As parents, we all want the best for our kids and that includes a healthy lifestyles. Part of that healthy living is that we want them to consume things like fruits, vegetables and stay away from sodas. With school being out and the hot weather, we always keep plenty of fruits and juice around, especially the 100% Florida Orange Juice. It’s something I actually love to drink myself and we all know that the best citrus comes from Florida. When it comes to getting kids to do something that’s healthier, the Florida Department of Citrus (FDOC) is introducing a new hero to America! His name is Captain Citrus and he is helping convey the values of the Florida Citrus industry while encouraging kids to make smarter decisions concerning nutrition. Captain Citrus helps empower kids to eat healthy and reinforces the importance of 100% Florida Orange Juice as part of a healthy and yummy diet! Captain Citrus joins Marvel’s popular Avengers Assemble characters to defeat the villain, while focusing on making smart food choices along the way! Captain Citrus continues to spread the “Amazing 5” benefits of drinking 100% Florida Orange Juice through his comic and online activities: Taste, Vitamin C, Potassium, Folate and No Added Sugar. The Captain Citrus website offers two digital comic books, downloadable activity sheets, coloring sheets, crossword puzzles and much more!
Do you have kids that identify with a character or superheroes that help them get through some of their fears or something they don’t like? With the popularity of the Avengers, this is perfect to help usher in a healthier lifestyle by introducing your kids to Captain Citrus. While reading the comic book with my daughter she told me that she knew 100% Florida Orange Juice was really good, but didn’t know it was a healthy alternative to her usual drinks and I need to buy more of it. Captain Citrus teaches kids and adults also about making smarter choices in nutrition, never judging a book by the cover and being resilient, which is something we all can do in life. With so many other less than healthy options that the kids see every day, it’s always been hard trying to emphasize the importance of nutrition and I can admit I wasn’t the best role model either.
