Living in the South where it gets unbelieveably hot, I am constantly reminding my kids to drink, drink, drink to stay hydrated. They often get tired of the same old milk or water, and I don’t want them filling themselves up with empty calorie drinks that are full of unwanted sugar. Recently, I was excited to learn about Old Orchard Healthy Balance Juice!
Exactly what is Healthy Balance? From the website: “Healthy Balance is Old Orchard’s line of low-sugar, low-calorie juice drinks. With 75% less sugar, carbs, and calories than traditional juice cocktails, Healthy Balance is fit for your lifestyle.” Healthy Balance offers a wide range of tempting blends from traditional Apple to something as refreshingly different as Pomegranate Blueberry Acai. There are many more delicious flavors to satisfy anyone’s taste buds. My family got to try the Pomegranate Blueberry Acai. I must admit I was a little skeptical with it being a flavor that was a little off the beaten path but after the juice was chilled it didn’t take long to change my mind. My 5 year old daughter is usually the pickiest in the house, and she drank her cup full in nothing flat and quickly begged for more. Both kids agreed the juice was “awesome” and I thought it was pretty awesome that they were getting no added preservatives, artificial colors, or artificial flavors.
One more thing about Healthy Balance that’s pretty awesome is that it was created to give a better option to those who are watching calorie or carb intake. Healthy Balance is one of the only juice brands low enough in carbohydrates to be consumed as part of a sugar-restricted diet. Healthy Balance is also the cornerstone for a 4-year partnership between Old Orchard and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Your purchase of Healthy Balance helps to ensure a minimum donation of $650,000 towards finding a cure for type-1 diabetes. This is great news for both Bridgette and myself as we both have beloved family members who suffer from diabetes. I am sure they will consider making Healthy Balance a part of their diets very soon!
