    Main Squeeze
    You'll find only berries, bananasĀ and apples in this neatly packaged smoothie. In the words of a 3-year-old kid tester, "You eat it and you dwink it!" (Ella's Kitchen The Red One, $1.39)

  • Sweet Bell

    A whole yellow bell pepper has almost five times the vitamin C of an orange. Cut into slivers and dunk in French onion dip or, our fave, a raspberry vinaigrette.

  • Oh, Snap!

    We love that this combo has snap peas in the mix and lures kids to nibble with a bit of ranch. Packing a healthy snack just got way easier. Ready Pac Ready Snax Veggies & Cheese, $2.49

  • D-lightful

  • Deep Freeze

    This frozen pop's made with only 100 percent juice -- no neon colors here. You'll have to check your kids' wardrobes for that malfunction. Fruit Chillers in Strawberry Snow Storm, $2.99 for eight

  • Double Duty

    On the outside: yogurt with probiotics, the good bugs that restore balance in the belly. On the inside: antioxidant-packed cherries. Welch's Cherry Fruit 'n Yogurt snacks, $2.99 for 8
