Healthy Lunchboxes With Capri-Sun The Juice Drink

Shopping for us is a family experience, we usually go to Tesco’s on a Sunday mornings before it gets too busy. The day we went to do our normal food shop, we also did our  #CollectiveBias shop, and we told our eldest Oli exactly what we were doing. I explained the #CapriSunSchool campaign and how we will be buying a few boxes to see us through the next few weeks as we go on days out and return to school. This was received with squeals of delight, both he and his brother are Capri Sun fans, and they are often our choice of picnic drink.

We played a game of hunt the juice drink aisle which Oli found rather fun and kept him entertained as we did our shopping, I need to remember this ‘hunt the product’ game next time we go shopping. As you can see the Capri Sun was easy to find and they had a wide selection to choose from with all the flavours available. They are simply perfect for lunchboxes, days out, parties or after school.

Of course, as a mum of 3 on a budget, I was pleased to see the Capri Sun was on offer, always a bonus before the school term and we happily stocked up for the next few weeks. They don’t take up much room which is ideal when I like to store them in a fridge on a warm day.


My kids adore fruit and all things fruit flavoured; I have no problem whatsoever when it comes to giving them five a day. Our lunch boxes are fun fruit galore especially when you include a great tasting Fruit Juice drink in a fun pouch.

The internet is bursting with healthy lunch box ideas, and we use this as our guide when it comes to preparing lunch boxes for both school and day trips.

We loved the ideas it suggested so much that we took the idea of a movie lunchbox and applied it to one of our evening activities. What child doesn’t love a movie accompanied by snacks? Bringing it to the sofa lunchbox style just adds to the fun and excitement. Dylan’s favourite bagel is the one filled with raisins, so we substituted the plain one for this. The great balance of refreshment and fun was accomplished by adding a Capri Sun to the mix.

  • Snack
    Plain popcorn
  • The main event
    CD bagel – bagel filled with soft cheese and salmon with cress Cherry tomatoes
  • Fruit
  • Drink
    Capri-Sun 200ml 100% Orange Juice
