37 tasty ways to enjoy health benefits of juice

Posted on Mar 21, 2016

talking juice on BritMums.comHow do you and your family enjoy your juice?

At our #LittleGlass Twitter conversation we chatted about how your family enjoys juice ? a little glass with breakfast, a boost with an after-school snack, or enjoyed with dinner.

This conversation and prize draw was sponsored by Tropicana and its range of juices families love. One 150ml glass is an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of folate ? vitamins that can help maintain a healthy immune system. A little glass of 100% juice has great health benefits and is a no-fuss way to give kids one of their 5-a-day.

Sue Gatenby, Senior Director Nutrition at Tropicana was on hand to answer any questions about juice and Tropicana.
