is it as healthy?? obviously the stuff in natural jucies.
I've tried all the fresh and DS (8 months) isn't interested cos it's too sharp but tinned seem nicer.

my charge loves tinned fruit... especially with custard! (oh and so do I!)

I think so too! (it may lose some of its nutrients but not all and will still be high in fibre - definitely better than no fruit at all, but do keep trying him on fresh fruit too as they go through phases).

My children eat lots of tinned fruit - as long as it's in natural juice I would consider it perfectly healthy and as good as fresh. My two like it with custard, icecream, fromage frais or whizzed up in a smoothie, especially tropical fruit!

and they seem to be virtually additive free

Like the sound of whizzing it up in the smoothie machine

Nothing like a pineapple, banana and yogurt smoothie! Mmmmm.

right stop it - it sounds too yummy and I have no fruit in the house (and only fromage frais)

I always buy the ones in Natural fruit juice (inc grape juice) not the one in syrup

I think I read somewhere that it's not quite as good as fresh and you have to eat more of it to make one of your 5-a-day portions but if it's in juice rather than syrup I think it's not too bad.
