Keelings, Ireland’s leading producer and supplier of fresh produce, is delighted to announce the relaunch of the new Snack Pot range. Keelings identified a distinct gap in the market for individual fresh fruit portions for people leading busy lifestyles who want to incorporate “1 of their 5 a day” into their daily diet. Equally, the snack pot range is the perfect addition for the lunch box just in time for children heading back to school, and as we approach the winter months. Keelings’ Snack Pot varieties include Blueberries, Baby Strawberries, Cherries, Mixed Berries and Grapes (depending on seasonality). Snack Pots are now available in stores nationwide.
Speaking about Keelings Snack Pots, David Keeling, MD of Keelings Retail, commented “The reality for many people especially aged from 25 to 40 years is that they are leading busier and more active lifestyles than ever. Our research would suggest that for many juggling work and home life there is less time to pre-prepare healthy snacks.
Keelings’ dedicated Nutritionist Aveen Bannon, worked closely with the team during the Snack Pot development process. Aveen recommended the size and weight of each Snack Pot in line with the standard portion that constitutes “1 of your 5 a day”. Speaking about the benefits of Snack Pots, Aveen points out, “Eating your 5 a day can reduce the risk of getting chronic diseases like heart disease and certain cancers by 20%. For taste, health and weight control, fruit should always be a first snack choice. Apart from being tasty, versatile and a quick easy snack option, fruits are low fat, fibre rich foods that naturally provide us with essential immune boosting vitamins and minerals.”
Snack Pots are currently in stores nationwide for the promotional price of €1*.
