Research has directly linked the over-consumption of juice to childhood obesity and poor dental health. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Dental Association recommend diluting juice with water (50/50) for children under 4 years old. Making fruit juice cubes using the So Easy Storage Trays, makes it convenient to have diluted juice on hand and makes it fun for a child to drink it.
How to use the So Easy Storage to make fruit juice cubes:
Fill the trays with 100% juice, cover and freeze. Pop the cubes and place them in a freezer storage bag. Write the type of juice on the bag.
For serving, simply add 1 or 2 juice cubes to a 6-oz. cup of water. The cubes will flavor the water and keep it cold at the same time.
Tip: For older children and adults, try freezing exotic juice flavors such as strawberry, guava, or pomegranate in the trays. Dropping a few cubes into seltzer water or a simple juice, such apple or orange, instantly creates a uniquely flavored beverage.
