Thank you to Fruit Shoot for sponsoring today’s post, I’m sharing our experience with the beverage, opinions are my own.

My kids love playing outside, which I love! We intentionally built a home on a larger lot because we wanted space in our backyard to have adventures. We play soccer, kids climb in the treehouse, jump on the trampoline, shoot hoops, do exercises, and they ride their bikes or roller skate all around. Summer months can be HOT in Texas, but the mornings and evenings, are quite enjoyable when they are cooler, so we take full advantage of that. It’s very important to stay hydrated, and I was very excited to try out the Fruit Shoot drinks. I’d actually never heard of it before, and they are quite delicious!  I found a few bottles just down the road at my local 7-11.

Since I’ve been reading labels more and paying more attention to what is going inside of mine and my families bodies, I was happy to learn these nutritional facts:

  • It contains real fruit juice
  • Natural flavors
  • No high-fructose corn syrup
  • No added sugars
  • clear liquid, no dyes

All of those facts make this a much healthier option than other fruit drinks.


Another great fact: it’s got a no-spill cap, which I actually love for ALL of my kids, especially when traveling in the car on road trips. We tried the Strawberry/Raspberry flavor, but there is also:  Orange, Apple, and Berry Burst

I’m sharing with you today that Fruit Shoot is hosting a ‘Have a Ball Stunt Hunt’ competition.  You share a short video, and some will be selected to have special effects added to their video to make it look like a Hollywood blockbuster!

I actually took a video of each of my kids, but uploaded the video of my 11 year old son on the treehouse, but sharing pictures of my daughters cartwheel and gulping here!


It’s easy to enter, I created a video on my phone, an uploaded/entered right from my phone! Click on the Fruit Shoot link to be taken to do the same.

    As a parent I can totally relate to that feeling of making sure our kids get the best food and drink which don’t contain all those nasty chemicals.

    Fruit shoot seems like a great choice for all parents who think like-wise as myself.

    Thanks for the great post!
