It might be a good idea to start squeezing some fresh organic oranges or juice some apples slices for your children. Read the link below to see why it would be safer and more nutritious.
It looks like the Environmental Law Foundation found small amount of lead in children's juice boxes. Find out which ones were not safe.
Here is a simple recipe you could use to replace your children's juice box.
8oz of fresh water
1/2 cup berries or orange (can use, mango, grapefruit, lemon, lime)
1/2 teaspoon or less of agave sugar (optional)
-Smash the fruit into pieces to infuse the water. Let is sit for 5-10 mins or more and strain into a sippy cup or regular glass. (picture is not accurate-juice needs to be strained)
Personal tip: I always dilute my juice. I prefer to have less sugar and I save money since the juice lasts 10x as long!
