Super Duo! Super Caprisun Fun!

by Tickled Red on August 20, 2012 · 13 comments




Whether they are paddling out to catch some waves,

Or palling around at the pool our water babies are always going nonstop, especially during summer break. They try to cram in as many high-energy activities as possible before school starts back. Always pushing themselves to the limit surfing and swimming from sunup to sunset.

Occasionally defying gravity,

As well as testing the extent of their lung capacity. Being in the water is where they are most at home, then again they are their fathers boys no doubt about it. Hence, the reason I dub them the Super Duo!

As you guys know I am always trying to stay on top of what the boys are consuming, especially since they are so active. I do my best to see that they are getting the maximum amount of nutrients along with whole foods and lean proteins. What about what they drink? While running track in high school I learned the value of not drinking soda, so if you ever pop by you will not find any in our refrigerator. Fortunately, the boys do not mind soda doesn’t appeal to them. They actually prefer water, juice or milk. However, we still like to have fun drinks along with the fruit & veggie trays we pack on our outings.

This is where Caprisun’s Super V comes in for some refreshing thirst quenching variety. Handy pouches, less sugar, less sodium and mixed with fruit and vegetable juice. It’s a win win for me!

One Capri Sun Super V pouch has…

  • 70 calories
  • 0 grams of fat
  • 20 milligrams of sodium
  • 18 grams of carbohydrates
  • 3 grams of fiber
  • 14 grams of sugar
  • 0 grams of protein
  • 10% vitamin C
  • 10% vitamin E

Compare that with a can of soda. Pop on over to Caprisun and see what you think of their New Super V.

You can ask the knuckleheads above which drink they prefer,

Or check out the irony for yourselves. Is our youngest monkey going for a can of soda or is it something else entirely?

Try ice-cold liquid ammunition from the ice water surrounding the soda instead.

Smart nutritionally but not necessarily a healthy choice in the long run :D

When it comes to eating and drinking healthy it is all about personal choices but as a mom, I have found that cutting out most processed foods works but you can still leave room for fun along with nutrition. Compromise along with everything in moderation seems to work best for us.

Love, Hugs and Fun!

PS: Have to say we dig the surfer on the pouches as well!

first of all i adore capri sun!

my favorite healthy snack is usually Greek yogurt that i’ve put in the freezer for about 30 minutes…it’s like creamy rich ice cream, but healthier!

Fresh fruits and veggies are always best, but my little guy likes natural peanut butter on some whole wheat crackers or pretzels too.

Our healthy snack tip is to have fresh fruits and veggies already ready for them to grab and go.

My boys love Capri Suns. I try to keep fresh fruit sliced up and ready to eat on the go.

My healthy snack tip is to always have cold fruit on hand. That way when you get in from the heat, you can eat some frozen grapes or cold watermelon to feel refreshed!

We’ll have to try that! I keep cut fruit and veggie on hand all the time and that helps encourage healthy snacking.

I love the photo of them surfing, with the light shimmer.
I make a bowl of fruit salad to keep in the fridge all the time, with small diced fruit, fresh squeezed lemon or orange (to keep from oxidizing and to provide juice), and some peeled almonds (or cashews). I can also quickly put that in a small container with Greek Yogurt and granola to make a quick healthy parfait to-go. Drizzle honey or maple syrup for extra sweetness.
