If there’s one food that’s marketed as the holy frail of health foods, it must be orange juice. OJ commercials are full of happy, energetic kids, smiling back at their moms who were so thoughtful to buy them this wonderful drink that tastes like heaven. Unless your kid is running a half marathon or has just come from a series of sprints, do not give them orange juice. You might as well dissolve sugar in cold water, colour it yellow and call it orange juice. Yeah yeah, it has vitamin C and whatnot, but how much of it does it really get absorbed compared to ingesting and digesting a real orange? The OJ manufacturer won’t tell you that. So please, please, please, go to the grocery section and get a real orange. Your kids will thank you later when they don’t have diabetes or aren’t obese.
