Celebrating summer days with Capri-Sun

Since Libby started school, I’ve been acutely aware of how quickly the Summer holidays fly by. And this year, Lia starts school too. So now, more than ever, I’ve been trying to make the most of the long Summer days. The girls go to sleep late anyway, so we might as well make the most of it and have some fun.

Days in the sunshine

Have you seen the social media posts going around lately about 18 summers? They point out that we only get to spend 18 summers with our children. And that’s if they’re still at home (and want to spend time with you) until they’re 18. There’s something about the Summer that makes you want to make the most of the time you have with them. And you realise that these childhood days are all too short.

Last week, the girls had a rare day off after school activities. So, we packed a picnic and headed for one of our favourite places to enjoy the sunshine. After a stroll around the lake watching goslings swimming by, we set up Libby’s rounders kit and let the girls burn off some energy.

Hitting the ball doesn’t appear to be particularly easy for either of the girls at the moment, but they loved running around. And for me, that’s what days out are all about. They don’t have to cost a fortune and we don’t have to go somewhere exciting. Just a field, a picnic blanket and some simple games add up to make memories we’ll all look back on fondly.

A Capri-Sun Original picnic with 50% less sugar and nothing artificial

After tiring themselves out, the girls were ready to curl up on a picnic blanket with a drink. I’d managed to pack just one cool bag with enough food and drinks for all four of us. Capri-Sun is so convenient when you need to travel light. There’s a reason they’re still in the iconic pouch I remember from childhood, it’s the perfect way to carry drinks. Lightweight, compact and no need to chill them so they’re always ready to drink.

Recently though, Capri-Sun have changed their recipe. The new Capri-Sun original range, now with 50% Less sugar and nothing artificial still tastes just the same – I checked! Like the original, it doesn’t contain artificial colours or preservatives. What it does contain is a sweetener from a natural source called Stevia, which has allowed them to remove half of the sugar without losing any of the taste.

Which is your favourite flavour? Libby loves the blackcurrant and Lia prefers orange. In fact, Lia had both flavours in one day because we’d been for a picnic at lunchtime too. It’s good to know that we can take drinks that are better for you but still fun.
