Nestlé’s U.S. subsidiary - Nestlé USA - based in Glendale, Calif., now markets Juicy Juice Brain Development. It is the only children’s fruit juice beverage in the U.S. market currently offering DHA, which makes it a great first juice beverage choice for toddlers. DHA acts as a building block for brain development during a child’s first two years of life, when their brains triple in size, and experts often recommend infant formula fortified with DHA for children who are not breastfeeding (breast milk is a natural source of DHA). During this important developmental phase, Juicy Juice Brain Development, which contains 16 milligrams of DHA per serving, is designed to provide children who are old enough to drink juice with continued DHA in their diet.
Like all Juicy Juice products, Juicy Juice Brain Development is made with all-natural fruit juice and no added sugars, preservatives or artificial flavors or colors. What is unique about this new product is that the juices are blended with filtered water (70% and 30% water), which results in fewer calories and a reduced amount of naturally occurring sugars. The reduction of sugar and calories through dilution, coupled with essential nutrient enhancement, make Juicy Juice Brain Development a unique and convenient option in the children’s beverage category. New Juicy Juice Brain Development is available in apple and grape flavors.
