Put The Good in Your Morning with Tropicana Pure Premium Orange Juice and $100 Visa Card Giveaway

It’s not always easy for me to get my son to want to eat his breakfast. Since I never give into his early morning chocolate cravings, sometimes it can be a fight. It’s funny when I argue with him about why he can’t have candy and soda in the morning, it always brings back memories of my childhood. I use to have the same argument with my mom, but I always felt unloved because my 2 cousins who lived across the street got to have soda and candy bars for breakfast. I thought I was a victim of child abuse in the worst way, not getting the goodies I craved. Little did I know.

For my family to stay in optimum health, I like for us both to get protein, a small amount of carbs and at least 1 serving of fruit in the morning. We usually eat eggs and toast, or an egg, sausage or bacon sandwich. Sometimes we eat fruit alongside our breakfast, but I always also make sure we have orange juice. Being Floridians, we know how important and nutritious oranges are. Tropicana is the biggest purchaser of Florida oranges, and to support our state’s economy and agriculture, I choose Tropicana Pure Premium orange juice.

Tropicana Pure Premium orange juice is 100% juice, from the best oranges, Florida oranges. Their juice has no added sugars or artificial sweeteners. Florida oranges aren’t widely available outside the state, you usually find California oranges in most supermarkets. Oranges from California are big and attractive, but lack the taste the little, sometimes not as attractive Florida oranges have.
Orange juice is also very nutritious. Did you know one 8 ounce glass has 2 servings of fruit? With so many people not getting adequate fruit in  their diet, juice is better than no fruit at all. And orange juice is so nutritious, a glass has a full day’s supply of Vitamin C, as much potassium as a medium banana and is a natural source of B vitamin folate, which helps the body make new cells and DNA and may reduce the risk of birth defects of the brain and spinal cord.

  1. I don’t have kids of my own, but I teach 8th grade; and I am constantly trying to influence my students to make healthy choices. I try teach them through example. I always bring healthy snacks and lunches. I also have all of my running bib numbers and age group awards placed around my classroom. I take every opportunity that I can to encourage my students to eat healthy and exercise!

  2. I posted a link in the giveaway section of my blog.

    I don’t have any kids of my own yet, but I start my day off on the right foot with healthy breakfast foods like yogurt, egg whites, fruit, oatmeal, or oj. And of course coffee.

    As the mom of teenagers…..it’s important to me that my kids eat healthy!
    Each of them do a great job of choosing foods that make them feel great.
    Avoiding a lot of fast food is key!
    They love starting the day with a big glass of Tropicana!

  13. nadine — March 15, 2011 @ 3:05 pm

    My youngest is now 18. But with all 4 of my children I have made a habit of having healthy food in the fridge.
    Fresh fruit, juice, yogurt….. as teens they usually do not sit to eat breakfast, they grab and go. That way they can grab a glass of juice a fruit and a yogurt. And I know they have had a good start.

  14. Kathy — March 15, 2011 @ 9:04 pm

    I always serve orange juice, and fruit is somehow incorporated into breakfast. It could be apple wedges with peanut butter on the side (for extra protein), sliced banana on cereal, or fruit on top of waffles/pancakes.

  15. Lisa — March 15, 2011 @ 9:31 pm

    I don’t have children, but I try to incorporate a serving of vegetables into my breakfast by adding them to an omelette and try to eliminate processed foods at breakfast time in order to eat healthier.

  16. Kristen — March 15, 2011 @ 11:24 pm

    I don’t have kids, but I try to add fruit in my oatmeal or cereal. It doesn’t have to be whole fruit either- Oatmeal is great with some applesauce or mashed pumpkin/butternut squash mixed in. And I love topping my cereal with ground flax seeds

  17. Monet — March 15, 2011 @ 11:50 pm

    I don’t have kids (yet!) But I know what I do for my husband and me…we start the day off with fruit, protein and whole grains! Ryan adores orange juice…and his favorite is Tropicana no pulp. Thanks for sharing this fun giveaway, my dear!

    I don’t actually have any children and my dogs don’t like orange juice. [Well, okay, that’s not exactly true. They eat anything. They just make faces when they get ahold of OJ]

    If I did have children, I would give them Tropicana Pure Premium OJ!

    we have OJ,eggs and toast almost everyday.

  25. Margaret Smith — March 16, 2011 @ 8:00 am

    Thanks so much.

    I try to follow the idea that I need to be the example that I want my children to follow. By eating a nutritious breakfast for my own self, I show my kids how yummy and great it is to have!

  33. Kathleen — March 16, 2011 @ 2:04 pm

    Lead by example and never let them have junk for breakfast. We usually have fresh fruit with toast.

    My daughter is older and luckily happy to eat a good breakfast of yogurt, whole grain toast and OJ most mornings

  35. nik — March 16, 2011 @ 3:21 pm

    My favorite tip:
    Make granola with your kids…it always gets them more excited to eat it. Teach them why each ingredient is healthy. Try a different recipe every week, or make up your own recipes and let them pick the ingredients. At the end of the month, vote on the best recipe. Keep all the recipes in a cookbook that they make, decorate and illustrate…the winning recipes get 4 gold star stickers.
    The more input kids have in what they eat, the more you let them help, the more eager they are to eat healthy meals!

  36. Kate — March 16, 2011 @ 3:23 pm

    I make sure the whole family gets a good start with a high fiber cereal, skim milk, and a glass of 100% juice.

    I help my kids to eat a healthy breakfast by making sure there’s good stuff for them. You and I could be chocolate eating breakfast twins, but my youngest has always asked “When are we going to eat real food?” if we were junk eating.

    Tropicana is our go-to orange juice because this stuff is just so much better than all the other stuff out there on the shelves. Also, some of us are big fans of oatmeal. We have a waffle crowd, as well.

I also have oatmeal and grits aleady made to nuke in the microwave. Mornings are crazy , so I don’t want to have think about preparing breakfast in the am. Turkey bacon is already precooked and ready to eat.

  101. Libby's Library — March 27, 2011 @ 12:26 am

    When my kids were home, I found that 3 things made for a “healthy” breakfast:
    1.Make mornings a pleasant time…if everyone is rushing around, shouting, and scrambling to get out the door,
    it’s very hard for kids and adults, alike, to enjoy eating.
    2.Make a eating a good breakfast a “do as I do” situation, not just a “do as I say” situation.
    3.Since breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day, try to serve foods that your kids like!
    Who says that breakfast has to be cereal or eggs? My girls used to love having salad, and the boys liked peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in the morning.

    Thanks for the great giveaway.

  102. Nancy Krueger — March 27, 2011 @ 8:24 am

    My children are adults now but when they were young I made sure to prepare breakfast every day. Fortunately they were never picky eaters so providing them with balanced and nutritious meals was easy. They always wanted juice with breakfast and orange juice was a favorite. They now prepare good food for their own children.

  120. jennifer horn — March 29, 2011 @ 7:44 am

    I try to make foods that I can sneak in fruits and veggies. They love muffins, pancakes and waffles and it’s easy to sneak the good stuff in.

    Our grandkids love the taste of Tropicana so thats all I buy. Why try anything different? Our grandkids love fresh oatmeal with cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on top and granny smith apples chopped up. Makes an AWESOME hot meal on cold wintry mornings!

  132. nicole — March 30, 2011 @ 12:58 pm

    I watch over a group of boys in Juvenile Hall, and it takes a great deal of patience to try everyday to educate them in a variety of areas, one of which is treating their bodies’ right. I do this at breakfast time by substituting extra meat with fruit, and oatmeal for lasting energy and have them be better prepared when they go to the classroom. 🙂

  133. kathy — March 30, 2011 @ 7:50 pm

    I start their morning with a smoothie.

    I have an array of easy things like cereal bars, juice and even a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or bagel with cream cheese. It’s a grab and go breakfast since he’s a teen and prefers to sleep later.

  152. mickeyfan — April 3, 2011 @ 11:24 pm

    When my kids were younger, I was pretty flexible about breakfast. If they wanted pizza, ok. I would rather see them eat something than fight. I mean, what really is the difference between cake and sugary cereal? Throw in some milk and we were good to go.

  153. Rachel — April 4, 2011 @ 9:14 pm

    Breakfast is super important, so we avoid things like strudels and donuts…..have some juice, toast, etc. Good stuff.

    When things get hectic, its easy to grab something unhealthy and go. That is why I try to keep the freezer/fridge stocked with healthy on-the-go options like single serve Naked smoothies and fresh fruit!

  186. Emmy T — April 10, 2011 @ 12:34 pm

    Love Tropicana, wish they would put all the good things into one bottle though; high pulp, calcium, and vitamin d. Haven’t tried the premium one.

    I love smoothies. They are great if you are in a rush or if you have all the time in the world. They pack a huge nutritional punch and in the summer when blended with ice they are like a frozen drink! Using fresh fruit and OJ with ice in a blender = win!

    I help the kids eat healthy by putting (or sneaking) fresh fruit into everything they eat/drink – besides orange or apple juice, I’ll add bananas or strawberries to their cereal, oatmeal, or pancakes; put fresh fruit preserves on their toast instead of butter, or make them fruit/yogurt parfaits. Thanks!
