Many Americans are not getting enough fruits and vegetables, but Florida Orange Juice is a convenient way to help you and your kids bridge that gap since it counts as a serving of fruit. Most people know Florida Orange Juice best as an excellent source of vitamin C, but what you may not know is that it is full of other important vitamins and nutrients like potassium, folate, and thiamin, which offer a variety of health benefits. Plus, it never contains added sugar. Just be sure to check the refrigerated juice section of your local grocery store and make sure it says 100% orange juice.
