With the kids going back to school, packing lunches is in full swing in our house. One staple product in every bag every single day is the juice box. It seems a no-brainer that juice is healthy and the perfect choice to pack in my son’s lunchbox. But, is it really?
Am I making a choice not to really question whether this is the best choice simply because they are so convenient? According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), a serving that is one hundred percent juice can be considered when tallying up your child’s recommended daily amount of vitamins like vitamin C. That means selecting the right product. Don’t get tricked into getting a juice “cocktail” that has added sugar.
