Four Great Ways To Quench Your Kids’ Thirst

Thank you CAPRI SUN for sponsoring this post. You can find CAPRI SUN’s four new All Natural Ingredient and No Sugar Added products at most grocery retailers nationwide, including local grocery stores, mass merchandisers and club stores.

Ahhh, a cold, refreshing drink. It’s just such a great pleasure, isn’t it? On a super hot day or after a tough workout, is there anything better? Probably not. As much as I love a great beverage, my kids love a good drink even more. They love to drink, they want to drink all day long. Seriously, it’s all the time. When you’re dealing in volumes like this, my wife and I always want to make sure they are drinking something that’s good for them. We are looking for a good tasting drink that’s easy for them to use with good ingredients inside. For example, All Natural Ingredients and No Added Sugar is a must. These are top priorities, no doubt about it, and there are even more. It’s for these reasons that we are always stocked with the awesomely good CAPRI SUN.

CAPRI SUN drinks are perfect for my kids, either at home or on the go. Those pouches are a hit, man, and are the way they really prefer to have a drink. They also taste great, coming in so many awesome flavors and varieties. They never tire of the options!!

For me, I’m all about the goodness that’s inside the pouch. CAPRI SUN Organic, CAPRI SUN 100% Juice, CAPRI SUN Fruit & Veggie Blends, and NEW CAPRI SUN Fruit Refreshers are made with All Natural ingredients, no added sugar* and no high-fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. This is so important, it just can’t be overstated. CAPRI SUN is a brand that continues to innovate and listen to consumers, and knows that parents want to feel good about what they give their kids to eat and drink. That’s the main reason CAPRI SUN created four products with All Natural Ingredients and No Added Sugar*, and why their products have never contained artificial preservatives, colors or flavors – to give parents options with ingredients that fit their preferences. We stock up on all four varieties! We like them all, each for different reasons.

*Not a low-calorie beverage

Take CAPRI SUN Organic. These drinks use a Certified USDA Organic fruit drink blend aimed at helping parents strike the right balance between what their kids want to drink and what parents feel good about serving. Also, CAPRI SUN 100% Juice, served in the classic CAPRI SUN pouch, is a refreshing juice offering ¾ cup of fruit juice per pouch. If your kids are like mine, they simply do not love eating their vegetables. In this case, CAPRI SUN Fruit & Veggie Blends might be your ticket. Previously known as Super V, CAPRI SUN Fruit & Veggie Blends is packed with yummy fruit and veggie juices, giving kids the delicious fruit juice they love with the added benefits from vegetable juices with ½ cup of fruit and veggie juice per pouch. Finally, the new kid on the block and maybe our new favorite! NEW CAPRI SUN Fruit Refreshers is made with a blend of fruit juice and filtered water. It’s packed with flavor and has 50% less sugar than the average leading fruit juices.**

These four new products from CAPRI SUN have the taste kids love, without the ingredients that we, as parents, don’t want in their drinks. It’s a win-win all around.

Enjoy The Pool This Summer And Get Outdoors With New CAPRI SUN Organic


This is a sponsored post with CafeMom and CAPRI SUN. All opinions expressed are my own.
CAPRI SUN Outdoors Pool 3

It’s the dog days of summer. It’s 100 degrees in the shade and the air conditioning, pools and beaches are rocking. It’s the best time of the year if you’re a kid (and just love life) in so many ways!! Are you out and about? Are your kids being kids and playing outside?

CAPRI SUN Outdoors Pool 5

One of our favorite summer activities is hitting our awesome town pool. Seriously, it’s like a resort. Even better! A waterpark for kids, 2 pools, a water slide, mini-golf, 2 playgrounds, movies on the lawn, music, and more. It’s awesome and we can’t get enough. It’s just a go-to spot where we don’t even have to plan to meet people there…there’s just always a ton of people ready to hang out and have fun! It’s really one of the best perks of living where we live and we are so thankful every summer to have it!

Capri Sun Pool Bag
The pool is great. They can swim, dance, play, run, and do all the things that kids should be doing during the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer! One thing is for certain, the kids will have a blast and never want to leave. Another thing is certain, we will pack a bag that’s stocked up for the day. Sunblock, towels, clothes, snacks, cash, and CAPRI SUN Organic is always there and ready for action.

CAPRI SUN Outdoors Pool 9

The kids (and the parents) really just love the convenience of the CAPRI SUN pouches and the all-new, awesome ingredient-laden Organic juices are perfect for the Sweeneys trying to live a much healthier and happier 2016!

CAPRI SUN Outdoors Pool 6

The Fruit Punch, Apple, Tropical Punch, or Grape flavors of CAPRI SUN Organic are the perfect drink. From the ease of the pouches to the Certified USDA Organic juice drink made of 66% juice, all three of the kids just can’t get enough of it! Oh yeah…the New CAPRI SUN Organic does NOT contain any High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, or added sugar!!!

CAPRI SUN Outdoors Pool 4

It’s not an easy thing to find something the entire family agrees on!

I’m also loving the message that CAPRI SUN is spreading! Get out and about! Don’t schedule everything in the kids’ lives! Let them get dirty, improvise, and just be kids. That’s what it means to be a kid. Don’t take it all away with too much “adult-style” scheduling. Let them be bored, let them think up games to play, let them just go. It won’t turn out badly…it didn’t for you did it?

To give you even more of a taste for what the new CAPRI SUN Organic is all about, check out the CAPRI SUN Let Em Go video here to get you even more in the mood for springtime fun!!!

Well? Pretty sweet, right? I love this campaign. I really am all about it. I’m about the message and I’m about the new ingredients in these juices. It’s just what the doctor ordered for me this year and in the years to come. Get out and enjoy! Maybe you’ll feel more like a kid, too, and there’s no downside to that.

Fuel Your Kids’ Outside Adventures with New CAPRI SUN Organic


Capri Sun Organic

The weather outside has been absolutely amazing in New York this spring. It’s been 65, sunny, and perfect pretty much every day. The grass is getting greener and the leaves are coming in. Even more fun…the kids are out and about all the time. From soccer to lacrosse to just hanging out with their friends, the kids are really soaking up all the good times and fine weather. It’s been perfect.

Capri Sun Organic

My parents live in a house with a lot of hills and an acre of land. It’s perfect for the kids. Some of the property is even wooded so they really think they are in a faraway land.

Capri Sun Organic

While the kids are very content with just running around like crazy people, here are 6 games they love to play when they are “away” in Grandma-and-Grandpa Land.

  • Hide and Seek – think lots of trees, bushes, and nook and crannies. There are a lot of games to play, but this is probably the top.
  • Tag – an acre of land offers a lot of room to run, and that’s just what they do. Plenty of space, plenty of laughs.
  • Soccer – It’s another great open space game, and you don’t need much. Just bring along your ball and have at it!
  • Hill Rolling – The area is hilly, but the front of the house is really hilly. The kids love to just roll down over and over again. So does dad…
  • Swimming – Yes, there is a pool and they love it. It’s a fantastic activity and loads of fun in just about every way. It’s really nice. I didn’t have a pool growing up, so it’s nice that my kids get the chance to enjoy it themselves.
  • Just Plain Running – Yep, that’s it. Just running. Running up the hill and down. Running through the trees and onto the driveway. It’s fun and it can go on for a long time. The best is the final high-speed run right into the front door. Easy…good by me.

Capri Sun Organic

When your kids are out, playing games, and creating adventures, it’s important for them to hydrate throughout. When they look for a drink, it’s always important to get something that won’t slow them down. Something that’s made with good stuff. Something that they love to drink.

Capri Sun Organic

The Fruit Punch, Apple, Tropical Punch, or Grape flavors of CAPRI SUN Organic are the perfect drink. From the ease of the pouches to the Certified USDA Organic juice drink made of 66% juice, all three of the kids just can’t get enough of it! Oh yeah…the New CAPRI SUN Organic does NOT contain any High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, or added sugar!!!

That’s a lot of no’s right there…thankfully…and how can’t you get behind that!

Bolthouse Farms Spring Flavors Launched…And It Was Good #BolthouseFarms #FoodSocial #FreshTip

 

Bolthouse Farms Event 2016 10

Bolthouse Farms, known for their of super premium beverages, launched some amazing new spring flavors with Siriously Delicious founder and “Today Show” contributor, Siri Daly and renowned photographer Bright Bazaar’s Will Taylor at Haven’s Kitchen in NYC. The space was really nice and laid out perfectly for the day of sampling and other fun Bolthouse Farms had in store for us.

Bolthouse Farms Event 2016 13

First, we sat down and got a chance to sample all the goodies.The tasting menu was stocked and ready to rock…and so was I. The we sampled 6 new beverages, each one was better than the next. Some were light and refreshing while some were richer and very satisfying.

The Raspberry Blood Orange was very tasty and one of my favorites…and then they made a cocktail…and it was good. This may be the perfect mixer for sparking wine or hard liquor alike. The sweet-tart flavor really popped.

Bolthouse Farms Event 2016 12

Berries and Green Veggies was awesome. I love green drinks that expertly mix the sweetness of fruit with the bitterness and wholesomeness of greens. This was balanced perfectly, for real. It was very tasty, all the while you know you were doing something good for your body.

Bolthouse Farms Event 2016 4

Next up…Mango Pineapple Colada. This is the tropical drink dream you’ve been waiting at the beach your whole life for. It’s great. Very tasty, healthy, and another great cocktail mixer. Classic and delicious, with a touch of mango to spice it up a bit.

Now we get to the Protein PLUS® line of deliciousness. These drinks are thick, rich, hearty, loaded with protein and flavor. Dope line of product.

Protein PLUS® Strawberry was great. I love strawberries, strawberry ice cream, and strawberry yogurt. Some of my favorites of all time…and this drink smashes with that awesome flavor. I loved it.

Protein PLUS® Coconut was tasty and rich, given the protein and the natural fatty goodness and richness of the coconut. Very tasty and balanced.

Finally, Protein PLUS® Banana Honey Almond Butter was on the menu. Now, this is pretty much a protein shake all done and ready to go. It was very sweet and very rich, the sweetest of all the 6 drinks by a long shot. The balance of the almond butter was great to balance the sweet.

To highlight the many uses for juices beyond the bottle, Siri Daly taught us how to make easy and delicious recipes that literally rocked…hard. She also shared some other tips when cooking with juices. Then, Will Taylor offered us some of his secrets and tricks for taking the best images to ensure some super dope, very Instagram-worthy pics of all your foodie shots. It was a great day all around that really showcased how tasty, versatile, and pretty awesome Bolthouse Farms goodies are.

The event was great and the new line of flavors were really great. It’s nice the something so darn tasty is also good for you. I took some home and my kids inhaled the lot of it. I didn’t have a chance…seriously. This was a home run for me and the family.

It’s Spring! Let Em Go The Right Way With New CAPRI SUN Organic


Capri Sun Liam Soccer Collage

The weather is really nice right now in New York. It’s springtime baby and the kids are always looking to be out and about. It’s time for bike rides and scooter fun, walks to the park and playing “monster” at the playground. It’s time for soccer, baseball, and lacrosse. It’s time to remember you are alive and well and the kids are there to have fun. Shaking the winter blues off is a must at this time of year.

Running, jumping, and playing is something even us adults need to do much more of. As you may know, I’ve been on a bit of a health kick in 2016. I am trying to get back into shape, and so is Vera. In fact, the whole family is exercising more and eating better. I am also very aware that we all need to hydrate as much as we can, especially when exercise and activity in the warm weather is going on.

Capri Sun Liam Yellow Ball Collage

An easy way for the kids (who am I kidding…for me, too) to keep hydrated in a way that’s as organic as their play is with New CAPRI SUN Organic. Capri Sun has been making some amazing changes and it continues with this wholesome, Certified USDA Organic juice drink made of 66% juice. That’s equal to 1 serving of fruit*, people. Organic ingredients that the kids absolutely love? Sign me up.

You want to know something else? Sure you do. It’s also good to learn something new. Good for the soul. How about I let you in on all of the things the New CAPRI SUN Organic DOESN’T have?!

Capri Sun Liam Caleb Table Collage

Oh yeah, baby….get this. The New CAPRI SUN Organic does NOT contain:

  • High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)
  • Artificial Colors, Flavors or Preservatives
  • Added Sugar

How can you beat that? I’m not really very sure you can. It seems that while your kid is outside working hard to improve his or her soccer game (Messi anyone?), Capri Sun is doing the same with all of their awesome drinks. You know and I know that it’s awesome…and so do the kids. There are not too many things where I agree completely with the kids, I have to admit that. The kids love the taste, be it Fruit Punch, Apple, Tropical Punch, or Grape, and they love to slurp and smash that great pouch. It’s also the perfect drink when they are on the go.

Capri Sun Organic GAB 9

These drinks are completely rocking with great flavors and none of the nasty stuff you just don’t want your kids to have. It’s perfect for all that spring craziness has in store for us. It’s time to shake off those winter blues and get moving again. While they’re at it, let them soak in 100% recommended Daily Value Vitamin C, because that’s what they are getting in each pouch. Dope. Let em go and enjoy every minute!!

Check out the CAPRI SUN Let Em Go video here to get you even more in the mood for springtime fun!!!
