I used to be under the impression all applesauces were healthy for kids. This is not the case! there are some apple sauces that contain high percentages of sugar. Most of the calories come from the sugar which in most cases is from High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) or some other type of added sweetener. Learn more about HFCS from Bluelightwave.
Although I prefer an old-fashion fresh apple to chew on, my boys do enjoy a quick sweet snack such apple sauce at times.
