HEALTHY CHOICES MY FAMILY AND I MAKE WITH WELCH’S @Welchs @TheLicensingCo #Welchs

9 Dec

As a mom of 4 I’m sure there are plenty parents out there who wish they didn’t have picky eaters. I try to cook healthy for my kids and make sure they get their daily dosage of vegetables, & fruit, and leave out the junk food. Sometimes I have to sneak vegetables in their food either by pureeing or just put it on their plate and say eat those veggies first. I DO NOT allow anything with HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP in my house and that’s the main reason we gave up sodas and a lot of junk food. It can also be hidden in foods you would never even think. I read all labels and if it takes me an extra 20 minutes in the supermarket then it’s worth it for my family. Fruits aren’t that big of a problem in my house. My kids choices range from grapes, tangerines, apples, bananas so I’m glad they all can agree on that. I think my kids drink more than they eat. I go through so many drinks sometimes I have to stock up in the food warehouse stores so I have plenty. We love juices that are 100% like Welch’s Grape Juice, 100% White Grape Juice, and 100% White Grape Peach Juice just to name a few.

Welch’s Jams, Jellies, and Spreads have been a regular in our home for years. What kid doesn’t love a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich? Fast to make and a great snack. What parent doesn’t appreciate that?

Now Welch’s has another great snack which are their 100% Juice Ice Bars. What is a plus for me is No High Fructose Corn syrup and No Artificial Flavors. Three flavors- Grape, White Grape with Cherry Flavor, and White Grape with Tropical Flavor. I tasted these great juice ice bars at an event I attended and I was very happy and my kids were as well when I let them try. I will keep my freezer stocked with these handy bars for the kids to grab whenever they like.

Another Welch’s product I tried were the frozen fruits. These frozen fruits were made into a smoothie in no time. I was very impressed how it tasted so fresh as if I went to the farmer’s market that day and hand picked the fruit. You can’t tell they are frozen at all once you make your smoothie. There are different varieties to choose from like, Wild Blueberry, Mangoes, Mango Medley, Four Berry Mix, Antioxidant Fruit Blend, Strawberries Banana Mix, Raspberries, and Strawberries. I have no problem using these in my pancakes, in a glass of Welch’s Sparkling Cocktails, or right out of the bag. They are sold in re-sealable bags that lock in the fresh taste. Prices range from $3.49-$4.79 depending upon retailer margin and variety. Only 50-70 calories/serving. Naturally sweet- no added sugar.

Facts about Welch’s 100% Grape Juice:

Welch’s 100% a Grape Juice helps support a healthy heart , thanks to the dark purple Concord grape.

Is a convenient way to incorporate more purple fruit into a healthy diet. As a complement to whole fruit, each 4-oz. glass counts as one serving (1/2 cup) of fruit.
Uses the entire Concord grape- skin, seeds and all – to release natural plant nutrients (polyphenols)
straight from the grape. More than 20 Concord grapes are squeezed into each 4-oz glass.
