Juice it up, Juice-Face!

No Comments Nutrition, Toddler

Here’s a quick tip I learned from my sister-in-law many years back:

Get your kids used to watered-down juice.  I’m pretty sure Garrett gets sugar from sources I’m not even aware of. Plus sugar pops up in foods where you don’t even expect it, like milk, crackers, and even peanut butter (which is why I buy organic peanut butter with NO sugar!).  From the time my kid could say “appa ju”, I’ve been giving him 40% juice and 60% water.  I do it with everything from appa ju to lemonade to orange juice… See the pattern here?  Of course, if we’re running out the door and I only have time to grab a juice box, then I forgive myself.  But he only gets 40% of his dessert that night.

Kidding!!  I’m not THAT big of a nutrition freak.
