We always have Del Monte fruit cups on hand at our house, they are my daugther’s go to snack and have been for years. This is just about the only way I can get my Jasmine to eat fruit, we stick with what works. Jasmine does have a few favorites, Diced Peaches in light syrup with Cinnamon & Brown Sugar is definitely a high on the list, she also loves regular peaches, and mandarins. My husband and I always enjoy experimenting in the kitchen, just the other night we were standing in the canned fruit aisle at Wal-Mart and had a thought. We decided to try to make homemade whipped topping with cream cheese. We both knew the fruit would pair well with the topping and would taste delicious too. Family fun night and healthy Del Monte fruit snacks so hand in hand. #Snacks4WimpyKid

Jasmine quickly found her favorite Del Monte Fruit Cup Snacks, she was super proud that she was all enough to each. I like to pair family time, healthy snacks, and movie time together. We don’t often get the chance to take Jasmine out to a movie because it’s hard to find a babysitter for her baby brother. We want to take Jasmine to see Diary of A Wimpy Kid but will probably have to wait till it comes out on DVD. Instead of seeing the movie I decided to have Jasmine draw a family portrait in Diary of A Wimpy Kid style.

Preparing for Family Fun Night





 Jasmine Sketching Our Family


I asked Jasmine to draw our family, as she sees us. I gave her a tub of sharpened colored pencils, a large poster board and she got busy.



Needless to say, she was very proud of her masterpiece. I told Jasmine I was going to get her drawing framed and I would eventually find the time to hang it above our fireplace. I can’t even begin to image how proud that would make her.

Our Family


I love that she drew me slightly taller than Daddy, her baby brother, Sean has a little curl on top of his head. Jasmine even drew our two pets down in the corner, Tiger our cat, and Elephant our guinea pig. Yes, I’m aware that our pets probably have some sort of identity crisis going on.

There’s a healthy, fun, and easy way to turn fruit time into a fun snack. Do you plan on taking your kid(s) to see Diary of A Wimpy Kid? Swapping out traditional snack food before the movie is a great way to keep your kids healthy. Concession food costs so much, and let’s face it, it’s just bad all around. Fill your kids up before the movie with Del Monte Fruit Cup Snacks. Grab a few fruit cups before heading out the door while out at end of the summer activities. With all this back to school madness happening sometimes it’s fun to take a break by going out and seeing a fun movie with your family. We hope to get the chance real soon.
