Fruit to Family

I’m just going to come right out and say it: I’m a picky eater, and I always have been. I was that kid who ordered chicken nuggets and french fries at Italian restaurants (and pretty much everywhere else, too). I was that kid whose parents had to fight them tooth and nail to get them to eat their vegetables at dinner. Truth be told, I’d still be that kid if I could, but now I know how necessary it is to have a balanced diet (or whatever).  You see, I had (read: have) what I like to call a “fruit and veggie radar,” something most kids across the nation possess, too; where no matter how much you know they’ll actually enjoy something once they give it a try, they refuse to open their mouth for fruits and veggies lest you threaten to take away everything they love. For this specific reason, my mom (bless her) relied on products that disguised the fact that they’re packed with good-for-you ingredients to help make sure I was getting my necessary fruit and veggie intake.  

Capri Sun was a staple of my childhood; it was a requirement for school lunches, after school snacks, road trips, soccer games, and birthday parties. As good as they were then, they’re even better now, and they’ve made it easier than ever for moms to feel good about saying “yes!” to just one more Capri Sun.


Let’s talk about their Fruit and Veggie Blends–AKA, the sneakiest mom hack yet. They come in 3 flavors: Apple Sweet Potato Smash, Berry Carrot Blast, and Punch Carrot Craze. I’ll admit I was skeptical of this one at first, but after conducting my own personal taste test, I can guarantee your kids will have no idea there are vegetables in these. Every pouch contains ½ cup of fruit and veggie juice, no added sugar, and is made with all natural ingredients


Growing up, my mom would add water to our juice to cut down on sugar. Two decades later and most parents I know are still doing the same thing. Now, Capri Sun is doing the work for you by making Fruit Refreshers, which are a combination of juice and filtered water. They have 50% less sugar than average leading fruit juices, and they’re a perfect on-the-go treat for your little. They’ll love how they taste, and you’ll love that you didn’t have to find the lid to that sippy cup to mix up your own low-sugar option. 


Knowing what you’re actually feeding your kids is important, so you can rest easy knowing that every pouch of Organic Capri Sun is USDA certified organic and has no added sugar. Plus, it contains no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. And unlike some other organic drinks out there, you don’t get any of that weird after taste or pulpy residue that grosses kids out. They’ll love it [and you will, too]

All Capri Sun varieties are made without high fructose corn syrup or artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, which means you can feel really good about saying “yes” to Capri Sun for your family. Now it’s just a matter of figuring out which one your kids will love most and stocking up on those flavors next time you’re at the grocery– and when you shop at Walmart, you’re also saying “yes” to savings and staying on budget. Score!
