Compal Essential Fruit Shots

Compal is a popular Portuguese brand who have kindly exported these cute little bottles of 100% pure fruit. Each 110ml bottle contains roughly 50-60 calories and also provides one of your 'five a day' portions of fruit.
Apple, Pear and Mango

With six tempting flavours to choose from: Pear, Apple, Strawberry, Mango, Pineapple and Peach, there's sure to be something to suit everyone. And if you have children who don't like eating certain kinds of fruit, these are a fabulous solution and most kids simply love them.

The only problem is they can be tough for little hands to open so if there's one in their lunch box, they might need the help of an adult at lunch time.

If you're wondering what consistency they are, they're a bit thinner than a fruit puree but thicker than fruit juice. They have to be stored in the fridge but have a reasonably long shelf life.

So far they've only been spotted in branches of  Waitrose, but they can also be ordered online from Ocado. You can find out more about these little bottles of goodness at the Compal site where you'll see there are actually a couple more flavours mentioned - Plum and Kiwi which don't seem to be available here yet.
