How long do you think this company would stay in business?
How long before bunches of angry consumers sued them?
The problem is that in most cases the "real fruit juice" is
a minor ingredient, often only 5% or 10% of the total volume. The minimum
daily requirement of Vitamin C is far less than most experts feel is necessary for
good health, so that isn't really a good guide to use. Most of them are full
of dyes, artificial flavors, sugars and additives, and missing are the other vitamins,
antioxidants and various healthy compound in natural fruit.
So why do we drown our money in nearly useless and possible harmful colored, flavored artificially made fluids? Convenience, advertising, the kids like them, caffeine addiction, sugar craving, and overall they are cheaper. Like the fake lubricant we bought for our new car. And down the line we will pay for it.
What's the solution? Make a hard and fast rule: no more junk drinks on the grocery list. Let the kids spend their allowance on soft drinks if they want, but provide only healthy drinks at home. Buy some nice covered pitchers or juice containers for the refrigerator door and keep them filled. Buy some large foam-type thermos jugs for picnics, on the job, in the car or at sports events. Stock the refrigerator with single serving bottles or cans of favorite juices. Buy an electric citrus juicer if you don't have one. Blenders are useful; we especially like the stick blender for use in a large drinking glass or similar container. Make it really convenient to prepare and drink good stuff.
What should you drink?
How to get them to drink it? Have some nice glasses and lots of ice. Buy straws. Serve it to them on a pretty tray. Let them have lots of choice. If they balk and there's nothing else in the house, let'em have plain water. If they're really thirsty, they'll drink what's available!
All this may sometimes cost a little more money, but it is cash well spent, not thrown away on junk. Protect your personal motors! web tool
