With five children and a full time business, our family is constantly on the go. Four out of our five are homeschooled. Three are in high school, and have busy schedules ranging from gymnastic practice, music lessons, and dual enrollment at a local college. Keeping a balanced diet doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming, and can be as simple as slipping a Capri Sun Organic juice drink into your bag before heading out the door!
Capri Sun Organic is a simpler, positive addition to an action-packed day. Capri Sun Organic is offered in four kid-friendly flavors; Fruit Punch, Tropical Punch, Grape, and Apple. We decided to try our favorite flavors, Fruit Punch and Tropical Punch, and instantly fell in love with them. Their flavors are just as delicious as their traditional line, but they have been certified organic by the USDA.
Capri Sun Organic is sweetened with only fruit juice. Each pouch contains one serving of fruit in each pouch. (Each pouch provides 1/2 cup fruit juice, which is one serving of fruit according to the U.S. Dietary Guidelines.) The six-ounce pouches are made with 66% fruit juice, and contains no added sugar. Capri Sun Organic contains no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. Each pouch also contains 100% of the daily recommended dose of vitamin C – an extra plus for busy moms that choose wholesome! Capri Sun Organic is available nationwide at retailers such as Walmart and Target, for $4.29 for a package of 10. Each pouch is proportioned at six ounces; one serving.
5 Ways to Eat Healthy
1. Plan your day ahead of time.
Planning ahead is not only frugal and prevents impulse buys, it also allows for healthy eating. I enjoy a daily fruit smoothie, but often make it early in the morning so I can enjoy it in the afternoon. With no mess and no preparation needed, Capri Sun Organic is simple to throw in a lunchbox for a wholesome on the go drink.
2. Plan your snacks ahead of time.
Likewise, if you know a long day is ahead, pack snacks the night before. Throwing healthy snacks in your bag before heading out the door, or the night before, can eliminate impulse trips to the vending machine or fast food line. Capri Sun Organic is not required to be refrigerated, so it can easily be packed the night before.
3. Have wholesome snacks in your cabinet.
Since we eat lunch on the earlier end of the things, often times our toddlers need a quick tide-over until dinner. Convenient snacking doesn’t have to be complicated or processed, and Capri Sun Organic offers a guilt-free and wholesome alternative to traditional fruit, while still providing a serving of fruit.
4. Pack simpler snacks.
Since Capri Sun Organic comes unopened and with a sealed straw, they’re easy to throw in your purse in preparation for a long dance recital or late soccer practice. It is also proportioned for one serving, making this a convenient fit in an exhausting day.
5. Make healthy eating delicious.
Healthy eating often has a negative stigma. Flavorful and delicious organic snacks such as Capri Sun Organic can shed a new light on this; giving kids something they love, while providing parents with a stress-free and wholesome drink.
