Hello Juice! …and heeellllooo snow cone??

Jamba means “Hello” in Swahili.                                                           Today, Jamba Juice is outside our school. My kids knew of this before school and put $3.00 in their backpack.

I want to know what you think.  Do you consider this a treat? Or not a treat? 

 It has 260 calories, 1gram of fat, 53 grams of sugar (!), 2 grams of Protein, and 61 carbohydrates!  I think i would consider this a treat.

I wish they sold the light version of this caribbean passion smoothie with 1/3 fewer calories, carbs and sugar.

Just as i’m leaving to pick them up from school, my wonderful neighbor who we haven’t seen for a couple weeks calls.  Our community is having a free event with live music and ………..snow cones.  Tonight.  I say yes.  This makes two treats down in one day and we have a birthday party this weekend.  I hope there will only be cake because we are allowed just one treat for the next FIVE days.  Yeah, right. Like that is going to happen.  But we’ve got to try to stay true!

    I know, sugar is everywhere! Wait, you are lucky if it is sugar and not HFCS, lol. Our pediatrician says no more than 4 (!)oz. juice a day. That is not very much.

    • ha ha…your pediatrician is right.
      my girls didn’t think the snow cone was that big of a deal until they saw their friends and everyone else with them…then they wanted one. We did not fare very well today…thanks for your input 🙂
