(Picture: Jude’s)Independent ice cream brand Jude’s has launched a new range of ice lollies made with both fruits and vegetables.
The Fruit & Veg Rockets are made with entirely naturally sourced ingredients and no refined sugar.
The launch comes alongside a range of healthier products aimed at children, alongside the company’s existing frozen milk lollies and two different flavoured milks.
Jude’s also has a range of premium ice cream for adults, with flavours such as caramel-pecan and black coconut, as well as a range of mini ice creak sticks.
The new lollies are a healthier choice for children who want an icy snack during warmer weather.
They contain just 32 calories and less than 10% sugar, making them the lowest sugar content frozen treat on the market, according to the brand.
(Picture: Jude’s)The lollies are also 46% below Public Health England’s recommended sugar levels for children’s ice cream products by 2020 and under the recommended sugar levels for yogurts as part of the Childhood Obesity Plan.
Jude’s managing director Chow Mezger said: ‘The Little Jude’s fruit and veg rocket Lollies address [the] sugar concerns of parents, with less sugar than your average yogurt.
‘They are also a fun and tasty way for children to get nutrients from fruit and veg, which can often be a challenge! We’re proud to be leading the way and offering parents and kids a delicious, healthier everyday treat.’
The healthier treats will be available in Sainsbury’s, with a pack of six costing £3.59.
You’ll be able to buy them from 5th May.
