This Summer we are planning on spending more time outdoors with the girls, and enjoying the Texas weather. But, one thing about Texas weather, is it can get really warm. So along with a solid stock pile of water, we are stocking up on nutritious treat for the kids like Dole Fruit Squish’ems!


The girls love the taste and texture of the new Dole Fruit Squish’ems. We have both the apple and Apple mix berry flavor readlly availbe for hem to grab when ever they need a wholesome snack. We even have taken a few and frozen them for a refreshing treat on a hot day.

Dole Squishem girls

DOLE Fruit Squish’ems has partnered with two-time FIFA Women’s World Cup winner and mom, Brandi Chastain and the American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) to help soccer families across the country gear up for game days. She offers a lot of helpful advice and tips for parents with kids who play sports. She’s a pro soccer player and a soccer mom – definitely an expert in this arena! One of my favorite Game Day Great Tips from Brandi is about practice.

  • Be a good sport — win or lose.
  • Eat healthy meals, not just on game day, so that you’re always ready for activity.
  • Practice your sport!
  • Pack extra socks, cleats and other supplies so you’re never without something you need.
  • Double check the schedule and your email to make sure there are no last minute changes you need to be aware of.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Remember to have fun and play as a team — always treating everyone with respect.
