I’m a mum of two fussy eaters and sometimes it can be very challenging to make their meals and snacks tasty and nutritious at the same time. Most of the days we have to resort to smoothies and fruit juices to make sure they have their 5 pieces of fruits and vegetables a day. And sometimes we don’t even get to 5, just 3… On those days, it’s hard not to stress about their eating habits and not to feel guilty about it. I have a few tricks I use to get them to eat more vegetables and fruits: making sandwiches with hummus instead of butter, making ice lollies with frozen fruits and a little hidden veggies or making pizza sauce with lots of veggies blended into the tomato purée. As any mum struggling with picky eaters or children with sensory processing disorder, I too do a lot of extra miles to feed my kids with healthy food.
Fruit juices are a life saver in this matter too: a cup or a small box a day covers one portion out of the recommended daily five. They are especially handy when out and about. Hydration is very important and children are normally too busy to stop and have a drink. One thing though is important when you give fruit juice to the children: make sure it’s actually healthy, so it doesn’t contain refined sugar. Refined sugar is not only bad for anyone’s health – especially when it’s unnecessarily added to fruit juices – let alone small children.
We’ve just been trying out Appy Kids Co juices, made specifically for children. They use ethically sourced premium ingredients from fairly contracted farmers (with a guaranteed price per kg for the season), the products are Vegan Approved by the Vegetarian Society. Appy Kids Co uses renewable resources for their packaging. As well as using recyclable materials, they also give back by replanting trees.
We tested the Peppa Pig range, (natural ingredients and no GMOs, gluten, added sugars, or artificial preservatives) and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pouch range (low calorie juices with added vitamins packed in convenient pouches). They both have been very popular, the children really liked them. They absolutely loved the fruity school bars too, I’m going to have to order some more of these for them!
Even Winnie the Pooh enjoyed it:
Appy Kids Co’s range is available online by Ocado or Amazon and in Wholefoods, Tesco and other supermarkets.
Appy Kids Co kindly offered a huge bundle of 40 juices (4 boxes of TMNT and 4 boxes of Dora) as a prize for our giveaway.
