Barely three weeks ago, Trev suffered from colds. Although it was mild, I was worried because he rarely gets sick. Hindi rin siya mabilis mahawa but I don't know why, I guess he caught the bug from one of his cousins when we visited them days back before his colds started.
Anyway, I had no problems making him drink lots of water and making him eat fresh fruits and vegetables because he's never been a picky eater. He's also taking Vitamin C supplement daily. Also, I'm still breastfeeding him until now, yes and we're on our 26th month already (and counting! ☺). We went to his pedia for his immunization and consulted na rin about his colds. She advised water therapy (which I was already doing, of course ☺). No meds were prescribed, which I find no problem naman since di naman grabe sipon niya. Besides, I don't want to depend on meds when not really necessary. But being the worried mom that I am, I wanted to look for more ways than one to make him recover faster.
We were at the grocery the other week when I saw these 100% fruit juices. It says in the packaging that both have no sugar added and are good source of Vitamin C. Got interested so I bought these two flavors for my son to try.
|Ceres and Apple & Eve 100% Fruit Juice. I forgot the exact price but they are a little over Ph20 each.|
Trev had a taste of the Ceres juice the next day. I guess you can see from the photo below that he likes it, haha!
He also likes the Apple & Eve 100% fruit juice. I also had a little sip just so I know how both taste like. I thought kasi that since both are sugar free, it would taste too bland or too sour. But surprisingly, the taste was okay.
As of this writing, I have already bought other flavors, too. He doesn't drink it naman everyday, paminsan minsan lang. So, I guess that's okay. :-)
By the way, he doesn't have colds anymore. It went away after a week. Hurray! Thank God!
Mommies, have you tried these 100% fruit juices for your kids, too? How was it? Have you had any other similar products to suggest? :-)
