Nutritionists List Health Benefits of Capri-Sun
Capri-Sun has launched a national consumer awareness campaign to reiterate its all-natural ingredient recipe as a healthier option that supports the long term growth and development of children.
According to a statement issued by the company, this was amplified nationwide with an effective media campaign on print publications, television, out-of-home, and digital, targeting parents who want the best for their children.
Leading on from this, a few health nutritionists were said to have lent expert opinion on the nutritional benefits of Capri-Sun Fruit Drink.
They emphasised the importance of Capri-Sun’s ‘Clean Recipe’ that ensures the use of only premium natural ingredients extracted from the best of fruits, thereby guaranteeing optimal retention of fruit contents as superior to chemically manufactured fruit drinks lacking in nutritional value.
A dietitian and nutritionist with Hopewell Nutrition, Kemi Lawal, stated that in the case of fruit drinks, using natural ingredients means that most nutrients from its original state will be present in the product.
“As nutritionists, we always recommend the consumption of food and drinks made with all-natural ingredients because of its numerous health benefits. Capri-Sun falls into this category for kids with its unique processing that ensures no artificial colours, no artificial sweeteners, flavours and preservatives,” she noted.
For Tope Brown, a Nutritionist, it is important for parents to keep a tab on what their kids consume as unwholesome fruit drinks could be detrimental to their wellbeing.
“Parents constantly tell us of their preference for fruit drinks made with all-natural ingredients for their kids. Unwholesome fruit drinks add no value and we encourage them to enable their kids develop a healthy relationship with fruit drinks made with “Clean Recipe” like Capri-Sun for their long term growth and development,” he added.
