Fantastic Friday Juice to Kick-Off Your Kid’s Weekend

SONY DSCIf the end of your week correlates with family fun fests, plenty of play dates, or sleepovers at Grandma’s house, then you might agree that your kid’s nutrition lacks in quality come Friday-Sunday. Kick-off your kid’s weekend with a vegetable juice powered with essential nutrients and antioxidants like lycopene, vitamin C, and potassium.

One little helper couldn't keep her hands off the goods.

Simply juice 2 juicy red tomatoes, a green bell pepper, and a cup or two of purple cabbage.

If you can, go for organically or home-grown produce. I like to shop farmer’s markets and local farmstands for the freshest, least modified selections. And of course, to build your child’s interest in drinking the juice, give your little helper an important job, like gathering the ingredients, washing the vegetables, or pouring the delicious drinks.
