Back to School With Sunraysia Organic - Giveaway Now Closed

Disclaimer: I was not paid for this post. I received some complimentary product for the Giveaway. All opinions are 100% my own.

The kids have now gone back to school. I am slowly getting get back into that familiar routine again. Early mornings, making lunches, nagging asking them about five times to find socks, brush hair, have they got their homework, library book etc., etc.

I like to make their lunches fresh for them in the morning. I make their sandwiches while they are eating breakfast. I get to chat with them about what they have on during the day, in between sips of my coffee to wake myself up a bit.

I am always on the lookout for healthy options for their lunchboxes. I try not to pack them too many processed snacks or sweet stuff. I like the idea of organic fruits and vegetables. Things that are grown without all the poisonous chemicals and sprays must be better for us and our children as well as better for the environment. 

Sunraysia Organic is 100% organic fruit juice with Nothing Added, Nothing Taken Away. It is all natural with no artificial colours and flavours, no chemical pesticides, no genetic modification, no added sugar or preservatives. There are four flavours to choose from – Apple, Apple and Blackcurrant, Orange and Tropical. Sunraysia want everyone to be able to enjoy organic products, not just a special few.

My favourite was the Apple. It tastes sweet and like it has just been juiced. They all taste fresh and just delicious. My kids loved all of them very much.

It comes in a handy and super tough, 200ml pouch with a straw attached. It is very easy to put it into a lunchbox or a picnic bag. It is great to enjoy frozen and very yummy as a slushy. The pouch is 100% recyclable.

    Served with sesame seed biscuit strips
    Or fruit kebabs, they look divine
