Review: good2grow Juices

*Disclosure: I received samples of this product to review. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.

It seems like most of the things that I've been reviewing lately have been for me or the household, and not so many for the kids. So they were beyond thrilled when I opened a box and found an assortment of fun juices with great bottle toppers! The juices are from good2grow, and here is a bit about them from a press release that I received:

Available in a variety of flavors and age appropriate sizes, good2grow makes serving sizes a no-brainer with portion control based on guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics (4oz: ages 1-3, 6oz: ages 3-5, and 8oz: ages 5-10).  Varieties include:
o   good2grow V-Blends - Available in Tropical Fruit Medley (71% juice, 6oz) and Strawberry Kiwi (71% juice, 6oz), good2grow™  V-Blends are a Vitamin C rich juice made only from the best ingredients. Made up of carrot, beet and apple juice, Tropical Fruit Medley contains 28% less sugar than 100% juice and Strawberry Kiwi contains 22% less sugar than 100% juice.
o   good2grow Organic Apple - good2grow ™ Organic Apple Juice is made from 100% juice and is a USDA-certified organic beverage.
o   good2grow™ Fruit Juice - Available in Fruit Punch (100% juice, 8oz) and two Apple Juice varieties (100% juice, 6oz and 60% juice/40% water, 4oz). The Fruit Punch combines apple, pear, and grape to create a flavorful juice that will leave kids refreshed.
All good2grow beverages are made only from the freshest, most nutritious ingredients and do not contain added sugar, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

My kids thought the juices were delicious and when they drank them all, they requested that I buy more in the future. But what they really were crazy about were the bottle toppers.  The bottle toppers are removable, so you can put them on refill bottles. And there is a huge variety of characters available- lots of Disney, Nickelodeon, Marvel, WB, Mattel and Hello Kitty choices, so it's pretty likely that your child will find one that they really love.  Another great feature about these bottle toppers is that they are spillproof, so no sticky juice on your floors or carseats.  So, if you're looking for a great juice for your kids, check out good2grow!
