Mom, Can I have some Pop Tarts?

Nature's Path Toaster Pastries

As we started changing Benji's diet to be healthier and not have HFCS or red 40 (food coloring) and to limit all cows milk, we realized that he could no longer have his 'pop tarts'. So, we went to our Kroger and I about danced in the aisle when I found an organic version.

There in about 6 different flavors were organic toaster pastries. I checked the ingredients... No HFCS, no Red 40, it does have whey protein but it is very low on the list and we don't notice the digestive problems we see with milk.

So, we tried the flavors that our Kroger had. There was Blueberry, Strawberry, Cherry Pomegranate, Chocolate, Acai Berry, Apple Cinnamon, and I think one more.

They are a hit! Benji loves them for a quick breakfast on days we don't have time to 'make' breakfast. I love them because I know that it is natural food I am feeding my child instead of all the chemicals in other foods.

The negative? At our Kroger regular price is $3.59 a box. A box has 3 packages. 6 tarts total.

The above link goes to the Amazon Grocery Site where they have many of the available flavors. The boxes are in bulk, and from my figures, it's a better deal than going to Kroger to buy the individual boxes.

I rate this product at 4 stars. If it were just the taste it would be 5 stars. It's a little pricey at our local store though.
