My kids love fruit in any shape or form, including applesauce! It is a great , healthy portable snack that parents can feel great about giving to their kids. Let’s be honest, though, bigger kids can eat more than just one of the tiny applesauce cups, and that leads to more waste for the environment. That is why I was thrilled to hear about the new Musselman’s BIG cups of applesauce! The are the perfect size for bigger kids appetites, with all the great yummy goodness from Musselman’s!
