A few weeks ago we were sent out these Appy Nickelodeon character drinks for the kids to try out. There has been a lot in the media about giving children juices because of their high sugar content and worries about rotting the children’s teeth. But these juice are healthier and are back by Change 4 Life campaign. The juices have 50% less sugar and calories compared to other kids juice drinks. Stevia is used instead of sugar and artificial ingredients. And a 330ml portion  counts towards a child’s 1 of 5 portions of fruit and veg.

The drinks have well-known Nickelodeon characters on the packaging which the kids love. We had Sponge Bob Square Pants, Dora the Explorer, Peppa Pig and the Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtles. The flavours were orange & pineapple, tropical and apple & blackcurrant.

What the kids thought

When the kids came home from school they couldn’t wait to try out the Appy drinks. They choose their favourite character, the Ninja Turtles. This flavour was the apple & blackcurrant one and they really enjoyed it. I had a taste myself and it was really nice and refreshing. You could tell it was watered down and not 100% pure fruit juice, which is full of sugar. So this is a great drink to have when the first get in from school to re-hydrate them and not just fill them up with empty calories. My kids do normally have plain water throughout the day and have juices with the breakfast and tea, but it’s nice to let them have a little treat now and again and these are great as the are much healthier than other drinks.

These are also great for lunch boxes. The kids have school dinners at school but when they go on a school trip and have to take a packed lunch, I normally buy them a fruit shoot or a carton of Ribena. But from now on I will be buying these Appy drinks has they are much more healthier and kinder on their teeth.

These drinks are available to buy from Tesco, Ocado, Whole Foods and Aldi

What drinks to you give your children? Would you swap them for these Appy drinks?

  1. I have a teen and we noth love squash so I wluld definitely try these for in the house. It’s so hard finding squash that’s free from harmful ingredients.

  2. The kids will love seeing their favorite Nick characters and it’s good to see it’s not just another corn syrup drink. These could be great for school lunches.

  3. Slightly flavoured water – their school only allows water, but we fill their water bottles up with the flavoured ones. But we do warn them to be careful

  4. We tend to have sugar fee pop and fruit juice in our house
    Always looking for the best drinks with natural ingredients and the least chemicals as possible so yes I would love them

  5. I normally buy lots of fresh orange juice as we go through lots of drinks in our house.
    These look great and I would happily buy these instead of the usual juice.

  6. I have 4 kids all of different ages (2, 9, 10 & 12). They mainly have water or no added sugar juice/squash. I personally like the watered down juice more as like you say it’s less sugar and so much more refreshing. These are definitely something I would swap to using. My kids (all of them lol) love peppa pig, so the characters on the boxes are a brilliant idea x

  7. Any sort of drinks really squashes, fruit juices, smoothies but Appy drinks with less sugar would definitely be added to the list

  8. these drinks looks mega cute! i normaly only buy water or fruit water for Bodhi but don’t see any harm in him having these #ToddlerApprovedTuesday

  9. These look lovely, we always go for a Ribena. I’m never that fussed by sugar… my daughter drinks water at home. I always drank Ribena as a child, for a treat – never had a cavity…. I’m more concerned with asparteme and fizzy drinks. my daughter has never had a fizzy drink.

    I like the look of these because they are convenient and I worry about how much fluid my child takes in during the summer months with the heat xx
