02.What to buy

As any dietitian will tell you, water is the best everyday drink for children. The occasional 100% fruit juice is fine, however, and can add variety to their lunchbox. Just keep it to a 125mL serve if you’re filling the drink bottle yourself, and dilute with water to provide better hydration.

But if the convenience of a popper is what you’re after, the products listed here:

  • Contain no added sugar
  • Deliver 340kJ or less per pack – roughly the equivalent of a medium apple or orange (although the larger serve size of some isn’t ideal).

Prices are per 100mL.

*Toddler Pops are just 35% juice, but otherwise meet our criteria – just bear in mind you’re paying the price for juice diluted with water.
