Nestlé Juicy Juice- our family’s favorite brand of fruit juices, has recently introduced two products in the market that are designed to benefit children during different stages of their growth and development- Juicy Juice Brain Development and Juicy Juice Immunity.
If you’re particular about the kind of fruit juice you give your kids, I highly recommend these Juicy Juice products. My kids particularly like eating apples and grapes so we tried both Juicy Juice products in those flavors- which they both love!
*Juicy Juice Brain Development is the only children’s fruit juice beverage on the market currently offering DHA, which makes it a great first juice beverage choice for 1-2 year-olds. DHA acts as a building block for brain development during a child’s first two years of life,when their brains triple in size, and experts often recommend infant formula fortified with DHA for children who are not breastfeeding (breast milk is a natural source of DHA)2. During this important developmental phase, Juicy Juice Brain Development, which contains 16mg of DHA per serving, is designed to provide children who are old enough to drink juice (according to recommendations by the American Academy of Pediatrics)3 with continued DHA in their diet.
*Juicy Juice Immunity helps support a healthy immune and digestive system by offering beneficial nutrients, including zinc, vitamin C and prebiotic fiber. Both vitamin C and zinc are essential nutrients in a child’s everyday diet, as neither can be produced by the body and must be replenished on a regular basis. Fiber is also highly important in a child’s diet. In fact, according to The Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the dietary intake of fiber for children may be low enough to be of concern for children and adolescents.4 Children three to five years old consume only 11.4 grams of fiber a day on average, while the recommended amount is 25grams per day.5 Juicy Juice Immunity is one of the few juice beverages targeted towards children that contains prebiotic fiber. It is a good source of fiber and contains three grams per serving, which is equivalent to the amount found in a medium-sized apple.6
According to Dr. Yinka Davies, M.D., important nutrients such as DHA and prebiotic fiber are often difficult to incorporate into a child’s diet, particularly after a child has finished breastfeeding or drinking formula, and before they are able to eat a full spectrum of food. Juicy Juice Brain Development and Juicy Juice Immunity are additional resources for parents to incorporate much needed nutrients into their child’s diet, while still giving them the great tasting fruit juice beverages that they love.
Like all Juicy Juice products, Juicy Juice Brain Development and Juicy Juice Immunity are made with all-natural fruit juice and no added sugars, preservatives or artificial flavors or colors. They are also blended with filtered water (70 percent juice, 30 percent water), which results in fewer calories and a reduced amount of naturally occurring sugars. “Juicy Juice recognized the need for a beverage that accommodated mom’s priorities related to her child’s diet,” said Victoria Nuevo-Celeste, Nestlé Juicy Juice Marketing Manager. “Juicy Juice Brain Development and Juicy Juice Immunity offer excellent value for mom. They provide important nutrients while also helping mom control her child’s calorie and sugar intake.”
New Juicy Juice Brain Development is available in Apple and Grape flavors, and New Juicy Juice Immunity is available in Apple and Berry. Both beverages are sold in 33.8fluid ounce (1 liter) Tetra cartons and are now available in the juice aisle of grocery stores across the United States. Juicy Juice Brain Development and Juicy Juice Immunity are shelf stable products. Suggested retail price: $2.99.
