My kids LOVE fruit snacks, so I decided to give some homemade fruit snacks a try. When I hear the word 'homemade' I automatically think it is going to be really hard, especially with things like finding a healthy fruit snacks recipe, I couldn't have been more wrong. This was super easy and has become part of my weekly routine, I make a double batch and put them in containers for the kids to snack on all week.
