We all know that getting our daily recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables isn’t always easy. If you have picky kid eaters, that challenge can be even harder, so it’s nice to be able to find ways to eat healthier without having to stare at a plate of brussels sprouts. (Don’t get me wrong…there isn’t anything wrong with brussels sprouts – they just aren’t my favorite food.) That’s one of the reasons I like juice so much. If you drink the right juice, it can be a great way to supplement your fruits. And when I say “the right juice” I mean a juice that is made 100% of fruit and doesn’t have any added sugar. Welch’s 100% Grape Juice fits that bill.

Did you know that each glass of Welch’s grape juice contains the smooshed remnants of over 40 grapes and provides 2 servings of fruit (where 1 serving = 1/2 cup of fruit?) Drinking Welch’s 100% Grape Juice is an easy way to supplement your fruit intake to help achieve a healthy and balanced diet.
Welch’s 100% Grape Juice is more than just your average fruit juice. The Grape Science Center has some great information about the health benefits that drinking Concord grape juice can provide, including helping to support a healthy heart, healthy mind, and a healthy immune system. Who knew so much could be accomplished by one little fruit? In addition to being chock-full of anti-oxidants, the Concord grapes that are used in Welch’s 100% Grape Juice are also excellent sources of manganese and also contains vitamin K, thiamin (vitamin B1), vitamin B6, potassium, and vitamin C.
I love that Welch’s 100% Grape Juice is made 100% from Concord grapes and doesn’t have any added sugars, flavor or colors. That means with every glass, you get the pure flavor of the grapes, and it tastes GOOD. Whether it’s the deep purple juice from Welch’s own Concord grapes or the lighter yellow white grape juice, I enjoy sitting back with a glass of cold grape juice. It isn’t too sweet and has a very subtle kick of tartness.
If you’re looking for some different ways to enjoy Welch’s 100% Grape Juice, visit The Recipe Box on the Welch’s website, where they have several creative recipes you can follow, using Welch’s grape juice, to create your own “Welch’s Mocktail.” The Grapeopolitan looks totally delicious. Simply mix 3/4 cup of Welch’s 100% Grape Juice, with 1 tablespoon of fresh squeezed lime juice and 1 tablespoon of fresh squeezed OJ. Yum.
Beyond just providing us with great juice, Welch’s is also helping to educate children about the importance of eating fruits and vegetables, as well as knowing where their food comes from, through the Welch’s Harvest Grants program. Welch’s recently announced that 100 elementary schools will receive gardening grants, enabling those schools to grown their own fruits and vegetables. The kids will be able to plant, weed, take care of, and ultimately harvest their own fruits and veggies. For complete details and official rules for the Harvest Grants and Welch’s, visit:
