Most children in the US are out for Holiday break already. Even though they’re super pumped for Christmas day (or whichever holiday your family celebrates), you will often hear one of two phrases – “I’m bored!” and “I’m thirsty/hungry!”. It’s inevitable. I know. I’ve been there myself as a kiddo. With all the excitement and anticipation that the holidays bring, parents might not make the best choices when it comes to beverages. I’m attempting to break a habit that seems to get passed on from one generation the the next in my family (that being sodas).
Isabella naturally gravitates towards juice, however…not all juice is nutritious, contrary to popular belief. Many juices contain artificial ingredients and a ridiculous amount of sugar. I recently stumbled upon an old favorite brand of mine – Juicy Juice. They offer these fun little juice boxes that contain 35% less sugar and an entire serving of fruit!
Isabella is a juice fanatic. She probably drinks more than she should. I was happy to hear that Juicy Juice Fruitifuls have 35% less sugar in every box. This leads to a healthier juice and healthier children. As Isabella is gaining more and more independence, she enjoys drinking out of straws. Juicy Juice Fruitifuls has the perfect amount of juice in every box, and Isabella can carry it around while she’s playing (with supervision).
We all know that two year old’s are chock full of energy. This means they need to stay hydrated. With Juicy Juice Fruitifuls, I can rest easy knowing my daughter is receiving all the hydration and nutrients that a beverage should contain. She looks forward to her juice boxes during lunch time and always comments on how “yummy” and “dell-ish-ush” (delicious) they are! We decided to go with the Orange Strawbana Blast, as it has two of Isabella’s favorite fruits (strawberries and bananas). She gulped it down rather quickly!
I’ve been lucky with parenthood, as Isabella enjoys eating fruit. However, sometimes I’m not able to get to the store and purchase fresh fruit for my household. Each juice box of Juicy Juice Fruitifuls contains one serving (1/2 cup) of fruit! In addition to a whole serving of fruit, they include no added sugar, sweeteners, preservatives, or artificial flavoring.
Juicy Juice Fruitifuls come in four different thirst-quenching flavors:
- Apple Quench
- Berry Cherry Burst
- Orange Strawbana Blast
- Punch Splash
