First Juice Review

First Juice Organic Fruit & Veggie Variety Pack, 32-Ounce Bottles (Pack of 6)

First Juice is an organic fruit and vegetable juice beverage specifically with kids in mind. It is made from organic produce and much lower in sugar than most juice products. They have 4 varieties of juice available: apple & carrot, banana & carrot, blueberry & purple carrot, and peach & purple carrot. You can purchase the juice in 8 oz reusable containers that have a no-spill top and a 32 oz. bottle. Both containers are BPA-free and recyclable. The smaller one is great for on-the-go and the larger works for home use and refills.

We got to sample the apple, banana, and blueberry drinks. My son enjoyed these. And I felt really good about giving my child something that was good for him. I tried all by the banana one. (I’m not a fan of banana in any juice type drinks.) They we pretty flavorful but without the overly sweet flavor that you get from most fruit juices. I think the vegetables in them balance the sweetness.

First Juice was recently acquired by Lifeway Foods, Inc. They are the leading US supplier of healthy Kefir beverages. They are happy to have a product that caters to children now. And this is a new step into the non-dairy-based health beverages for the company. You and your children will enjoy these juices. And they are very healthy, so you’ll be doing something great for your body and your kids’ bodies as well.

Buy It:  First Juice is available at more than 300 Babies R Us and Toys R Us store and now also at Whole Foods Market, Ralphs, Diapers.com and Amazon.com.
