35 Nutritious Summer Snacks for Kids from Capri Sun

Summer is here and it's time for lazy days by the pool, exciting adventures, and just enjoying being a kid! Sometimes, it can be hard to get our kids to eat well during the summer. Between trips to the park, playing in the pool, and time spent traveling, my kids are just too busy to sit down for healthy meals. That's why we try to get as many nutritious snacks as we can into them, so we don't have to worry if they are too busy playing to slow down for lunch!

And don't forget to stay hydrated!  My kids love Capri Sun Juice Drinks because they taste good and come in their favorite flavors. I love them because they are a wholesome alternative with no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives in their Capri Sun Super V Fruit and Vegetable Juice Drink, and Capri Sun 100% Fruit Juice (you can also find the traditional Capri Sun Juice Drinks). These are extremely handy when we're planning day trips because they can double as frozen pouches to keep our food cold and then they're ready to drink when we're ready for lunch!

As a company, Capri Sun is committed to helping the environment. Since 2008, more than 200 million Capri Sun pouches have been collected through Capri Sun’s partnership with TerraCycle and have been recycled and upcycled into durable goods.  In 2012, Capri Sun invested in creating a new box for Capri Sun pouches, remaking the iconic box with paperboard instead of cardboard. This change resulted in a 30 million pound reduction in packaging in 2012.
