It is finally feeling like fall here in the midwest! With cooler temps that means more and more time outside letting the boys run off some of that extra energy. Because one and three-year-olds have more energy than I know what to do with! #truestory
Brandon this weekend had some scraps from his latest order and decided to make it into a really long ramp for the boys to play with outside. So far it has been amazing, they love chasing the cars and see how far they go. I watch them go back and forth and up and down on repeat. And I know they are getting worn out which is a good thing for this mama.
With all that hard playing it is important for them to stay hydrated. We recently discovered Welch’s 100% Grape Juice with Coconut Water that fits the bill! It is brand new and not like anything else we know about. You can learn more about the juice here and search where to find it near you! I snagged some at our local Walmart.
The boys absolutely love it more than other juices they have tried. I normally have to water down the juices for the boys to like them, but the added benefit of the juice being mixed with coconut water it has 30% less sugar.
As you can see the boys love it, but I actually love it too. I’m partial to the White Grape Mango, but the boys have been drinking the Tropical Berry Grape. BTR has been sneaking a glass with his morning breakfast too! Normally some juices are too intense for us, the added coconut water is truly unique and refreshing and only 100 calories per serving. Now if Welch’s could only make a spill proof lid everything would be perfect! I don’t think one of those exists with Ezra. Seriously the kid can disassemble any cup in two seconds flat.
When digging a little deeper about Welch’s as a company I learned a few things I had no idea about. Welch’s is made right here in the United States and is actually owned by more than 900 farmer families in the US, so it is owned by a cooperative of farmers. How cool is that?
With more time outside on the front porch and fun activities planned this fall, we will be sipping on our new favorite juice knowing it is a healthy and great tasting choice for our family.
And how cute is this box that Welch’s sent us? Those pineapple cups are the CUTEST things ever and I’m totally not sharing them.
I am officially claiming it as my favorite grape juice that is not fermented! :) And honestly I tried to drink coconut water a few months ago as heard of all the great health benefits, and I just didn’t enjoy it. I do enjoy drinking my coconut water in my Welch’s!
Which flavor would you pick, White Grape Mango or Tropical Berry Grape?
