When we first started to drink V8 Juice as a family, it was because we knew our kids didn’t always get what they needed from their diet.
Most parents know exactly what I am saying here too!
This is usually how it goes: ”What do you want for dinner boys?”
“Pizza Mom” is the first response.
Come on… pizza, sandwiches and more pizza? Um…Nope.
If we took the boys out to dinner they always pick the hamburgers and fries with pizza or chicken. Where’s the vegetables on your plate? Like most kids they take a look at the vegetables and go no thanks.
Well my dears it is now mandatory in our home. We came up with a solution that just about covers any parents concerns.
We keep V8 Juice and the fusion drinks in our home. Apart from the boys eating their normally scheduled meals they also are required to have a small glass of V8 juice and some of the V8 fusion. I never get a scowl about the Fusion drinks and the boys are getting better about the V8 Juice too.
What is the moral of this post? If you are a parent like us and want to see your kids have more vegetables in their diet try the juice instead. It is a pretty good deal and you can eventually leave the nag club with your kids eating more vegetables!
Besides my whining about teenagers and vegetables…
Uncle Vlad drinks V8 vegetable juice everyday and it is all he consumes. If it is good enough for an old Nosferatu to sink his two front teeth into, then it is certainly good enough for the rest of us!
Happy vegetable drinking.
