Encouraging Imaginative Play with Fruit Shoot

This post is sponsored by Fruit Shoot, but all opinions are my own.  Thanks Fruit Shoot for sponsoring such a fun campaign!

We are a pretty active family and want to be sure to keep our kids active and healthy.  We love to get outside and although they are still very young, we are already getting them involved in team sports and being active.  We also like to keep them semi healthy, I say semi, because we are definitely a family that loves our french fries and ice cream, but all in balance.  Our oldest is almost 3 and is a very picky eater, however, beverages are something we have kept pretty healthy and we are proud of that.  She drinks mostly water and milk and until she was 2, never even tried a "juice box".  She does enjoy a glass of orange juice and occassionally has juice at a party or special event.  

When I learned about Fruit Shoot, I thought, "wow, this is great!".  It comes in fun colors and yummy flavors, but the liquid is clear, no fructose corn syrup ... and a spill-proof cap- Score!  It is the perfect size and a great treat to take on the go.  Perfect for those Saturday games, outdoor adventures in your back yard or at the park, or for those long car rides.  I love that the company is focusing on fun and adventure with your kids.

Fruit Shoot comes in 4 flavors including Orange, Apple, Berry Burst and Strawberry/Raspberry and is also available in low sugar versions.

You are invited to capture and share the exciting imagination of your child by filming a short video of your child’s tricks and stunts with a Fruit Shoot bottle and a ball of your choice. The winning video each week will get a treatment in a similar style to the video featured on the campaign landing page! Entrants will receive a free bottle of Fruit Shoot when entering the contest. AND, if you buy 6 bottles of Fruit Shoot in-store, you will also receive a Waboba ball!  Check out my video here:
