This is such a fun way to serve veggies to your toddler! These are lots healthier than store bought fruit snacks, and they have carrots in them! Your kid is going to love these!

My toddler is loves fruit snacks, like most toddlers. I don’t usually buy them because they have lots of added sugar. These fruit snacks are so easy to make and they are a great way to get some veggies in. You could even show your toddler the carrots as you put them in and they will see carrots really are yummy!

What You Will Need

  1. Strawberries- you can use fresh or frozen
  2. Carrots
  3. Honey- make sure to only serve for 1+
  4. Gelatin- I use unflavored

Substitutions

  1. You can use any combination of fruit and vegetables that you want! I also like blueberries and spinach, and mango and carrot!

Storage

Keep these veggie fruit snacks in a bag in the fridge for up to a week!

Notes

-Taste the honey and add more if you need it sweeter.

-You can do apple juice instead of water if you want a sweeter taste as well!

    1. I have never frozen them, I’m not sure what would happen to the texture. Let me know if you try!

      I froze them for a few days and they defrosted just fine! The texture seemed unchanged to me, however I subbed the apple juice for water and doubled the honey.

      1. The texture is a lot more soft than normal fruit snacks. I can pretty easily smash them between my fingers!

    Love it! thank you so so much, this is a life saver my 2 year old loves gummy’s and this is it… Healthy and good!!!!

  2. Did your gummies stick to the mold? Or is that a sign I should let them sit longer in the fridge?

  3. Hello, I sometimes have different fruit than strawberries, like blueberries, watermelon, or mango. Can I use the same measurements or due to the water content would it change the measurements?
