FreshTart Excellent. More unrecycleable garbage to end up in landfills to fuel the needs of the convenience generations.

Probably so, but at least fruit and veggies are better than Cheetos and other junky snacks. <shrug>

Grab-and-go veggie snacks lure kids

Companies market 'fun' packages of fruits, vegetables

Updated: 1:22 p.m. ET May 2, 2005CHICAGO - Eat more fruits and vegetables. Mom says it. Uncle Sam, too. Yet people still do not get enough and the government just doubled the recommended amount.

Trying to entice shoppers, produce companies are putting freshly sliced fruit into fun packages for kids and packaging carrot and celery sticks to fit in a car cup-holder. Some on the new lines are on display at the Food Marketing Institute show, the supermarket industrys annual convention.

Sunkists Fun Fruits are sliced oranges, apples or pineapples, or red grapes with no stems, available in half-cup serving packages that have pictures of kids on them. The products will be in supermarkets this year; Sunkist is working on a version for grown-ups.
