Make a Healthy and Fun Lunch in a Snap With V8 Fusion
I try my best to serve healthy delicious lunches at home for my young children. But sometimes I am busy and do not have time to chop vegetables or bake whole grain bread. The Campbell Soup Company makes healthy lunches easier for busy moms with nutritious brands like, Pepperidge Farm, Campbell’s Soup and V8.
This afternoon my two-year-old and I fixed a healthy lunch with Pepperidge Farm Soft Honey Whole Wheat Goldfish Sandwich Bread, V8 Fusion Pomegranate Blueberry Juice, and Campbell’s Healthy Kids Condensed Soup.
The Goldfish Sandwich Bread contains 3 g of fiber, essential vitamins and minerals that kids need for growth and development and 18g of whole grains. They come pre-sliced so it is easy for little hands to pull apart. My son topped his sandwich with fat free mayonnaise, dark green leaf lettuce, fat free turkey breast and 100% natural cheddar cheese.
He also added Pepperidge Farm Whole Grain Goldfish Crackers and a bowl of Campbell’s Healthy Kids Condensed Soup. This lunch was nutritious, delicious and so quick and easy to put together even my two-year-old could fix his own lunch. I don’t know what he enjoyed most, making the sandwich or eating it!
I also know that my kids are getting the proper nutrition when they have a can of V8 Fusion with their lunch. Each 8 fl oz can of V8 Fusion Juice provides a 1/2 cup of vegetables and 1/2 cup of fruit. The USDA MyPyramid recommends a daily intake of 2- 1/2 cups of vegetables and 2 cups of fruit for a 2,000 calorie diet.
Campbell Soup Company (NYSE:CPB), the maker of V8® juices, will help make it even easier for people to increase their daily servings with the introduction of two new varieties of its V8 V-Fusion® vegetable and fruit juice: Concord Grape Raspberry and Concord Grape Raspberry Light.
The flavors are a new twist on a classic family favorite 1 – blending grape juice with the juice of apples, raspberries, sweet potatoes, carrots and other fruit and vegetable juices for a great-tasting grape taste – with a twist. Plus, each 8-ounce glass of V8 V-Fusion 100% juice provides one full serving of vegetables and one full serving of fruit. V8 V-Fusion Concord Grape Raspberry and Concord Grape Raspberry Light are available in 46-ounce bottles, and V8 V-Fusion Concord Grape Raspberry will be available in 8-ounce slim cans starting in July.
“We’ve been told since we were kids to eat our vegetables, but people still aren’t getting enough.” said Dale Clemiss, Vice President, Beverages, Campbell Soup Company. “V8 V-Fusion juices offer a delicious, convenient way to help people get the vegetable servings they need with the fruit taste they want in a range of varieties and sizes.”
