If you know us well, you know that we have a toddler who really doesn’t care much for food. Last fall we were totally at a loss of what to do or how to get our kid to eat. Parents…ever been there?
Our main concern was that he wasn’t getting the proper nutrients that he needed in order to grow. I had read article after article, blog after blog, talked to the pediatrician and still no luck. I had talked to so many friends about this and everyone continued to assure me that he wouldn’t let himself starve and that he would eat if hungry. So we just kept offering food and introducing new things when possible.
I was with a group of girls one day and someone mentioned Juice+. I had never heard of it but I listened. As soon as I got home I got on the Google machine to see what this Juice+ stuff was all about. So what is Juice+?

I ran it by Alden and we decided it was worth a try. It absolutely couldn’t hurt could it? We placed our first order that night and a week after Thanksgiving began our Juice+ journey.
At first, Cliff was resistant. He wanted NOTHING to do with these gummies that we were trying to make him eat. So, by default and not wanting to waste the money, Alden and I started eating the gummies. A few weeks into eating these gummies we both starting noticing awesome changes in our bodies. I was having some digestion issues due to pregnancy and after a few weeks of Juice+ this all cleared up. No more stool softeners, no more make shift squatty-potty, no more TMI calls to the doctor; just regular daily trips to the restroom. I know, I know…it’s gross to talk about but we all do it. 🙂 Ok…moving on!
After some time, Cliff saw us eating these gummies and he slowly became interested. Now he asks for them every day and we even “gummy cheers” each time we eat one. He now likes them SO much that we have to limit the number he eats with each meal. Quite the change right?
So, what have I noticed in Cliff? He is hungry! He eats! PRAISE!!! I am not saying that this is all due to the Juice+ but I do know it has something to do with it.
