Fruit Shoot Launches “It’s My Thing” Campaign (Plus Enter To Win $100 Visa Card)


Fruit Shoot is launching a new campaign called, It’s My Thing, that encourages children to indulge their adventurous sides and let their personalities shine. I just love that! With three kids of my own, I know a thing or two about what they have to deal with in today’s society.

Fruit Shoot

There is so much pressure on kids to grow up faster, progress at a certain rate, fit into routines and live up to expectations. You know what? I also feel pressure as a parent to live up to certain expectations.

It’s nice to see that Fruit Shoot wants to support kids just being kids and doing their thing, whatever that may be!

Defining Passion In My Children

Each of my children have their own “thing” and I love them for it! Natalie is the singer and dancer. She is always performing – whether it’s literally on stage during her summer concert camps or just outside while hanging with friends.

My son, Liam, is big on videos games and soccer. If he isn’t outside kicking the ball with friends, he’s inside … virtually kicking a ball with friends. No, really.

And the baby of the house, Caleb, is someone who wants to gets his hands on everything. He wants to run and kick and scooter and draw and build and climb and leap and …. keep mommy on her toes. At four years old, we aren’t sure what his passion is just yet, but we are excited to watch him grow into it.

Whatever it will be, I know it will involve the outside and getting dirty. That’s for sure! No matter where we go, there’s a drink that we like to take along for the ride.

With its no-mess, resealable bottle, Fruit Shoot gives my kids the freedom to ëdo their thingí during the summer and beyond. Fruit Shoot is made with no artificial flavors, real fruit juice, no high fructose corn syrup, and offers varieties made with real sugar, as well as no sugar added


A Family On The Go

As a family that is constantly on the go, all these qualities and more – tied up inside a durable, resealable bottle and not a messy pouch – gives my family the freedom it needs to explore. If you follow my blog, you know that I am someone who loves to travel.

We are the family that wakes up on a Saturday and decides that a hike is in order! Or maybe even a quick trip down to DC. There are no borders when it comes to fun for this household.

We live a fearless life and we want our children to do the same. The last thing we need is a mess stopping us in our tracks.

The Fruit Shoot bottle outperforms juice drinks in pouches thanks to the resealable cap. It’s mom tested and kid-approved – over and over again!!!  Believe me, all my kids enjoyed them.

Grab And Go Adventures

Grab and Go Adventures are so much fun! I love when we don’t give them very much thought. Usually, we just pick up a local newspaper or magazine, read an article about a festival that’s going on nearby and then hit the road. Stocking up the car is simple enough – as long as you have the right supplies on hand.

I like products that don’t need accessories. For example, drinks that don’t need straws! Thank you, Fruit Shoot! One less thing for me to worry about. Straws can cause messes, spills, and get lost. The resealable cap cuts down on the mess and lasts longer.

New flavor: Fruit Punch!

I’m excited to announce that there is a brand new flavor on the market! Fruit Shoot Fruit Punch is here and is oh so good! To find the nearest retailer that offers this flavor, click here and visit the store tracker. This new flavor still has all the great benefits that you’ve grown accustomed to

  • No artificial flavors
  • Made with real fruit juice
  • No high fructose corn syrup
  • Varieties made with real sugar, as well as no sugar added
  • Ergonomically designed for your childís hand
  • Re-sealable sports cap

A Brand With History

Fruit Shoot is already a very popular juice drink for kids in the U.K. and has existed there since 2000. In the UK, two bottles of Fruit Shoot are sold every second!  WOW! Talk about brand loyalty!  Love that.

I always like to see what my fellow moms are doing over the pond and I know why they lean on Fruit Shoot. Easy, tasty, and no artificial flavors. Win-Win-Win.

  1. As a mama of 5, each of my children have their own personalities as well as what they take pride in. My DD14 is such a ambitious planner, she already has goals to accomplish within the next 5 years, and is academically excelled. My DS11 is my sports fanatic and my comedian. My DD9 loves to dance and sings beautifully with our church choir. My DS8 is my Casanova and loves public speaking. What can I say he loves a crowd. And my little lady DD10 months own is growing up faster than words can express. She’s playing catch with her older siblings I guess. Thank you for allowing this Proud Mommy to gush about her babies!

So we’re starting both piano lessons and soccer shortly to see if this truly is her thing and if not we’ll keep helping her to look for it!

    I think what defined my kids was the idea that they could and would try anything and then make up their own minds whether they liked it or not. When younger, they loved playing outdoors with the other kids in the neighborhood. They rode bikes, played kickball, hid and seek, and all the other games that seemed to go by the wayside in these current days. Kids were more carefree thirty years ago!
