It’s warm outside, the flowers are blooming and the birds are chirping. It’s finally that time of the year where you can start to plan family picnic’s to your local park again. This is that time of year where this mom has no problem walking a few blocks to our nearest park to let the kids play. WE love to visit our local park on beautiful day’s such as these and let go of our cabin fever which has been building up with all of these huge snow days. I still can’t believe it snowed in April over here!
Since my kids love to go to the park I have had to learn how to pack snacks and fruit juices that will keep them fueled and happy. I am so happy to have found that the Capri Sun juice drinks are now offering Organic juice options. They have Tropical Punch, Fruit Punch, Grape and Apple, my kids love all of them! My favorite has to be the Tropical Punch which has all of my favorite tropical fruits together in one delicious juice drink. Yes, I’m a big kid and still love to enjoy my Capri Sun Organic juice drinks. The thing I love about these NEW Organic juice drinks is that they are balanced, wholesome and better-for-you!
Capri Sun Organic is a certified USDA organic juice drink that contains one serving of fruit. Each pouch provides 1/2 cup fruit juice which is one serving of fruit according to the U.S. Dietary Guidelines. Made with 66 percent fruit juice and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, Capri Sun Organic gives kids the taste they love and gives parents a balanced drink option that they can feel good about serving. Did I mention that it contains 100% recommended daily value of vitamin C and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives? Yeah, I’m loving this new Capri Sun Organic juice drink line they have released!
Even though we are only a few blocks from home, I really like to pack quick snack’s that will keep the kids energy up while they play. So to do that I will pack cut up fruit or grabbing size fruits to dip in my special chocolate fruit dip. The best thing about my fruit dip is that you don’t HAVE to keep it refrigerated to enjoy it, you can just throw it in your picnic basket and take it along with you. You can also refrigerate it overnight if you would like to have it grab and go ready.
Do you have a favorite picnic recipe you like to bring along on your park outings? Have you tried the NEW Capri Sun Organic juice drink flavors yet? If so what is your favorite one?
