I was recently in a debate involving juice boxes that we give our kids for lunch. The question is, are they healthy? I really can’t answer that, you’d have to ask a nutritionist. All I am armed with is my opinion. However, thanks to the internet I can do a little bit of research. I compared three popular luch box bevereges, and posted my findings here. All three brands were of the same flavor – Fruit Punch.
Here’s the breakdown:

If you ask me, they all have a lot of sugar. So if it came down to it, I would go with the one that has 100% juice. Most brands offer varieties that contain 100% fruit juice.
