During the busy mom days of motherhood we all need some hacks up our sleeves, right? I’ve got sleep hacks, cleaning hacks and yep — even a sneaky snack hack!

Sometimes I feel like I’m surrounded by a houseful of chirping birds. “Mom, I’m hungry!” “Mom, I’m thirsty!” Those cries for nourishment can come as early as one hour after a hearty, homemade meal! But, of course, my kids fail to remember that they ate or drank just an hour ago!

I want to keep a clean fridge that doesn’t look like a disheveled mess, so no, I don’t let me kids have their run of the pantry or the fridge. However, I did come up with a sneaky snack hack that kept them happy — and me happy!

Kids love freedom when it comes to food. Freedom to snack, freedom to munch and freedom to choose. But, I also want them to make good choices in the midst of their freedom.
Enter sneaky snack basket!

Keeping a snack basket packed full of snacks and drinks keep the requests down for mom to once again pour another cup of milk or open another box of raisins. This way I can just say, “Grab a snack and drink out of the basket!” Now, why didn’t I think of this before?

In my basket I love to keep Capri Sun Organic juice drinks. It’s super easy because the juice drinks don’t need refrigeration and no cups need to be tossed in the dishwasher! It’s grab, drink and toss! Don’t forget it’s made with 66 percent juice and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. This gives kids the taste they love and parents a wholesome drink option that they can feel good about serving. It’s a win for everyone!

Plus, Capri Sun Organic, a certified USDA organic juice drink, contains one serving of fruit. Each pouch provides ½ cup fruit juice, which is one serving of fruit according to the U.S. Dietary Guidelines

In fact, I can even use the snack basket as a fun reward during the day for good attitudes, successful potty trips, helping with extra chores or just being plain cute.

The snack basket has been fun for my kids too. When we get home from the grocery store, they love restocking the basket. Plus, it makes grocery shopping more fun as they get to choose favorite items like Capri Sun Organic juice drinks to go in the basket.

So make your motherhood journey a little bit easier this week and create your own snack basket! Make sure you throw some Capri Sun Organic juice drinks in there. You’ll be so glad you did!
