We all drink plenty of 100% Florida Orange Juice in my house. I know it is a smart component to nutritious eating, and unlike some other healthy drinks or snacks, I don’t have to force my kids to drink it. One of my sons makes it even easier by absolutely loving it. If given a choice, he always goes for orange juice. In a world of sodas and fruit drinks with added sugar, thank goodness I can’t keep it in the fridge.
