5 Healthy Supermarket Popsicles You Can Buy Anytime

Frozen fruit popsicles are some of the healthiest supermarket popsicles you can find. I’ve uncovered 5 winners you can feel good about.

Sure, you can make your own popsicles and control the ingredients.

But, do you have to make homemade versions to get the healthiest popsicles you’re looking for?

And, what constitutes a healthy popsicle, anyways?

I’ve updated my popular post from 2011 and reviewed what I consider to be the top healthy popsicles brands you can find in most grocery stores.

Similar to my original post, this popsicle list excludes products with artificial sweeteners and food dyes.

The Best Popsicles are Made with Real Fruit

The best popsicles were based on their impressive markers in the area of health quality for kids: reasonable calories, fat, and sugar, as well as overall nutrient content and the lack of artificial additives and ingredients.

This came down to fruit popsicles, mostly. Fudgesicles, dream pops and other popsicles often have added sugar, artificial sugar, or extra ingredients kids don’t really need.

The following are what I consider to be the best fruit popsicles, listed in no particular order.

Drum roll, please…
