100% Juice Is A Good Way To Add Nutrients

Serving juice to your family can be an easy way to help picky eaters get the nutrients they need. Use your calculator to find the best price per ounce. (I always keep one handy inside the front of my coupon pack.) Always buy 100% juice. Don't waste money on fruit beverages that are mostly water. You can always add water at home. Adding water cuts down on calories and is a healthy way to serve juice.


Don't shy away from fruit juices with vegetable juice added. These are nutrient rich. You can always dilute them with apple juice for serving. Apple juice is always a thrifty purchase. Use it to mix with other more expensive juices to make premium blends.

Forego the convenience of juice in a bottle. Don't buy individual servings. Make your own.

Consider buying frozen juices that you mix in a pitcher. These juices are usually less pricey.

Fruit juice at any price is always a good buy because it helps one maintain good health. Kool Aid and other sugary colored water mixes are never a good buy. They may be cheap, but are only detrimental to health. We want to help build healthy bodies to lesson expensive trips to the doctor and to the hospital. Drinking 100% fruit juice helps stave off those more expensive alternatives.

Fruit juices are mostly sugar and calories, not much better than soda or koolaide. It is better to eat whole fruit--more nutrients, more fiber, less sugar and calories.

Sorry, but too many parents are feeding juices instead of water to kids. The acid in the juice erodes the chewing surfaces of the teeth. It isn't cavities (the sugar in the juice promotes that) instead it's more like potholes, not just flat abrasion.


I remember working for a dentist and it happened to his own son. The combination of juice all day and grinding his teeth at night took his back teeth down by a third. When you look up how much actual nutrient is in juice versus the sugars and acid, it's expensive water.
