Sneaky fruit
Somehow juice in a box is just that much more appealing to kids. Or try some of these sneaky fruit recipes.

It’s important to teach your child good habits from an early age – healthy eating and recycling are two very important factors.

Many children don’t like eating real fruit, so a 100% fruit juice can replace two of the four daily fruit recommended servings. A convenient 200ml juice box is perfect for school lunchboxes or sports bags and a great way to give your child a daily dose of fruit.

Long-life fruit juice contains no preservatives, colourants, flavourants or added sugar and is rich in Vitamin C, making it 100% natural and one of the best beverage choices for children. Furthermore, Tetra Pak packaging is environmentally friendly because it has a very low carbon footprint and is 100% recyclable.

Try these recipes to increase your child’s daily intake of fruit in a fun way:

• Replace the liquid content in muffin dough with fruit juice.
• Replace the water content of jelly with your favourite flavour of fruit juice. Get the kids to make their own unique flavour combinations and pour into individual moulds.
• Make ice-lollies from fruit juice for a healthy and yummy alternative to sugar-laden treats. A great idea for birthday parties!
• Make a fruit punch for the warm summer days by mixing fruit juice with lots of ice and add some chopped fruit for colour and variation.
