I just don't buy fruit snacks or fun drinks for them very often. Part of it is a budget issue, but mostly it's a nutrition issue. I feel like my kids get candy and junk food often enough for rewards, at the bank, the doctor, etc., that I don't feel like I need to feed their hyper, bouncing off the walls energy with even more dyed, sugary treats and drinks...just because.
When stocking up for some car treats for a recent road trip (I buy fun drinks for stuff like that and special occasions) I found Super V Capri Suns. I was stoked. Real fruit juice with a combined serving of fruits/vegetables in one pouch? I stocked up.
My kids think Capri Suns are a treat, but I know better. It's win-win.
So, when BlogHer invited me to write a review for Kraft Capri Sun Super V , it seemed like a no-brainer. I was already using it and loving it.
They sent me a complimentary pack of Fruit Punch.
When I saw the "Fruit Punch" label, I hesitated.
I didn't want to be a party pooper so we gave it go anyway, and I was honestly, pleasantly surprised.
I allowed a pouch here and there with lunch, or dinner, or even for snack time. It was reassuring knowing that each pouch was going toward their daily intake of fruits and vegetables. It's definitely not a replacement for all the fruits and vegetables in their diet. But if they are going to have a "fun" juice drink, why not ensure that it's good for them too?
There is something so fun about drinking from a pouch wouldn't you say?
