KIND recently unveiled an installation in Times Square made of 45,485 pounds of sugar. The installation serves as a visual representation of the amount of added sugar children in the U.S. are eating every five minutes.

Fruit snacks are an often undetected contributor to this overconsumption, with 9 out of the 10 leading fruit snacks containing added sugar as the first ingredient.

Consistent with KIND's 13-year history as a health and wellness leader, this month also marks their entry into the fruit snacks category with the release of KIND┬« Fruit Bites, the only fruit snack from a leading snack brand that contains no added sugars and has fruit as the first and only ingredient - you won't find any juices, purees, concentrates or preservatives here!
