues in children. It is very little bit real food and very much a food product. The refined sugars foster cravings for other not-so-good-for-us foods.

You want fruit snacks, get dried fruit or fresh fruit. It is so much better for you.

This is not to sound hypocritical or anything. I used to buy that crap for my kids, thinking it was not a bad choice, but...I think that may be one of the reasons I have had a hard time getting her to eat real fruit. She's slowly but surely coming to terms with Mommy's resistance to getting processed foods. She actually ate a small Granny Smith apple yesterday. She hadn't eaten apples without peanut butter for a couple years.
