Veggies just got a lot tastier!

Do you sometimes find it hard to get veggies into your child's lunchbox?

My son (7) seemed to like the Spinach, Apple, Blueberry & Banana the best. I have asked him if he wants me to buy them and he does. We have told a lot of friends about them that said they would look at them as well. Thanks for Choosing us to trial them was great and my son loves trying new things

Thanks for choosing my kids to review the Mother Earth Vege Fruit Sticks and being so generous with gifting us with some.

The packaging is well presented and easy to see what the flavour of the Fruit Sticks are. My three kids tried these with my 2 year old the biggest fan out of my three kiddies (my other kids are aged 5 and 9). All kids enjoyed the bars though and it didn't seem like they had a stand out Fruit Stick as all got devoured without any complaints. These Fruit Sticks were perfect for the kids for a snack and in their lunch boxes. Each box had a good amount of bars in them (8) that were individually wrapped. It's great that they have the veges in them. I would recommend them and purchase them knowing that they will be well received by my children. Thanks again.

I was a little concerned when the package arrived as it had suffered some damage, but the contents were all intact and fine.
Initially my girl was hesitant to try them thinking they would taste odd because of the vegetable content but that has proven to not be the case. All three flavours have been tried and rated.
The beetroot is the stand out favourite, she says - and I agree that it has a sweet taste of berries and is enjoyable to eat.
The spinach ones are great too, I was interested to note no taste or hint of the banana in this one as neither of us are banana fans, so this is a great way to get both spinach and banana into kids and adults alike.
Our least favourite was the carrot. We both found it has a bit of an odd aftertaste for us.
All in all though we have totally enjoyed trialing these bars, we really appreciate the opportunity and I have told several friends to add them to their shopping lists. We will be purchasing the beetroot and spinach flavours on an ongoing basis.
Alicejones - 12:09 PM on Thu-2-Mar-2017 reply | message
Thanks for Choosing us. My son has so far had the Beetroot, apple and berry - which we was disappointed he could not taste the beetroot ( Yes he loves beetroot) also the carrot, Apple and orange which he quite likes, Yummy he said. Have told our friends about the trial and posted on Facebook and share the link about the bars on Facebook

Thanks for choosing my family to trial the new vege sticks.
My kids liked them all but there favourite was the carrot, apple & orange. They have since told me I have to keep buying that flavour. Such a good idea to help get in extra veges. Thanks heaps

Thanks for choosing our family to trial your vege sticks! My 4 year old told me she thought they were "yum mummy" and had a massive preference for the beetroot, apple and berry flavor. That was the first box to disappear! The biggest fan is our smallest member at only 10 months old! There was no way his sister could have one and not him, so he got to sample one too! He is able to effortlessly hold the sticks and gum them down with ease! They are an excellent addition to the kids lunch boxes and I have added these to the shopping list! Thanks again.
2ndtimeround - 3:51 PM on Sun-26-Feb-2017 reply | message
Wow! What a real treat!! Thanks firstly for the generous amount of samples to try. There were heaps of each type to try. So very impressed with the amount that you sent for us to sample. I have in the past bought the fruit sticks and felt that they were a good healthy snack for the three kids. But now that we have had these, i definately will change to these instead. All three flavours were very well received by the children. My 2yr old just gulped them down, so I dont think that she had a favourite, she ate all the types. The two older boys Mr 9 and Mr 7 really liked the beetroot, apple and berry ones, but found it hard to pick a favourite, so guess they liked them all too. Not much help there, with flavour. But you know you are on a winner when they will eat veges that quick and not moan about it!! I particularly liked the spinach, apple, blueberry and banana ones. I loved the idea of eating spinach and not noticing it too much. They were great to have on the run as a snack and going into the lunchboxes as a healthy alternative. Good work on making them. Now all we need to do is work on the packaging. My school and kindys are both "Litterless lunches" so that means no packaging, so I have to take everything out of the packages and warpers. If only some one would invent a way to keep food fresh and not have it stored in for thought. Thanks again for choosing us to trial this, it was a real winner, and I will buy it.

Thanks so much for selecting our family for this product trial! A very generous box of Mother Earth Vege Fruit Sticks arrived while the kids were at school and preschool, so I had to do a taste test myself ;)<br>Theres no doubting that they taste delicious! They were a total hit with the older kids who were pleased to have a treat in their lunch boxes for the week. In saying that, reading the ingredients list, I would only use them as a treat. Sugar listed 6 different ways, and a whole teaspoon of sugars in each little bar. I was hoping for more of the veggie component, but I guess it has to be sweetened to be more palatable and attractive for the kids. Definitely a better option than similar fruit only bars out there, but still a treat food only. Despite the sugar content, my 3 year old still wouldn't touch them, but I wouldn't use that as a gauge of the product as that child can sniff a vege out anywhere I swear!! <br>The box was huge compared to the product inside, which was a bit wasteful, but the packaging itself was appealing with the cute little bug characters. It had a very fresh and natural vibe with the green packaging and images of whole fruit and vege. <br>The Spinach, Apple, Blueberry and Banana were the most popular flavour here.

Thank you for choosing us to review these yummy vegetables sticks. My son opened the box on the doorstep and saw the packaging and informed me he didn't like vegetables. I put one in his lunchbox each day for the week and I only got empty packaging in his lunchbox. I asked him at the end of the week if he the 'new' sticks in his lunchbox and was told they're very yummy and can I keep buying them. They're definitely a winner here as long as Mr6 doesn't see the box hehe
sarahb - 8:01 PM on Mon-20-Feb-2017 reply | message
These were so good! My kids often have the fruit sticks so I was keen to see if they would notice that these had added veges in them. Each child had their flavour preference and they have all been eaten so safe to say that they liked them! Mr 5 is pretty fussy but he ate the apple, blueberry banana and spinach ones and didn't even realise they weren't his usual blueberry! I tried a bite of each one and thought they were all nice but the orange carrot apple flavour had the most 'vege' taste out of them all, Miss 8 was more than happy to eat them though. Will definitely buy these over the straight fruit ones from now on, anyway to get extra veges into them is a bonus! Thanks so much for the opportunity to try these, much, much appreciated! πŸ˜ƒ
hellsbelle - 3:36 PM on Sat-18-Feb-2017 reply | message
Well, these were fantastic. I had already been buying the regular fruit sticks so looked forward to giving these a go.
They were well recieved by both (7&8) with spinach, apple, blueberry, banana scoring first equal with beetroot, apple, berry. Carrot, apple, orange definitely had flavour which took a bit more getting used to but they came home with empty wrappers so they still got gobbled.
I like that they are small, so great for a wee sweet snack and 8 in the box means they last a bit longer also.
As many have already commented on, my 7 year old also found them difficult to open even with the serrated ends being utilized - perhaps a thinner plastic is needed?
Over all a fantastic result, I will be looking out for these next shop.
Krys5 - 3:14 PM on Sat-18-Feb-2017 reply | message
Thank you for given the opportunity to review this product all 4 of my kids loved them their favorite was the spinach and beetroot one they found the carrot to be a bit to sweet they got the big thumbs up from fussy miss 5 great for their lunch boxes, Mr 8 says these are yum yum can't even taste the vegetables in them mum, I like, miss 4 loved them all and miss 2 kept asking for more. I found them a good pick me up snack being pregnant my favorite was the beetroot, carrot was a bit too sweet for me. Thanks again for the chance πŸ’™
Kazzam - 8:12 PM on Fri-17-Feb-2017 reply | message
Thanks for choosing us to review these products. Mr 5 struggled opening them would be handy to have a coloured green lift print at an easy to open end maybe. He liked all the flavours although wasn't as keen on the carrot one. I like the size good snack size and awesome with 8 in a box nearly enough for 2 weeks of school which is great and so handy. All up a thumbs up here.

I was sooo excited to try these. I have two sons with autism and my youngest (5) is a picky eater. However he loves Mother Earth fruit sticks. Will eat them every day. So when I saw the vege ones I got so so happy! Is this a way to get veges into him? The packet shows just over a teaspoon of sugar which isn't tooooo bad, I love the fact that they use vege purΓ©e not vege juice. That's a big plus. However both my boys didn't like them!!! Sigh. I thought they were fine tasting and will keep getting them to try them and hope they end up liking them. Verdict? Yup try them!!
MartaA - 2:27 PM on Thu-16-Feb-2017 reply | message
What can I say? My 3 year old boy absolutely loves them all!!! Such a fun and easy way to inject some extra veggie goodness into his diet,especially on those days when he decides to be picky. I found the flavour combinations very adventurous and exciting which makes them unique on the market at the moment. Will definitely be buying them for my boy in the future! The only slight criticism would be the amount of sugar as I watch my child's sugar intake very closely. This is the only thing that stops me from using the Vege Fruit Sticks as a daily treat. None the less I highly recommend them!
linkingirl - 2:09 PM on Thu-16-Feb-2017 reply | message
These arrived a few days ago and the kids (8&5) were naturally apprehensive about bars with spinach, carrot and beetroot in them! However I managed to convince them to give them a try and they loved them. The fruit flavours completely outweigh the vege ones, so these are just as yummy as the Mother Earth fruit sticks we usually get.
The packaging is bright and easy to see what they are and what flavour you are getting.
The box is easy to get into but I find the packaging of the individual bars a little tricky for my 5 year old to open himself. I can't seem to give any solutions to this though, as I do believe it is just because they are quite small bars and little fingers haven't quite got the required fine motor skills to open them yet.
These are so easy to just chuck in the lunchbox and as a mum I am happy that these offer a little nutrition packed in a yummy bar that kids love. I will definitely be getting these when I see them in store from now on and would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to get some vegetable goodness into their fussy kids.

Thanks for giving us the chance to try the Mothers Earth Vege fruit sticks. I like how there is 8 bars in the box as lots of other brands of bars only come with 6 in the box so 8 is good. my younger 2 found the rapper hard to take of . Its good that there is no artificial colours or flavours in the bars. We liked the Beetroot and Apple the most The names of them made my lot think that they would not taste that good like spinach and apple my son thought that would not taste that good but he was surprised how good they taste. I would have liked the bars to have had less sugar in them over all we liked them

What a surprise we have just received the Mother Earth Vege Fruit Stick pack this morning 11.30 am. I will make sure I will take the Vege Fruit sticks to school, this afternoon when I collect my 8 year old, as her favourite words are "Did you bring any afternoon tea I am hungry" she will be suprise. My daughter been making her own lunch the past 2 weeks for school and and the novelty this morning was low. Receiving the Mother Earth Fruit Stick packs and being selected as a reviewer thank you very much.
rocholt - 2:42 PM on Sun-12-Feb-2017 reply | message
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to review the Mother Earth Vege Fruit Stick packs. As soon as these arrived (7.30am) the kids were ripping the parcel open so they each had one for breakfast. My 6 year old said they were "delicious" and my 4 year old was too busy scoffing it to comment (so that's a good thing). I was a bit worried they might see the big bright vegetables on the front of the packet and be put off eating them but they didn't seem to notice and they never questioned it. They liked all three flavours and I think it is a fabulous new idea by Mother Earth as my kids will eat carrot, broccoli and cauli but they won't eat spinach or beetroot if put in front of them so to be mixed up with fruit in the form of a bar is a great idea. They think they are having a real treat. Little do they know there is some goodness in there for them. Thanks again - they were a real hit and will definitely be buying more when I see them on the supermarket shelf.

Thank you for the Mother Earth Vege Fruit Stick pack!!! My kids all enjoyed having these in their lunchboxes. These are really tasty. My 10 year old really hates beetroot but absolutely loved the Beetroot, Apple & Berry. The overall favs were the Beetroot one and the Spinach one but the Carrot, Apple & Orange box is empty.

Love the boxes as they stand out. Love that they are made with real vegetables. The kids love the texture and how easy they are to eat.

The wrapping is hard for my 5 year old to open and he's very capable of opening most things. I would suggest having a TEAR HERE on the wrapper.

These are definitely great for lunchboxes as I'm not sure that any teacher would be able to say they aren't healthy.

They are made in New Zealand so that is always a bonus.

Thank you and I will tell other parents about these. Can't wait to see them in the supermarket.

We have 3 boys within this age range (9, 7, 4) all of whom could consume more vegetables in their diet. I would love to add these to their lunchboxes.

I would love to try these. I have two boys aged 8 and 6 and although my youngest is good at eating fruit and veges at home, I find it very tricky to get him to eat them in his lunchbox because he likes them cold. I am looking for healthy alternatives but have found them tricky to find. I would love to give these a go please.
DANICATS940 - 12:44 PM on Wed-1-Feb-2017 reply | message
Would love to give this a try trying to get verges into my girl is a nightmare. I add them to mince and pasta and have started making savoury muffins and scones to try and get more vege intake
tessa771 - 12:39 PM on Wed-1-Feb-2017 reply | message
My older 2 are easy to get Veges in, I put carrot sticks with hummus. Cut up fruit, dried fruit. Savoury muffins. But again I would love to give them something new to try that I knew was going to be good for them but also taste delicious! My 2 1/2 year old is the one who is the main struggle in our house. Would be great to see how these bars go on all 3 kids :)
k1nz - 11:15 AM on Wed-1-Feb-2017 reply | message
At the moment my daughter's loving grated carrot in her sandwiches or wraps. I've tried little baked savoury muffins or scrolls with veges in, but she hasn't been keen on those. She loves the fruit sticks, so it would be great to try her on the vege fruit sticks - if she likes them, I'd certainly chose them over the plain fruit ones to help up her vege intake!
arti - 8:37 AM on Wed-1-Feb-2017 reply | message
The easiest way to fit veggies into my childs diet is either on a sandwich or through baking pastries with them and it mostly works. Would love to see how my child reacts to this.
HandyAnd - 10:18 PM on Tue-31-Jan-2017 reply | message
My six-year-old daughter likes carrots and cherry tomatoes in her lunch box, but the mini-chips and popcorn are usually eaten first. This sounds very interesting. I know that beetroot and carrot juices are yummy, so I'm hoping for great thinge here!
michbooth - 9:49 PM on Tue-31-Jan-2017 reply | message
Wow these sound too good to be true!!! This would make an amazing snack for their lunch boxes, it's so hard getting the good stuff into them sometimes, so it would be nice to have an easy alternative :)

My 3 boys aren't huge fruit and veggie eaters unfortunately so I always put carrot sticks and grapes in their lunches and hope for the best so these bars would be so great to try!

I am lucky and my son and daughter loves their fruit and vegetables. They even eat the broccoli raw when at supermarket walking around. I worry about sugar content in bars because son reacts badly to sugar high. Be interested to see how these works out

I have one daughter who will eat almost anything and my youngest daughter is a little fuss pot when it comes to school lunches. I've tried cherry tomatoes and carrot sticks and they always come home with her. These would be an awesome way to sneak some veges into her lunch, and I bet they would go down a treat ;)
butlerbecks - 5:43 PM on Tue-31-Jan-2017 reply | message
My son loves bars similar to this so I would love him to try these. As per most kids he is pretty hard to get veges into, we do vege sticks that look like chips for dinner. Funnily enough he eats his veges when he is out at other peoples places. What a great product. Look forward to seeing there instore.<br>
bumblebee1988 - 2:23 PM on Mon-30-Jan-2017 reply | message
as much as i hate to admit it, my kids are fussy eaters. this would be a delicious way to help them get more fruits and veges into there diet, i would love to test these out because as a busy mum of 4 sometimes i dont get it right and the kids refuse to eat whats in front of them
hellsbelle - 8:39 PM on Sun-29-Jan-2017 reply | message
One of my boys is a great vegetable eater, loves cherry tomatoes and cucumber and really enjoys his fruit - easy. The other however is quite difficult. Loves guacamole but not in his lunchbox so it is usually boring old carrot sticks that rarely get eaten anyway. ..
Agentsteel - 7:37 PM on Sat-28-Jan-2017 reply | message
My two primary girls like sliced cucumber and cherry tomatoes in their lunchbox. Mini carrots are good if there are no wiggly teeth. Using avacado in chocolate muffins is a little sneaky. Plus 'what now tv show' suggested marmite and lettuce as a sandwich filling so that's helpful too.
kerryn79 - 10:48 AM on Sat-28-Jan-2017 reply | message
Chunks of cucumber and cherry tomatoes are a usually in their lunchboxes, they love the Mother Earth grout bars so it would be great if they also loved these new ones :-)

Godzgirl - 8:59 PM on Fri-27-Jan-2017 reply | message
We will put things like cherry tomatoes or little carrot sticks into the lunch boxes. Some times they find the carrot sticks too hard though, which is where these would be great. We have 3 girls 8,10 and 13. They will sometimes eat a bit of lettuce and tomatoe if I put it with some corn chips or something fun.
rocholt - 8:44 PM on Fri-27-Jan-2017 reply | message
This is a great idea. I find it hard to smuggle vegetables into the kids lunchboxes in fact they very rarely eat vegetables at lunch time. I have tried muffins with spinach which they won't touch. On the odd occasion they will eat carrots though. My kids love the Mother Earth fruit bars. They have one every day in their lunch box so I reckon I could switch the bars over to these vegetable ones and they probably wouldn't know the difference. From looking at the photo on the box they look exactly the same as the fruit bars. This could be perfect way for the kids to eat more veges without even realising!
Heather29 - 8:34 PM on Fri-27-Jan-2017 reply | message
Wow what a great idea - I would love to trial this product please! My 4 year old daughter loves the Mother Earth fruit bars and with her just starting kindy this would be perfect to add in to her lunch box. Normally great with fruit but not so much with veges, I like to think this will be a winner!
emmar2319 - 1:55 PM on Fri-27-Jan-2017 reply | message
I'd love to try these for my almost 5 year old girl who is off to school next month. She's great at eating fruit, but veggies is the problem area! I can only really sneak in grated carrot into pasta/mince dishes, i give her veggies to try every single day but she refuses to even try some veggies :( We have the Mother Earth fruit sticks already which she has 3 times a week, would love to switch these over to the Vege ones. Also my almost 3 year old girl loves the fruit sticks too, but again veg is the issue, she'll only eat sweetcorn. Thank you :)

I sneak extra veggies into muffins and smoothies in my childs lunchbox. She is pretty good at eating fruit and loves lots of vedge just chopped up raw with a little dip.

We currently buy the fruit sticks and they're so great, would love to try the veggie ones, always love the idea of extra goodness for the little one and making it easy to sneak it to them is even better!

I'm so keen to try these! My almost 4 year old loves the fruit bars! He's fussy with vegetables so I add them in by blending them into smoothies and ice blocks, grating or pureeing them into baking or homemade gummy bears or getting out the food processor to make hummus or pesto!
madieddy - 10:10 AM on Mon-23-Jan-2017 reply | message
Currently we buy the fruit ones and they are great and go down like a treat in our house! we really struggle to get veggies into our kids especially our littlie she picks through her food and pulls out the bits she wants to eat! so I attempt to grate veggies and hide them in mince dishes or cut them into fun shapes to encourage them to eat. (not always successful!)

These bars look great, what an interesting idea to add vegetables to the already popular fruit stick range! I dont have any issues getting my 11 year old to eat his vegetables, he loves cucumber in his lunchbox

I stuggle to get my 2 & a half year old to eat vegetables, but he loves pumpkin bread and Heinz Little Kids fruit & veg shredz and he is a big fruit eater these isn't one fruit that Iv offered him that he doesn't like. He also loves the Mother Nature fruit sticks that you can currently buy at the supermarket.

With the coming school opening just around the corner, I have got no problems with integrating vegetables into the lunchbox of my daughter because she eats everything. She likes carrots, cucumber, capsicum and celery. Since she was little I would almost and always give her boiled broccoli every morning. So, there is no problem at all. These fruit sticks would be amazing.
tinaanne - 4:27 PM on Sun-22-Jan-2017 reply | message
I find it difficult to add veges to a lunch box. My son (7) will have lettuce in his sandwiches with avocado or ham. My daughter (4) picks everything out of her sandwiches and prefers to eat just bread and butter!! Even jam or cheese gets left behind <sigh> But I'm guessing she would love these little bars. We have 3 veges with each dinner to fill them up and they eat 1-2 pieces of fruit in lunch boxes which is so much easier.
niknik - 3:57 PM on Sun-22-Jan-2017 reply | message
We love the current mother Earth fruit bars and are a lunch or snack item we all enjoy. The kids love fruit but raw vegetables in there lunch boxes is alot hardersome will eat carrot stick or cucumber. So sneaking in the odd vegetable grated into spag boll has worked for us. It would be interesting to see which children would eat these we have 14yrs, 4yrs and 2, Oh and of cause myself. Getting a extra vegetable into our family diet would be a great bonus

Ooh ooh finally a company has stepped out of the square and come up with a clever design of Veg and Fruits together to create a Bar for kids.. no its not a cop out for parents to get slack and not try to feed their kids with vegetables etc, sometimes it's just hard to get my two to eat vegetables on a very regular basis, they are getting much better as they get older, but at times it is hard. Miss 6 is better than Miss 5 but texture is a BIG thing for her, hopefully once she gets her Tonsils and adenoids out things will improve, as Miss 6 was a bit like that and had her Tonsils and adenoids out and we had a totally different child, more happier and became a better eater.. I would soooo love to review these for lunchbox, snacks when out n about, travelling in the car, Nana's and every opportunity and make them a treat for great behaviour.. also love the flavour combinations, well done Mother Earth think you have just made lots of Kiwi parents life just that bit easier for the hard rough times!!!! Yessssss yessssss yessssss pleaseeee to trial these yummmmy bars
kahlansmum - 8:50 AM on Sun-22-Jan-2017 reply | message
I must admit I'm a little sceptical about the flavour of these.... would be keen for Miss 8 and Mr 3 to try them though - would be a great way to encourage some healthy eating. Getting vegies into the lunchbox can be such a mission - and most often they come back home again (and into the bin when mums not looking). Fruit is easy - vegies not so much!
routtrim - 8:27 AM on Sun-22-Jan-2017 reply | message
I would so love to try these! I have one little 8 year old who is very into healthy eating and won't eat packaged food if he thinks it isn't good for him. And my daughter (10) is the opposite, loves junk and I struggle to find things which she will eat, that ARE good for her! This snack looks like the ideal solution for us. At the moment I give the kids their favourite vegies (cucumber, carrot, peas) as one of their school snack breaks every day, use a partitioned lunchbox to ensure they get 1 fruit, 1 vege, protein, grains and dairy, and bake veges into all my sweet baking (pumpkin, carrot, zucchini etc). But the kids have one "packet lunch day" per week, it would be great to give them a vege choice for that day too!

Um, not a lot. My 7yo likes seaweed, she gets that sometimes. My 4yo still eats baby food pouches with veges in, and get one of those from time to time. Hmm, veges? Nah, I'm struggling too much to just get anything into their lunchboxes so far.

My fussy vegetarian 8 year old daughter would like to try the bars. She takes cucumber and carrots sticks to school. She been a vegetarian since birth and loved all types of vegetables from 6 months and I have photos of my daughter eating broccoli but she will only eat 2 pieces of broccoli these days. My daughter and I look at recipes in books and on the Internet for new ideas for lunch and she try them once and doesn't like them the 2nd time. I just want my daughter lunch to be colourful and different and I will no longer get comments I want something new for lunch but I don't like this and that.

My three year old loves her raw veges so her kindy lunch box usually has a selection of capsicum, carrot, cucumber and cherry tomatoes. It gets a bit trickier in when they are not in season so it would be great to try another vege option.

Finely cut up in a savoury muffin or zucchini slice. I've seen vegetables in muesli bars in other countries and thought it was a brilliant idea, we'll done Mother Earth!

My children's school has just gone zero waste so they now have a bento type box each... they love their lunches since this change has been made... I try and give them an equal balance of fruit and vege that they can eat with their fingers, a treat item and a sandwich or quiche etc filled chocca with hidden veges also. I'd love to try adding these as their "treat" item with that extra hidden veges as well. :D

Would love to try. I put slices of cucumber and carrot sticks in the lunchbox sometimes. Also do wraps with grated carrot, cucumber slices, ham and cheese. Would be great to try something new and different.

Oh wow these look great! We already buy the mother earth fruit sticks...but these look even better!
I try to put a lot of effort into my 4 year old girls kindy lunch box...eating well is important to us!
we pack veges in by sending her quite often with carrot sticks and hummus...she loves this but won't eat the likes of capsicum sticks, so I often make cheese muffins with added capsicum, corgette and onion...she demolishes them! Yay!
Would love to try these vege sticks!
Many thanks

My daughter was really fussy when it came to veges, and wouldn't eat them unless they were in a spaghetti bolognese or something similar as long as they were well cooked and soft so you couldn't feel the texture of them and had to be covered in some kind of sauce. I was getting really frustrated as she loved them when she was a toddler. We decided to create her a vege garden - starting from growing them from seeds, watering, nourishing etc, and she now eats lettuce, tomato, rocket, onion, mushroom, broccoli, cauli, carrots, and so many more!!! She now picks the veges for her lunch box and for dinner. If she's going thru a phase of not eating them in her lunch, I put a small container of ETA Light Mayonnaise in her lunch box, and she dips the veges in it - it works every time!!!!!

My son is rather picky he will eat most fruits but veggies I struggle with he will do carrot sticks with dip so I am hoping to try celery with dip fir a win too. I also grate veggies in mince meatballs and have them cold in his lunch too.

Hi there, So we do the usual vegs things for lunchboxes currently, carrot sticks, cucumber sticks, choped up capsicum and a variety of fruit. Its really hard thou to get them to EAT it. So often it comes home, as they are just board of them I guess. Sometimes a dip of hummus or something like that helps to get them to eat them. So this trial would be GREAT for a change and if they are as healthy as they seem.,,,,,,,well awesome!! Thanks for the opportunity.

My 5 year old is super easy with most foods and loves his fruit and veg. I usually cut up fresh carrots and oranges for his lunch box or add an apple / banana but when he gets a fruit stick or other packaged treat, he loves it. But my 3 year old is a bit more fussy and I'm constantly thinking of new ways to hide fruit and veg in muffins, yoghurt, breads, etc. So I'm always looking for easy treats but making sure they contain healthy ingredients. This would be a great trial to test out.

I wish I could say that my kids were both mega vegie fans and I could just whip up a healthy salad or vegie stick platter for their lunches.....but this would be only in my dreams. We've tried to include a range of vegetables into our kids diets from a very early age, but it hasn't helped much in increasing their enthusiasm over them. It doesn't stop me still trying to find ways to include them into their lunchboxes though. I find, by getting a bit creative, the kids seem to almost forget they're eating vegies and focus on the food creation instead. For example my daughter loves it when I make centipede sandwiches with colourful carrot, capsicum, cucumber and celery legs. Even though it's time consuming to cut the vegies into such tiny slivers, my daughter eats up every single one of the legs. Try giving her vegies sticks on their own though and the lunchbox comes back with them completely untouched!!! So creativity is my key. Butterflies and centipedes and vegie people etc. Supposedly the vegies taste different this way - or so says Master 3 and Miss 6 :-)

I have to hide vegetables as my two kids aged 3 and 5 have a aversion to all. Vegetables (fruits are fine and easy) so we are on a daily challenge with vegetables

I won't lie, it's a struggle to sneak grated carrot into meatloaf or spaghetti bolognaise without one of the kids noticing. I wouldn't dare put salad on their plate. But I have gotten away with a carrot or two in the juicer! We'd love to try the new Mother Earth range of vege fruit sticks! πŸ˜‹

These sound great, I would be very tempted to hide the boxes the first time the kids tried them to get their honest opinion on the taste rather than have them pull faces at the thought of eating veggies before they have even tried them. What a fantastic idea!

Oooh yes please, always looking for new ways to get the kids to eat veges, and these sort of bars are great for the lunches. Would love to try these with my 4 and 5 year old girls. Thanks for the chance.

My daughter will eat most veges but my son is so selective and often I find a lot of the veges put in the rubbish. He loves cucumber and carrot but nothing else and only will eat apple slices so these bars sound like a great way to get him vegetable nutrition, it would put my mind at ease as well, knowing he is getting good nutrition :)

At first I saw this and thought, we won't be needed as we buy these all the time...and THEN! I saw they were new and Vege Fruit Sticks - amazing! I'd love to try these on Master 5 and Master 7 as they are so fussy and when it comes to vegetables.....well....the battle isn't always worth the effort. We'd love to try this in their school lunches and I can be grinning inside when they come home eaten and wanting more!!!

I love this idea!! I have 4 boys, 8, 6, 4, and 3. Mr 8 and ^ are great with veges but the younger 2 are a bit fussier. We make hummus and serve with carrots and celery, or celery boats with peanut butter and raisens, I've tried savoury muffins but they dont go down too well so I will grate zuchinni into a sweeter muffin or carrot, or beetroot sometimes too!

I have a 3, 5 and 8 year old who love museli bars but i try to avoid them as they tend to be so high in sugar. These sound like a great compromise!! My kids love cherry tomatoes, carrot and cucumber sticks with hummus, celery sticks with peanut butter, zucchini fritters, mini corn muffins in their lunch boxes so i guess we do pretty well.

I find grated veges on his sammi works the best. It needs to be quick and easy to eat as he's so busy at lunchtime to spend too much time eating! His other food finds it's way back home again but they make them eat their sandwich before playtime at his school.

Hi. I would love to trial this product! My kids are hard balls when it comes to veges, so I hide them in everything! I make rollups and hide beetroot in with the berries, and carrots in with mashed egg. Avocado and beetroot in thier berry smoothies!! They have no idea! My kids love the fruit sticks and I am sure the vege sticks will be a hit too, therefore would love to try them, and besides its another avenue to sneak in some vege without them knowing! Afterall I can only get away with this while they are young xx

I don't really fit veggies in lunches, as tomato isn't one right? Maybe a carrot if we are running low on fruit. These sound disgusting but I'm keen as for the kiddies to try them. Not sure I would go buy them before sampling though.

My boy isn't a fan of veges - if its got colour you don't eat it except for carrot sticks which are in his lunchbox most days. I also make muffins with added veges but don't tell him that :-) These fruit sticks will help getting more variety into his lunchbox when school starts back.

I Can't keep up with fruit and veges for our three!

Honestly I haven't had a lot of luck getting vegies into their lunchboxes (or at least eaten when they are in there)!!! Am certainly open to suggestions. Fruit is mildly easier, especially for our daughter, but I'm lucky if I can sneak lettuce or carrot into a sandwich for either of them!!!

For my grandchildren I usually add fruit and veges to their lunch boxes by putting in carrot sticks, celery sticks and smaller pieces of fruit such as mandarins, plums and nectarines. The older one is starting to enjoy wraps instead of sandwiches so I fill these with lots of lettuce, grated carrot, cheese, tomato both with and without meat.

I put carrots in her lunch box as they are the only veges she will eat, so having these on her lunchbox would be ideal

Cherry tomatoes are a hit in the lunchbox, sometimes they'll eat carrot sticks too. They also like ham cheese and tomato croissants (although you have to make sure that the tomato is in between the ham and the cheese so that the croissant doesn't go soggy!)

Yes please may I be a reviewer! I have 4 hungry children with bottomless pits for stomachs. These would be really great to try!

My son loves baby corn, so I usually try and put a few pieces in his lunch box, along with carrot sticks and sugar snap peas. I would love to try these as it would be great to have some more variety!

These sound awesome!! I try to put carrot sticks and hummus in Mr 4s lunch. And if I make muffins try and hide veges in those :) would love to try these!

WOW!! These sound awesome. I like the sound of all the flavours. My three (6, 8 and 10) would love to trial these.
I normally put vege sticks into their lunchboxes standing up in a little pottle of hummus (or some other dip).

We would love to try these bars, they love the fruit sticks. I try putting carrot sticks in their lunchboxes but they rarely get eaten. Muffins with veges usually get eaten though!

Mr 2 loveshis fruit and vege but this would be an awesome way to sneak in some extras

I don't really try with lunch apart from cherry tomatoes and raw carrot sticks! I wait until dinner where grated carrot and zucchini go in meat balls and peas and corn go in fried rice!

With four children it's a case of variety and bribery getting veggies into their lunchboxes. Each child has different likes and I try to mix it up with new recipes and products.

I have 2 children aged 6 and 4 who already love the fruit sticks. I'd like to give them fruit sticks with veges in them too. At the moment, I grate extra veges into their dinner and muffins and add little bits of creamed corn into their cheese toasties!

Miss 5 won't eat any veg cold apart from raw carrot so these would b great for the lunch box a long with her fruit bar

I have and 8, 5 and four year old and they would love to try these! We already buy the fruit stuck so hopefully I could sneakily change to these without then noticing! Heehee. Everyday they have capsicum/carrot/ tomato in their lunch boxes but these would be an awesome way to get in more veges! Thanks for the opportunity! :-)

With our grandson, 7, we make muffins together with fruit as an addition and for the veges add them to his mashed potato, which he adores! For dinner when we want him to try a new vege he will have pieces, small, the same number as his age.

I have an avid vege/fruit hater in Master 8 so I am always willing to give something new a go to get his daily dose into him. Miss 10 on the other hand will give anything a try!

My daughter loves raw veggies. .so she is happy to eat them as long as I put in a ice pack.

My almost 5 year old will be starting school soon so it would be great to try these. I find it difficult to get him to eat the traditional veggies in his lunchbox but he loves beetroot on its own or in sandwiches. I also try dips with carrot sticks.

I like to mix it up for my son Fresh fruit and veg and also dried fruit. He loves his fruit and veg and we no a lot of people who would love to no what they are like for when they come on the market.

My almost 4 year old loves veggies but these days i find it hard to get her to eat ANYTHING food is like a chore. I am not sure how good these are but they sound amazing.. i would love to try and see if she would take to them... Thanks for the chance to register for this either way... :)

This would be fantastic for my 3 year old. She starts back at kindy in 2 weeks and I really struggle to find ways to give her an interesting healthy lunch. Last I tried zucchini is chocolate muffins which the kids really enjoyed. However she really isn't interested in raw carrot sticks or celery like I had growing up. We would love to be considered for this trial.

This would be perfect for my 51/2 year old and 21 month old as they both not big fans on veggies, i think these would work wonders, my kids are very fuzzy eaters but love fruit of all kinds, would love to be chosen for the trial :)

These sound really interesting, we'd love to trial them as finding things that my daughter will eat at lunch before she gets distracted by playtime.

My boys are 5,7 and 10. I put cut up carrots in my 5 year old's lunchbox but my other two wont eat vegetables from their lunchboxes. My boys all enjoy the apple and strawberry sticks in their lunchbox - its the only type of bar that they don't get sick of. We would be keen to try.
