According to the American Heart Association, the average 4 – 8 year old eats 21 teaspoons of sugar per day! That is incredible! That’s one reason I am excited to tell you that Nestlé Juicy Juice has launched a brand new product that will help cut down on the amount of sugar kids consume. It’s called Juicy Juice Fruitifuls and it is an all-natural juice beverage that has 35 percent less sugar than regular juice, yet still delivers refreshing, full taste and a full serving of fruit (1/2 cup) in every juice box. It’s a delicious, easy way for parents to make a simple switch and reduce their child’s sugar intake. In fact, replacing a regular juice box with Fruitifuls every day, reduces annual sugar intake by 13 cups!
I feel strongly that we as parents, we need to provide good nutrition for our growing, active kids and I am happy to tell parents about Fruitfuls Replacement Challenge. Try replacing your kids’ sugary drinks with Fruitifuls for a week. I bet they don’t notice the difference in taste and you can count up the grams of sugar you have removed from their diet and see how quickly it adds up!
I was provided with some Fruitifuls samples and I took them to school for the classroom Holiday Party. The Fruitiful juiceboxes look just like normal ones and the kids didn’t notice anything different. The kids slurped down all the Fruitfuls and you can bet the teacher appreciated the lowered sugar intake!
