I am constantly trying to find things for my kids to drink that are healthy and don't have a ton of calories or fake sugar. We do a lot of milk and water, but that gets old. My four-year-old usually asks for juice. So, when I saw this new drink for kids, I had to post about it to see if any of you have tried it. It's called Froose. It supposedly tastes like a smoothly, but is made out of organic brown rice.
Denise Devine came up with the idea because she wanted to give her own kids a healthy alternative to the ever-popular juice box. A 4-ounce box of Froose contains three grams of fiber,whole fruit concentrate and eight grams of sugar. Froose is gluten-free, so it's safe for kids with a digestive disorder called Celiac Disease and for kids with autism on a gluten-free diet.
It costs $30.00 for 40/4.23 oz boxes.
Here's the Froose.com website.
The medical company Medstar compiled these Fast Facts:
- Only about 20 percent of U.S. children get the recommended daily levels of fruits and vegetables.
- Many fruit juices have added sugar and are not necessarily a healthy food choice for small children.
- A new drink for children, called Froose®, is made from 100 percent fruit juice concentrate and organic brown rice syrup.
- A box of Froose juice has 80 calories, zero fat and cholesterol and three grams of fiber.
So, have you heard of this? Have you tried it? Does it sound like a good option to you?
