I wish I would have tried these when my boys were little! Now that they are 2 and 4, they didn't really like them (not sweet enough I think). But I would definitely recommend them for infants/toddlers.
My one year old loves these! I didn't have applesauce at home when I made it, so I used a few jars of baby food, and it worked great. I've also traded out the banannas for strawberries and pears, and other fruits, and it's all very tasty! Thanks again!
I wanted to try these since I am searching for a homemade version of gummy fruit snacks for my boys. I left it in the fridge overnight and it still did not completely gel (more like a yogurt consistency). I gave it to my boys in bowls to try and they rank it "Ok"... not good and not bad. This recipe is not the winner in my search. I have 2 more rcipes to try that I found on other sites.
