Ensuring your kids get a full serving of fruit each day can be tough but it doesn't have to be. We gave 50 CafeMom members one package of Juicy Juice Fruitifuls and asked them to try it with their family. With 35% less sugar than regular juice and all natural ingredients Juicy Juice Fruitifuls helps moms give their kids a full serving of fruit with every serving!

Here are some great responses from our CafeMoms!


My girls had the cherry flavor and said it was really yummy. I like the fact that it has less sugar and still tastes just as good as the others.

My son took Juicy Juice Fruitifuls to school:) He loved them! I love the 35% less sugar! This will now be something we buy OFTEN!!

My oldest liked the apple juice and my youngest liked the fruit punch.  DH even liked them!  I admit, I tried one and was pleasantly surprised at the mild taste, not overpowering, they were very good."

I give them access to fresh fruit and they eat it. I froze some grapes for dessert and my 7 yr. old picked them over ice cream.

He has free full access to fresh fruit whenever he wants, I also use it in cooking, as well as making smoothies and frozen fruit pops , variety is keep, especially with a picky eater like my son.

What a neat Influencer Program!  We buy a lot of apples and carrots because they last.  There are tons of tomatoes in our garden, and we freeze or can extras.

They get way more than 1 serving a day.  At least 2-3.  And about 4-5 servings of veggies.

We have her drink Apple and eve Fruitables which have 2 servings of fruit/veggies in them.  She also loves fresh fruit like apples.

How? Well, I open the fridge, or go to the fruit bowl and either hand them some or cut it up for them. They have free range of the fruit bowl for when they want a snack, so they get those themselves actualy. They eat probably 3-4 fruits a day, plus veggies, so its never been an issue or I've never had to try "sneak" fruit/veggies into them.

 Pretty much just leaving it out and visable does the trick in my house. :)

Quoting balagan_imma:

We do frozen grapes & frozen blueberries. My five year old would eat those alone all day if I'd let him. lol

We also do smoothies. Cut up fruit, water, and a little crystal light lemonade packet, throw it in the blender & you're done!
