Jun 17 2014 - 2:11pm

Juicing is a trend that's become huge among health-conscious adults in recent years, and it's also a great way to infuse your kids' diets with veggies and fruit that may otherwise not be on the menu. A new book from family food blogger Jessica Fisher, Best 100 Juices For Kids [1], recently received a 2014 Family Choice Award in the "Best Books" category and offers a plethora of options for healthy sippers. Here, three fun ways for kids to drink their vitamins (that just may have them asking for seconds!).
