Description

Most juices that are sold in stores contain as much sugar as some sodas. A healthier option is to water down juices by adding at least 50% water. Or add fresh fruit to water to make your own delicious drink.

Buy It

  • Look for juices that have "100% juice" in the ingredient list. Avoid juices made with high fructose corn syrup or sugar.

Store It

  • Store juices in the fridge if fresh or after opening juices that were stored on shelves. Drink within 7 to 10 days of opening.

Cook It

  • Dilute juice with water or use it to flavor sparkling water for a refreshing drink.

Why It's Great

  • Vitamin C keeps our immune system strong and helps our bodies heal quickly.
