First Juice - Delicious, Nutricious, and Adorable

I'll admit it, I'm WAY more likely to buy something when the packaging catches my eye. This little guy to the left has called out to me from the organic section of my grocery store more than once. I mean, who can resist this little guy riding a carrot tricycle wearing an apple hat?

So I'm a sucker for good packaging, but guess what...SO ARE KIDS! And what's INSIDE these adorably bright bottles is even better than what's on the outside.

First Juice is a line of organic fruit and vegetable juices designed specifically for developing taste buds. Their blends are naturally lower in sugar helping toddlers develop healthier habits early on. So that cute little guy on the carrot tricycle is "steering children towards healthy colorful fruits and vegetables while putting the brakes on sugar and sweet."

First Juice comes in an 8 oz. sippy-top bottle (what child doesn't LOVE that?) or a 32 oz. multi-serve refill bottle. Their bottles are BPA-free, recyclable, and tested to ensure the sippy top bottles are reusable.

First Juice has 4 delicious flavors:
  • Apple and Carrot
  • Banana and Carrot
  • Blueberry and Purple Carrot
  • Peach and Purple Carrot

Yep, I asked the same thing...purple carrots?? You'll just have to click here to see for yourself!
