Nathan will eat his weight in fruit and vegetables all day long. No joke. Last night he picked out all of the broccoli from his pasta dinner and ate that along with an entire bowl of cantaloupe. I practically had to force feed him any pasta or meat. My mom will buy him buckets of berries from Costco and he will finish it off in a day if I let him.
Of course, twin brother Gabriel is the complete opposite. He is my carb addict and would be perfectly happy eating nothing but cereal and peanut butter (no jelly) sandwich’s for the rest of his childhood.
Now, I know I am very lucky with Nathan, but I struggle to get Gabriel the vitamins that he needs to stay healthy. This is where Nutrilite’s Fruits and Vegetables 2GO come in.
Too busy to eat right? Give yourself a twist. NUTRILITE® Fruits & Vegetables 2GO Twist Tubes give you the antioxidant equivalent of two of the 9–13 servings of fruits and vegetables your body needs in a convenient, squeezable tube. Simply twist into a cold, 16-oz. bottle of water and enjoy a refreshing Mango-Citrus treat anytime, anywhere.
I’ve got this box of tubes that would be really easy to toss into a lunchbox or purse to take on the go. But, I’ve just been using them at home to help get some extra “oomph” into Gabriel’s diet. I have a large protein drink shaker thing (very technical, I know) and I fill it to the 16 oz mark and squeeze in my Fruits and Vegetables 2GO pack. I then pour it over ice between the three boys and they are happy to have “YAY! Yummy Juice!” with their lunch.
By the end of the day, if I’ve given them “juice” at each meal, I’ve gotten two more servings of fruits and vegetables into them without them suspecting a thing.
My FAVORITE part of the drink? NO ARTIFICIAL COLORS OR PRESERVATIVES.
Excellent for those with Red Dye #40 issues (or any other petroleum based fake color).
Oh, and it actually does taste very delicious. I bet you could run it through a blender and add some fresh mango and get an amazing smoothie…I’ll have to remember to try that this week.
Nutrilite is a division of Amway and I was hesitant at first because thoughts of Amway usually conjure up cheesy door to door salesmen. But Amway would not have been in business for over 51 years if they weren’t doing something right. And this Nutrilite Fruits and Vegetables 2GO is a great product that I am extremely happy with.
Just LOOK at those adorable little faces! How could I ever give them anything but the best? I couldn’t. And the best part here, is that I get to give THREE readers something fabulous, as well. Go me!
THREE lucky readers will each win their very own box of Nutrilite Fruits and Vegetables 2GO! YAY!
