Reviews |

This is a sponsored post from BlogHer and Tropicana.

Let’s face it, it’s tricky to keep the family healthy ALL the time.  We are constantly trying to stay on top of good health whether it’s running around outside, riding bikes or walking through Disneyland…often 🙂  There’s no secret, it’s a challenge, but we try to have fresh fruit and vegetables on hand so we can eat as much as possible.  It’s nice when there is so much goodness packed into orange juice like Tropicana, I know my kids are getting their fruit serving just by drinking a big glass of juice!
