Offering kids healthy, nutrient-dense foods has always been a priority for us, and as a parent to two school aged kids myself, keeping their immune systems strong to fight off common illnesses is critical, especially during these times

Slammers Snacks is announcing the addition of Wellmune® to its line of organic crushed super fruit and veggie snacks. Available at more than 6,100 retailers across the U.S., Slammers are the first snack to market in the applesauce aisle to include Wellmune®. Wellmune® is a leading science-based natural beta glucan derived from baker’s yeast, clinically shown to help strengthen the immune system; particularly important right now.

The immunity booster, added to Slammers’ nutrient-dense super fruits and vegetables, creates a wholesome power snack for active kids that goes beyond the typical applesauce pouch.
“Offering kids healthy, nutrient-dense foods has always been a priority for us, and as a parent to two school aged kids myself, keeping their immune systems strong to fight off common illnesses is critical, especially during these times,” says Jennifer Carlson, Co-Founder & CEO of Slammers.

“Keeping kids well is always going to be a top concern for the whole family, which is one of the main reasons parents are looking for immune supporting products like Slammers Snacks,” said John Quilter, VP at Kerry, the makers of Wellmune®. “Obviously safety is paramount in any product for children, and the key to guaranteeing it is through high-quality scientific research. The many studies supporting Wellmune®’s safety and efficacy demonstrate how the ingredient can help to support the general immune health of children.”
