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

5 Healthy Supermarket Popsicles

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

But, do you have to make homemade popsicles to get the health punch 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 you can find in most grocery stores.

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

The winners 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.

These healthy supermarket popsicles are listed in no particular order.

Drum roll, please…
