This healthy hydration post has been sponsored by #Welchs. However, as always my thoughts, opinions, and lifestyle hacks are my own.
Once upon a time there were two lovely people. First came love…then came marriage. Then came a books about the baby carriage. Ya’ll, there is a reason they didn’t keep on writing about what to expect. And that is where this healthy hydration hack steps in to help parenting stay sweet.
Which ironically…is all about finding 100% juice with 30% less sugar than other leading grape juices. And it’s courtesy of the newest Welch’s 100% Juice with Coconut Water. Not only did I get the fun box embedded above, but I found it in the juice aisle at my local Walmart too. It’s also being stocked at other local grocers, so make sure to look for it on your next shopping trip.
Just why is this product so pivotal a parenting hack? Packing a good source of Vitamin C, this 100% juice offers up two servings of fruit per 8oz (equal to 1 cup of fruit). And now combine all the benefits of drinking coconut water, including that naturally lower sugar content. Add in an easy source of potassium and no artificial flavors? That picky eater doesn’t stand a chance.
Especially when you realize how easy it is to make your own frozen favorites using Welch’s 100% Juice with Coconut Water. I’d long been a fan of buying prepackaged coconut water ice pops. But I can save big on after school snacks by making these myself. And with two great (and tasty) flavors, everyone is sure to find a favorite.
Personally, I really loved the White Grape Mango variety. It blends so seamlessly with the coconut water, and offers up more of the island flavor one may expect. However the coconut water isn’t overwhelming. Something the Tropical Berry Grape takes advantage of when blending its trademark grape flavor together with pineapple and blackberries. Both bottles were a delight, and offered a much smoother finish than a traditional grape juice.
Something else that I love about keeping Welch’s juice in my home? That it’s grapes are family grown. I grew up in the country and its important to me to support farmers. And not only that, it’s satisfying to realize where your food comes from.
Especially in this day and age of unknown food origins and exports, we still are what we eat. Something that never became as apparent until I found myself pregnant. And is still important in what I choose to feed my children.
Ready to keep life sweet and easy with me? Because the real reason we don’t need anymore books on what to expect…is that we got this. So never again toss mushy bananas or browned apples from lunchboxes again. And come try this easy way to enjoy Welch’s juice with your family too!
