My winner is Tina M – CONGRATS!

What do you do keep your family healthy? How do you get more fruits and vegetables into your daily diets? These are important questions, and a healthy lifestyle really begins with what you eat.

We eat healthy

  • by having lots of fruit and vegetable options in the house
  • by not having other less healthy snacks around
  • by drinking fruit juices, especially orange juice

For our family, having fresh fruits and vegetables available more easily than other kinds of snacks really helps. It’s a difficult transition if you’re used to having lots of non-natural foods, but if the only options are carrot sticks or apples your kids will make a healthy choice!

I decided several months ago to try to eat more natural foods, and I found that requirement eliminated almost everything except fruits and vegetables. This one decision has changed our whole eating lifestyle and now we’re eating FOOD and not science.

Fruit juices are another great way to get more of that fruit in your daily diet, especially for those who are more resistant to making healthy choices.

Tropicana Pure Premium orange juice is made from 100% fruit juice (no artificial sweeteners or added sugar) and each 8-oz. glass is the same as 2 servings of fruit. Tropicana orange juice is a cost-effective and delicious way to meet your daily fruit quota.

We also stay healthy by limiting our media time. We don’t watch TV at all during the day and Elliot can watch part of a movie 1 or 2 days a week. He doesn’t know any different and because we spend less time in front of the TV we spend more time as a family outside and doing more active kinds of recreation.

How do you incorporate fruits and vegetables into your day to keep your family healthy??

Pledge to squeeze more fruits and veggies into your day & Tropicana will help kids in need. Tropicana will donate one 8-oz glass of orange juice to the USDA School Breakfast and Summer Food Service programs, up to 184,375 8-oz glasses. Please pledge by going to  http://bit.ly/gAU7Eq . Promo will end 12/31/11.

I have a juicer machine that we use for fruits and vegetables. Its a great way to meet the fruit/vegetable quota daily. What I like about Tropicana Pure Premium is that it is natural with no added sugars or artificial sweeteners.

7 Jessie C. April 12, 2011 at 10:46 pm

We love smoothies, so I put all veggies and fruit in, kids love it too much to care what’s in there. This trick works great with my picky eaters.

I drank Tropicana Orange Juice when I lived in California. Haven’t had much orange juice since then. I drink mostly Berry and Apple juices here in the North.

We try to snack on fresh fruit and veggies, and eat fruit for dessert.
Thanks for this great giveaway.

I like that you can get Tropicana OJ is so many varieties. I like the Lots’ Of Pulp, and my son prefers No Pulp.

Tropicana juice is actually our favorite orange juice. We try to make veggies fun and appitizing. Veggies are more nutrient when eaten raw, but it is difficult for me to get my tots to eat them sometimes. So by making fun shapes or faces I get them to try it. It works most of the time, but not always.

14 Ashley S. April 19, 2011 at 3:59 pm

We make smoothies and also add vegetables to pasta sauce

15 Nicole April 19, 2011 at 4:40 pm

It tastes great!

16 Jenny April 19, 2011 at 4:48 pm

I love the commercials from when I was a kid. Those are my most favorite commercials!

17 Sharon April 21, 2011 at 8:43 am

I love that there is a variety of Tropicana Pure Premium Orange Juice that includes Calcium and Vitamin D, important nutrients. I also learned that Tropicana is the largest single buyer of Florida fruit.

19 Johannah B April 22, 2011 at 6:13 am

I love to use orange juice in baking. It gives a nice flavor to anything from pie crusts to sugar cookies. I love the extra Calcuim and Vitamin D too.

20 Naomi April 25, 2011 at 10:58 pm

I buy Tropicana Pure Premium Orange Juice because it tastes most like fresh squeezed juice and doesn’t come from concentrate.

21 Abby April 26, 2011 at 7:25 pm

I just love Tropicana’s iconic “orange with a straw in it.” And it tastes just like that :)

22 Tina M April 27, 2011 at 8:05 pm

I like their juice has no added sugars or artificial sweeteners!

23 Tina M April 27, 2011 at 8:07 pm
24 Robin April 27, 2011 at 9:02 pm

My favorite thing about Tropicana is the great taste, it tastes just like fresh squeezed.

25 Christi B. May 2, 2011 at 9:19 am

The pulpier the better for me, but the rest of my family doesn’t feel the same way, so I appreciate that they have a selection of kinds of OJ that even my children will drink.

26 Missy May 4, 2011 at 1:36 pm

My sisters and I would try and try and try to poke straws into our oranges. Who didn’t ?

27 Janice May 4, 2011 at 5:17 pm

Besides the taste, I love that it has two servings of fruit per glass!

28 betsy May 6, 2011 at 7:51 pm

I am looking forward to summer and making my kids orange julius they can get there vitamin C and calcium in one shot.

29 Lisa May 7, 2011 at 9:27 am

My favorite thing about Tropicana Pure Premium Orange Juice is that it is just that, orange juice with no added sugars or sweeteners.

30 Shawn May 8, 2011 at 12:36 pm

My very favorite thing about Tropicana Pure Premium OJ is the taste.
