The One Ingredient You and Your Picky-Eater Can Agree On

In many households, come end of day, the dinner table transforms into the bargaining table. Tears are shed, food is thrown, and little compromise is made. Too often, we see our kids become ‘grazers,’ and only picking foods which happen to have a low nutrient count (Coincidence? We think not). That makes it harder to pick easy recipes that are still healthy and yummy for kids.

Although we can’t always get our kids to eat exactly what’s on their plate, there is another way to ensure they still get the nutrition they need: Florida Orange Juice, packed with the #Amazing5! In fact, one glass of Florida Orange Juice a day provides a daily recommended serving of fruits and gives your family a strong nutritional foundation, which includes:

  • Vitamin C: which contributes to a strong immune system.
  • Potassium: for muscle function, nerve transmission and electrolyte balance.
  • Folate: a water-soluble B vitamin essential for cell division and healthy red blood cells.
  • No added sugar: just the refreshing OJ flavour
  • And, a great taste your whole family will love.

When fortified, 100% orange juice is also a great lactose-free alternative to milk for calcium and vitamin D needs, with lots of other benefits that may help support brain and cognitive health and contribute to an overall healthy diet.

And 100% orange juice isn’t limited to the breakfast table. This Florida Orange Juice Sunburst Smoothie is a fun and fruity complement to any meal or snack and it’s easy to make. To pack in some more healthy goodness, add in a tablespoon of flax or chia seeds – rich in omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and fiber (the kids won’t even know it’s there).
