Captain Citrus Twitter Party
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Florida Department of Citrus forIZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
Alright, so I think I’ve mentioned a few (thousand) times that I’m the “geeky” one and both my family and I are HUGE superhero fans. Since we are also a Florida family, we were super excited to learn that the Florida Department of Citrus (FDOC) is introducing a new hero to America! Unlike some other cheesy characters that are sometimes developed to try and relate to kids, Captain Citrus looks like an ACTUAL superhero. Probably since he was designed as part of Marvel’s Avengers Assemble characters.
I’m already a big fan of Captain Citrus , because he has both the “cool” and “fun” factor for kids, while also supporting moms in our mission to get our kids to develop healthy eating habits. As we moms know, kids can be so picky about what they eat, so having a superhero on our side sure can’t hurt!
Spreading the message to our kids has also been made easy with The Captain Citrus website, which offers three digital comic books. As soon as I showed them to my 6 year old daughter and 10 year old son, they ran off to curl up with the iPad and devour the three different editions. They were thrilled to read new Avengers adventures and I used it as a way to start some meaningful dinner conversation. My son is in the middle of trying out for a sports team and we talked about how Captain Citrus realizes that although he has special tools, his power to use them comes from inside. We also talked about how important it is to make healthy choices when it comes to what we eat so we feel good and have energy for all the things we love to do.
In addition to the digital comics, there are also downloadable activity sheets, coloring pages, crossword puzzles and much more! As summer has arrived and the kids are out of school, having some fun activities ready and waiting is so helpful, and even better that they come with a positive message.
Now that it is summertime, you know what else can come in handy to keep the kids busy? CASH! Summer attractions, movie tickets, craft sets, pool toys and all the other costs that can come with summer fun for kids can sure add up fast. So, here is a great way to learn a little bit more about Captain Citrus and all the ways he can help your kids develop healthy eating habits as he continues to spread the “Amazing 5” benefits of drinking 100% Florida Orange Juice through his comic and online activities: Taste, Vitamin C, Potassium, Folate and No Added Sugar.
