Getting kids to eat healthy has never been so easy
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, most Americans don’t eat enough vegetables. Additionally, our fruit consumption is actually dropping. Only one-third of Americans consume fruit or fruit juices at least once a day. That’s a whole lot of kids and adults who are missing out on the crucial nutrients that fruits and veggies give us.
Thankfully, there is a way to bring more produce into your diet. RAAW Juices™ (produced by Raw Foods International, LLC) offer a better alternative for consumers looking to add fruits and veggies into their family’s diet without wasting time or money.
The best part about our juices is that they taste great, so you won’t ever have to argue with your kids to make them finish their drink. For example, our Better Beets contains the juice of 1 ½ beets (great for stamina and cardiovascular health), and it is loaded with vitamins and iron. But all your family will care about it is that it tastes fresh and delicious!
Raw Foods International products are vegan, kosher, gluten free, contain no added preservatives or flavoring and are non-GMO verified. They also include no added sugars, so you can feel good about what you are drinking and about what you are giving your kids.
The next time you reach for a Red Bull or a 5-hour Energy, opt instead for a healthy version of an energy drink. Raw Foods International has created an all natural Mango Guarana RAAW™ Juice that is not only tastier than your typical energy drink, but actually provides an effective, healthy stimulant in the form of a juice. Executive Vice President Paul Gregg explains how the Mango Guarana flavor combination is a great alternative to your usual caffeine boost.
“The Mango Guarana is a great option for an on-the-go, healthy energy boost that doesn’t have any artificial flavoring or ingredients,” says Gregg. “All of our juices are made for the health-conscious consumer looking for a natural choice at a modest price point. The Mango Guarana is a fresh blend of fruits and vegetables with no added sugars or preservatives.”
Guarana is a plant especially common in Brazil that has about twice the concentration of caffeine found in coffee beans, and is known to increase endurance and reduce fatigue. The Mango Guarana RAAW™ juice consists of the juice of one mango, ¼ cup guarana seeds and natural flavors from other complimentary fruit and vegetables.
Sticking to a healthy diet typically revolves around eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, but how do you know if your produce is up to par? Paul Gregg, Executive Vice President of Raw Foods International, LLC, explains that an influx of product terminology may confuse consumers as to what they are really consuming.
“There is a plethora of products in the food industry that are comprised of genetically-modified organisms,” says Gregg. “Genetic engineering was originally used as an alternative to pesticides, among other things. However these altered products are a departure from the natural fruits and vegetables we know and love; if pests won’t go near the produce, why should humans?”
Gregg explains that food companies are not required to inform customers if their products contain GMOs. “To ensure a product is 100 percent all natural, the labeling should list that it is non-GMO verified,” says Gregg. “Many juices on the market claim to be ‘all natural’ but in reality, they aren’t approved for a non-GMO label. Even organic foods have been found to contain GMOs and that’s why it’s important that the shopper beware (for more information on organic GMOs, click here).” Gregg continues, “consuming non-GMO verified foods helps to protect your insides and after all, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. Just because a product is ‘all natural’ or ‘organic’ doesn’t mean that you are getting the very best. The non-GMO verification is the proverbial icing on the cake that makes a good product great.”
RAAW® Juices, fruit and vegetable juice blends from Raw Foods International, are one of the premier non-GMO juices on the market. Gregg adds that each concoction has thoughtfully been crafted with quality ingredients so that consumers can truly taste the difference. “Not only do our flavors strike the perfect balance between sweet and savory, but you can also rest easy knowing that our product is 100 percent natural.”
