How do you help your kids get a full serving of fruit each day?

Posted by   + Show Post

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!


Tell us about your family. How do you help your kids get a full serving of fruit each day?

Quoting 3PinkRibbons:

We have fruit bowl that my daughters picked out and helped decorate.  When I go food shopping, each child gets to pick which fruit or veggies she wants to put inside the bowl.  Then we wash them together and put them in the bowl and it's there on the table for anyone who wants it.  Bananas don't last more than a day at my house, and clementines go even faster!  

That's a great idea. :)

my middle son loves apple slices with peanut butter. its easy to buy the individual packets for him to just grab.

Quoting LuLuRex:

I keep apple slices and other fruit in the bottom drawer of my fridge. My son likes the idea of getting his own snack so it's easy to get him to eat fruit!

I have never heard of that.  Is it like a fancy blender for smoothies?

It is by the makers of MagicBullet and BabyBullet. It takes whole fruits and vegetables and turns them into juice. Sort of like the Vitamax (I think it's called). This way none of the fruit or vegetable is being wasted and you get all the nutrients.
