Hello my lovely readers! I am here to share with you the perfect back to school snack for kids. My eldest daughter is in grade 3 and she loves the green Li’l Oliver Olives. My youngest loves both black and green. We received Sardo Li’l Oliver Olives for review purposes and we love them! These are great! Perfect to put in the lunch bags for a great healthy snack. Let me begin by telling you a little about Sardo Foods.

I really enjoyed both green and black olives. My eldest didn’t like the black ones by my youngest loved both. Here is some interesting information!

I’m truly happy that I was offered Li’l Oliver olives for review purposes because my girls love them and this is a lovely way for them to eat olives without the fear of the seed. The Sardo Olives are pitted! Before I would have to take the seed out but with Li’l Oliver Olives I don’t have to worry about it! Now it is easy and fun too! I love the reward stickers also. I really like how the olives are packaged and love how easy it is for the kids to open them. They are easy to open and nutritious for them too!
