When I’m considering food and beverage choices for my girls, the first option I look for is organic. It’s important to me to give my girls the best available start in life and I believe many, many benefits come with choosing organic foods. When it comes to juice I look for two things: Sugar content & all natural ingredients. It’s so important to read the label and understand all of the ingredients on it!
Did you know that beverages labeled 100% fruit juice contain 90% of the sugar and calories of sugar-sweetened carbonated fruit drinks? A 12 oz. can of cola has 39 grams of sugar, and an 11.5 oz. can of 100% apple juice has 36 grams. I certainly was not aware of this as I’m sure many of you may not be! When you see it compared side by side, it’s a bit shocking, don’t you think? It’s not so shocking that they have found a link between childhood obesity and fruit juice.
Well parents you now have a safe healthy option in place of regular fruit juice! First Juice organic fruit & vegetable juice combine blends that are naturally lower in sugar. First Juice beverages contain 12g of sugar per 8 ounce serving compared to 27g of sugar for an equal serving of o100% apple juice! Research shows that it’s important to develop toddler’s taste buds early on and First Juice can help you do just that with less sugar and more healthy benefits. You can purchase First Juice in 4 different flavors including, apple-carrot, banana-carrot, blueberry-purple carrot and peach-purple carrot! However, there is one important question to answer… Is the juice yummy and will my little one drink it? Our taste testers (Milla age 4 and Siena age 1) say Yes, Yes, Yes! We tried apple-carrot and banana-carrot and our testers asked for more, more, more!
