Fruit by the foot is a fruit snack made by General Mills. It is basically made with sugar mainly from juice concentrates and various other dyes and manufactured food products. Fruit by the foot is made from a puree of ingredients that are baked together and then put on wax paper and rolled up into a roll. Although their name would imply that each one is a foot long the length actually varies.
These snacks are sometimes seen as a healthier alternative to more sugary snacks but truly they are no healthier than any snack. You can make your own fruit by the foot with real fruit that turns out to be much healthier than the fruit by the foot you can purchase at the store.
