Finding healthy snacks that children actually like to eat is always a challenge - especially when it comes to sweet things. However, one video blogger unlocked a goldmine for parents with a quick and easy recipe for homemade fruit roll-ups. This simple process allows you to also control any artificial flavors or preservatives.
"Homemade fruit rollups are easy to make, they are fun to eat and they are also a healthy snack," the Fifteen Spatulas cook and video blogger said during her five-minute tutorial. "The flavor's incredibly. It's very concentrated, like almost 'jam-y.' It is really good."

The recipe only calls for three ingredients: chopped fruit, lemon or lime juice and a sweetener of either honey or sugar. For fruit options, you can use mangos, strawberries, peaches plums or whatever fruit your family might have a particular taste for as it comes in season.
After blending the fruit, you can sit back and relax as it slowly dehydrates in a low-temperature oven. In only a few hours, you have a fun, tasty snack without the guilt or store-bought processed foods.
If you know someone with lots of picky snackers in their family, be sure to share this fun, healthy and east-to-make treat with them.
