As part of my Eating Organic Series this month, our family tried out a few new organic products.  We had been incorporating quite a few organics in our family meals.  However, we mostly centered around fresh organic produce.  So, we decided to go beyond and see what other items we could switch over to organic.

My kids drink juice every morning.  My son likes apple juice and my daughter likes orange juice.  I had always bought healthier, no sugar added varieties.  But, switching out their juice for organic versions seemed like a great place to start.

Enter Uncle Matt’s Organic orange juice!  Uncle Matt’s Organic was founded in 1999 and is still family owned and operated.  They offer premium quality organic juices, fresh fruit and organic citrus gift baskets.  Their goal is to produce the highest quality fresh fruit and juice, using only premium 100% organically-grown fruit that is free from synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Even better, their juice bottles have always been BPA free!

We decided to try out their individual organic juice boxes in our house.

My Thoughts

I love the idea of starting the kids off with an organic breakfast!  I wish I would have replaced their juice a long time ago.  Uncle Matt’s Organic definitely makes a premium orange juice.  I really like the fact that is naturally low in acid without anything “extra” added.  Overall, I was extremely pleased with their products.

Now, my daughter absolutely loves their orange juice!  She has had one of their juice boxes for breakfast every morning and has taken another one in her lunch for two weeks now!

I will say in the future, I will probably only buy the larger bottles to save on waste.  However, in situations where I have to send disposable drinks (field trips, etc) or when it is our turn to bring snacks to sporting events, these juice boxes will be perfect!
