So now it is getting warmer outside and that means plenty of sunshine and citrusy fruit! Big ripe oranges just scream summer and while we love to eat them all year round, they have a special spot during summer.
Of course Florida is known for their oranges and the Florida Department of Citrus (FDOC) has a new hero for all the kids, Captain Citrus !
Captain Citrus helps teach kids the values of the Florida Citrus industry while encouraging them to make smarter decisions about what they put in their bodies.
Captain Citrus helps kids to eat better and shows them the importance of 100% Florida Orange Juice as a better choice and yummy refreshing drink!
What I love most is Captain Citrus teams up with Marvel’s Avengers who kids already know and love to defeat villains while making better and smarter food choices to help them stay strong!
Captain Citrus promotes the “Amazing 5” benefits of drinking 100% Florida Orange Juice (Taste, Vitamin C, Potassium, Folate and No Added Sugar) in his comic and online activities, both things kids already love!
When your kids visit the Captain Citrus website they can read two digital comic books, download some fun activity sheets, coloring sheets, crossword puzzles and so much more, sure to keep them busy during summer break!
Dean and I loved reading the Captain Citrus comics. With such great themes and messages he gets a fun comic while learning!
I like that it helps me teach him about making smarter choices in life and in nutrition so it is a win win!!
Dean can often not want to eat certain foods and by reading this comic he is encouraged to try to new things and I love that!! He wants to grow up big and strong like Captain Citrus!
If your kids love Captain Citrus as much as mine then you will surely want to enter this Facebook Contest.
