Kraft just made it a little easier for Mom’s to be picky, and for kids to still get what they want. They have come out with a new juice pouch that is actually healthy! Capri Sun Super V has 1 combined serving of fruits/veggies per pouch. It has 3 grams of fiber, and lots of vitamins and minerals. Finally, a juice pouch I can let my son drink! You can see all the stats and great information on their website.
Capri Sun Super V comes in 3 flavors: Apple, Berry, and Fruit Punch. My son’s favorite is the fruit punch. He has no idea it has veggies in it, and is secretly good for him. He just thinks he is cool because Mom is letting him have a juice box. I just had to try one of these as well, and you would NEVER know they are good for you. They taste just like other drinks I have bought in the past.
We are going on a picnic with friends this week, and I know we will be packing these juice pouches. Figuring out the rest of a fun and healthy lunch is now the trick My son loves ham, so I can always make him a ham sandwich on whole grain bread. During the school year I make him a ham sandwich with black olives on a whole wheat hotdog bun. It reminds him of Subway, so he requests it almost every day. We are trying to avoid chips as much as possible. This was a change we made part way through the school year. Graham crackers are a healthier alternative that still gives him the crunchy snack that he likes so much.
Capri SunSuper V would also be a great drink for snack time. Popcorn (without all the butter) is really good for you. A single serve bag of 94% fat free popcorn and a juice pouch, and my 7 year old will think he hit the jackpot for snack time! Now if only I could get him to think carrot sticks was a good snack.
