Do Your Boxes Make the Grades?

Brown-bagging it is a great way to give your kids nutritious foods you know they’ll enjoy. Make sure the beverages you’re sending make the grade, too. There’s a huge array of drink boxes on the market designed to appeal to kids – some are great, while others are little more than sugar water. Check the label to make sure you’re getting the best nutrition for your money.

  • Look for the words 100% Juice on the label – that means the product contains all fruit juice without added sugars. There are great-tasting blends of 100% fruit juices available designed to appeal to kids, like orange banana strawberry or white grape raspberry.

 

  • Skip products with names like Fruit Drink, Fruit Beverage, Fruit Punch, or Fruit Cocktail. They typically contain colored, flavored sugar water with very little real fruit juice. Some of these products boast about being fortified with vitamins, but they’re still not as nutritious as 100% fruit juice.

 

  • If you’re child doesn’t eat or drink three servings of dairy foods daily, take advantage of the new calcium fortified 100% fruit juice products available – they typically contain the same amount of calcium as a glass of milk.

 

  • For safety, make sure the word "pasteurized" is somewhere on the label. That means the juice has been heat treated to kill any harmful bacteria that may be present.

 

  • Freeze your juice boxes. Adding a frozen juice box to an insulated lunchbox will act like an ice-pack, helping to keep the rest of lunch cool and safe from bacteria growth.
