FairPrice products keep stomachs filled, hands clean when braving the elements
The September school holidays are over, but planning outdoor bonding activities for the whole family does not have to end.
On sunny days, cycling, camping and barbecuing are perfect activities for parents with young children, couples and friends.
FairPrice has the essentials to embrace the great outdoors and keep stomachs filled.
What else is more important than food to keep energy levels high when you are having fun?
Trans fat-free and halal certified, FairPrice Instant Cup Noodles ($1) come in five different flavours - chicken, seafood, tom yum, mushroom and curry - and is convenient for those who want a quick meal.
Made from 100 per cent fresh potatoes and blended with premium barbecue seasoning, FairPrice Barbecue Potato Chips ($1.30) are so crispy and irresistible that one packet will never be enough.
The potato chips are available in four more flavours - original, chilli, sour cream and onion, and hot and spicy - and are trans fat-free and halal.
If you are into healthy snacks, the FairPrice Baked Macadamia with Almonds ($5.65) is 25 per cent lower in sodium compared to regular ready-to-eat nuts.
Trans fat-free and naturally cholesterol-free, this has the Healthier Choice logo.
You will also need some beverages to wash down the grub and keep you cool in the heat and humidity.
FairPrice has recently brought in Martens Beer ($14.50 for six cans), the first beer being launched under FairPrice Private Labels.
This is brewed in Belgium. The alcohol content is 4.5 per cent and is suitable for all beer lovers. It comes in a pack of six cans or in a carton of four packs.
For the teetotallers, FairPrice's new Life Nano-Artesian Alkaline Water is part of the recent alkaline water trend, with a pH value of 8.5. You can purchase loose bottles ($1.25) or a carton of 24 bottles ($26.90).
For barbecue lovers, HomeProud BBQ Charcoal ($4.90) is perfect for you as it ignites easily and maintains high temperatures.

They use Japanese technology and can protect power for up to seven years.
To ward off unwanted guests like outdoor pests, FairPrice Deet-Free Insect Repellent ($2.80) protects you from mosquitoes and bugs effectively for up to eight hours.

After all the play and picnicking is over, FairPrice Anti-Bacterial Wipes help get rid of dirt and germs quickly when you clean yourself.
The wipes leave your skin moisturised, fresh and soft.
Each wipe is strong and has a pleasant scent, with a pH-neutral mild cleaning solution containing aloe vera.
