Summertime brings on lazy days where you just don’t feel like doing too much in the heat. I am guilty of inundating my child with toys and TV just to get through the hottest days without leaving the AC. I find that we both tend to snack a lot on those days because we are home and bored, while on pool and beach days we snack less because we are on the go and out.
Pocoyo and Langers Juice have teamed up to encourage interactive dance and healthy snacking with the new DVD, Dance Pocoyo Dance! Beginning August 1 through August 31, parents can receive an all-new Pocoyo DVD – Dance Pocoyo Dance!–with the purchase of 10 Langers Juices (plus $1.99 shipping and handling), while supplies last.
We had the opportunity to review the DVD and it provides quite a few episodes of learning through movement and play. We would always catch Pocoyo during intermission for only a few minutes throughout the day. My little girl would ask for him throughout the day but it was not so popular. Now, Nick Jr. will be featuring Pocoyo in its own half hour time slot on Saturday and Sunday at 1pm EST and will continue the intermission specials during the week at 4:25pm. I have even caught Pocoyo on PBS at 8am on Saturdays. You can watch FREE Pocoyo footage on YouTube. While it is difficult to find licensed Pocoyo products, we have been successful finding the plush toys at Toys R Us and Amazon.
Langers Juice is a family favorite of ours. In flavors like orange, red grape, white grape (my personalfav) grape with vitamin C, and pineapple, you can find Langers juice at your local supermarket or supercenter. I love to make ice pops for my toddler with Langers Juice. I know she is getting a healthy snack and not an ice pop loaded with colors and artificial flavors. With 100% fruit juice, Langers is a smart choice for a sweet treat!
Mayo Clinic Nutritionist Katherine Zeratsky, R.D., L.D., says that while whole fruit is the best choice, certain types of fruit juice can be a healthy part of your child’s diet.
Recent studies have confirmed that drinking moderate amounts of 100 percent fruit juicedoesn’t affect a child’s weight. What 100% fruit juice does offer is more vitamins and nutrients
and fewer additives than other drink choices.
The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Heart Association recommends
that children between 6 months and 6 years can safely consume 4 to 6 ounces (118 to 177
milliliters) of 100% fruit juice a day; while those 7 years and older can consume between 8 to
12 ounces (237 to 355 milliliters) per day. About 4 ounces (118 milliliters) of 100% fruit juice
equals one serving of fruit.
