Fun Fruity Drinks for Kids – healthy, natural & tasty πŸ’œβ€οΈπŸ’™πŸ’šπŸ’›

November 25, 2015

We were at the dentist with the kiddies recently. A regular visit to check their teeth is always the best wake up call for minimising the amount of sugar we consume on a daily basis. The kids teeth were fine thank goodness but I know we could all eat less ‘hidden’ sugars.

You’ve probably all seen in the media how limiting sugar is so important to all our healths, kids and adults alike. But its the sugars we aren’t aware of that are the worst. I believe we have a healthy diet as a family on the whole, of course we have the odd sweet treat but I try to limit the amount of refined sugar used as much as I possibly can.

Sweetened drinks are a big culprit in the hidden sugars we consume on a daily basis. But it is a difficult predicament to be in as a parent, the kids want to consume juices but we have to pick from what’s on offer very carefully.

Appy Drinks 

 

I recently discovered the ‘Appy’ range of drinks aimed towards children. It was the pretty cartons which drew me in at first, a great range of fruity drinks to choose from, with Peppa Pig, Ninja Turtles, Sponge Bob Square Pants, Dora the Explorer on the cartons. The juices are just yummy with fruity flavours to choose from – Apple & Blackcurrant, Orange & Pineapple, Tropical Fruit. A spill free straw and the perfect size for lunch boxes.


For me the most important factor would be what’s inside the pretty cartons. I was not disappointed. Appy drinks pride themselves on using only natural ingredients, such as stevia, to sweeten their drinks.

So what is Stevia? 

I recently read online that Stevia is “the natural sweetener from the stevia plant with no calories, it does not influence the metabolism and it protects your teeth. As stevia leaf extract is up to 200-300 times sweeter than sugar, small amounts of stevia leaf extracts are sufficient for satisfying your children’s desire for the sweet tasting goods.”

Verdict –

My boys absolutely loved these drinks! You know it’s a hit when your kids finish the whole carton and keep sucking on the straw to get the last drops of juice out!
