Veggie and Fruit Juice Craze

Our office is experiencing a natural, non-sugar added, juice craze! Each staff member recently received a new Cuisinart® juicer and we’ve been juicing our favorite vegetables and fruits into delicious natural drinks. Eating or drinking natural vegetables and fruits helps our kids’ bodies and teeth grow and stay strong. It is very important to remember not to sip on juices (sugars and acid in juice can attack enamel), children need to drink the glass of juice as soon as possible. Have fun and try juicing vegetables and fruits for your kids. Below are a few of our favorite Cuisinart® juice recipes we’ve been enjoying.
