 Must-Haves for a Family Day on the Go

We do a lot of activities together as a family. We are very close and we love spending time together.

No family tradition is harder to execute than when we go to a local festival together. We are on the go a lot and we have to work together to make certain that we have everything that we need including drinks, snacks and more. Every kid in the family has a job and something to do in order for us to leave the house for the day.

Must-Haves for a Family Day on the GoWhen packing for the day, we always add Mott’s ® to our bag. Mott’s 100% Juice has been a part of our lives since I was a little kid. My parents used to serve Mott’s so this was a fun, family tradition that I carried on with my children. Since they could first have juice, all three of my children were drinking Mott’s 100% Apple Juice.

I am thrilled to partner with Mott’s and Dollar General to share a new flavor and to show you how my family gets ready for a busy day on the go.

I am a mango lover. There is just something about that perfect fruit that makes me eat one a few times per week. My family likes mango just as much as I do so I am always on the lookout for quick and healthy mango beverages. Mott’s 100% Apple Mango Juice is a better-for-you beverage that kids and adults love. Mott’s 100% Apple Mango Juice is the perfect summer staple, a quick and healthy beverage – plus the 8oz 6-pack bottles are available at Dollar General for the lowest price around, $2.75.

Get Mott’s at your local Dollar General in these varieties:

My kids and I are loving the Mott’s 100% Apple Mango juice. It tastes delicious and it’s packed full of apple and mango flavor. You seriously cannot go wrong with Mott’s.

    It sounds like you have thought of everything. We actually leave a lot of these things in a bag in our trunk most of the time.

  2. We keep a “Go” bag in our trunk all the time just for this sort of thing. We love to just take off for a few hours at a moments notice. We’ll have to add some Mott’s to the mix!

  3. You had me at 100% juice! That is all I will buy for my son. And we love Mott’s!

  4. Lynne B

    I always had a kids “emergency” bag in the car when they were younger. Because you never know! lol.

  5. Love this handy list of essentials! I grew up with Mott’s and appreciate that my children can savor the same quality products I enjoyed.

  6. Pam

    We love Mott’s apple juice and applesauce. My granddaughter really likes the juice and drinks it a lot.

  7. Cacinda

    It looks like you have everything you could ever need! Lots of fun and yummy treats.

  8. There is nothing like getting out and about and I am a real fan of Apple juice. I am going to have to keep a look out for Motts in store.

  9. I love going on hikes with the kids! It’s a really nice way to just spend time together. I think it’s really nice that you bring Mott’s along with you. Their juices are great and I love that their apple juice is 100% pure!

  10. Jeanine

    Sounds awesome. We are huge fans of motts apple juice in our house so this would be ideal for us too! Perfect for when we head to different parks in the city this summer!

  11. Jennifer Van Huss

    I love Mangos too!! It is really hard to find a juice that infuses that flavour! I’ll have to keep my eye open for Motts Apple-Mango! We are a huge Motts family!

  12. I would die without my large beach bag. Well, maybe not die, but you know what I mean! We love Mott’s. Their apple juice is always in our fridge.

  13. Our Family World

    I love Motts since I was a child. It is really 100% apple juice! My kids love it as well and our house is never without it. I agree, this is a great drink to take along in hiking and other outdoor activities. Truly refreshing!

  14. You have a great list of things to pack in your bag. We also have a similar checklist. Sweet fruit juices and power drinks are always a must-have especially during summer.

  15. I love these juices and buy them for myself sometimes, LOL!! These are great for on the go families!

  16. Claudia Krusch

    Motts Apple juice is a family favorite. I always pack some when we are on the go. I can feel good giving it to my kids.

  17. My family loves Motts products, especially their 100 percent apple juice. I always make sure I stock up on this.

  18. Victoria Heckstall

    I totally love this juice! It’s really my choice, it has a natural taste from original fruit.

  19. I grew up on Motts Apple Juice! I am happy they are at Dollar General now!

  20. Jeni Hawkins

    This is such a great list! Whenever we go out we definitely make sure we bring drinks that are good for us and not full of sugars.

  21. Rebecca Swenor

    Family days are very important for any family. This is a great list of must haves for a family day bag on the go. Mott’s products really do come in handy with drinks and snacks. Thanks for sharing the list.

  22. Brianne

    My little one loves apple juice. And Mott’s has always been our fav brand!

  23. Kathy

    I love all of Mott’s products. They’re all so good. I really love their apple juice. It’s one of the only brands I’ll get when I want some apple juice.

  24. These are all definitely important. We keep a box in the back of the car with most of this stuff for those just in case times.

  25. That’s a great list! I used to keep a bag in the back of our vehicle with just such essentials. When my son was younger, we used to take a lot of impromptu trips, not so much anymore.

  26. I love apple juice but I rarely drink it due to the calories. I remember my mom picking up Motts Apple juice when we were growing up.

  27. rika

    My kids love Mott’s products! We just bought some for our next road trip. The apple sauce is their fave!

  28. I love Mott’s apple juice since I was a little kid. It’s still the only apple juice brand my family drinks.

  29. I’m not an apple juice drinker. My kids love these though and we carry them everywhere.

  30. Tamra Phelps

    We are big fans of Mott’s juices here, too. My nephews grab it when they come in from school every day.

  31. This is a great list! One thing I would add that is a must for our household is a roll of toilet paper. Nature walks generally have outhouses and they don’t always have toilet paper, sure you can substitute other things, but less face it, no one wants to do that!

  32. Those are definitely the perfect size! I need to stock up on these for the summer, especially for our Florida heat!

  33. TColeman

    These are seriously such good ideas for when you are on the go. We love Motts too since it is good for you and not too high in sugar.

  34. We carry stuff like this when we go on day trips too!  Usually we have a snack and some juice!  We have always loved Motts! 

  35. Amy Desrosiers

    I am going to bring some of these Mott’s juices with me on my road trip next month. They are the perfect sized bottles to bring on the go.

  36. These are definitely the right things to bring along. The Apple Mango juice must be super tasty. I love that combo!

  37. Yum, my family loves apple juice! Great thing to have with you on a family outing. 

  38. I love those travel sized bottles of Mott’s juices. They fit nicely into our travel plans when we pack the food and drinks to go.

  39. That mango juice is calling my name. I, too, am a big fan of mango. My husband is not, so he would keep his hands off this drink if I get it. That might be the best thing about this.

  40. Love these tips! We are planning lots of trips this summer. These are really great tips we can use.

  41. That is one well packed on the go bag. Apple and mango sound like a delicious flavor combination.
