After reading this post, we now know that even cartons that say "squeezed from fresh oranges" are heavily processed. So unless it's freshly squeezed that morning (or part of a special occasion mimosa), we usually skip it. What about you? Is OJ always part of your morning routine? Take our survey after the jump.We're not trying to be the juice police here, but we have heard of a few parents who have cut juice (even juice boxes) from their kids' diets, citing unnecessary sugar and calories.
Our opinion is simply that we'd rather eat those calories than drink them. OJ is gone in a flash; we'd rather savor an actual piece of fruit or add some more butter to our muffin. On the flip side, many juices now have calcium added in, which can be helpful, and of course there's the quick shot of Vitamin C.
Let us know what you think!
