Did you know that the average 4 – 8 year old eats 21 teaspoons of sugar per day?
That’s like eating the equivalent of more than 6 ½ lunch boxes filled with sugar per year! Nestlé JuicyJuice has introduced a brand new product that will help cut down on the amount of sugar kids consume. It’s called JuicyJuice 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 ensure kids get at least one of their daily recommended servings of fruit and a great, refreshing drink after the play-dates or after-school sports and activities kids love. As a mom, I am particularly concerned with how much sugar my kids are consuming, especially my youngest. He (unlike my oldest) would grab a sugary drink over a healthy drink any time. I didn't think I could convince him (he's four) to make healthier decisions on his own but since we've had Juicy Juice Fruitifuls, he loves grabbing a juice box, even when it's on the shelf next to the sugary drinks he's asked for in the past. This was a total win for us! It looks like my youngest is on the right path, if only I can find a way to keep these juice boxes on my shelf!!!

- 35% less sugar than regular fruit juices
- Juicy Juice Fruit Promise: Every box of Juicy Juice Fruitifuls provides one serving (1/2 cup) from the Fruit Group (source: USDA)
