Pocoyo & Langer's Juice Team Up to Keep Kids Active



Summertime challenges even the most creative parents with how to keep the kids entertained, active and limit all day snacking.
Pocoyo and Langers Juice may have the ideal solution!  
Beginning August 1 through August 31, parents can receive an all-new Pocoyo DVD – Dance Pocoyo Dance!–with the purchase of 10 Langers Juices (plus $1.99 shipping and handling), while supplies last.
The Dance Pocoyo Dance! DVD, based on the Pocoyo animated television series, will encourage kids to get up and dance, jump and have fun for hours.  The music provides high-energy participation, and Pocoyo and his animal friends, Elly the elephant, Pato the duck, and Loula the dog, add to the excitement.  It’s a good workout for Mom and Dad, too.  Kids can quench their thirst with Langers Juice after dancing with Pocoyo while watching Dance Pocoyo Dance!.
The multi-award-winning animated television series Pocoyo is now featured in a new half-hour timeslot during the weekends on Nick Jr., on Saturday’s and Sunday’s at 1.00pm ET/10am PT, complementing the current weekday broadcasts at 4:25 pm Eastern/1:25 pm Pacific. Pocoyo also airs on Univision’s Planeta U on Saturday mornings at 8:30 am; and on select PBS stations nationwide(check local listings).  Additionally, Pocoyo toys are available at Toys”R”Us and amazon.com

Langers Juice, in kid-friendly juice flavors like orange, red grape, white grape, grape with vitamin C, and pineapple, are available nationwide at retailers including WalMart, Albertsons, Econo Foods, Food 4 Less, Lucky, Market Basket, Miners, Ralphs, Smart & Final, Sprouts, and Staters, among others.
And as the temperatures soar, Moms and their kids can use Langers Juice to create their own healthy and refreshing fruit juice popsicles!  Simply pour 4 oz of juice into a paper cup and pop it into the freezer.  When the juice freezes, kids can eat the frozen treat with a spoon, or simply lick the cold concoction, peeling back the paper cup as needed.


Parents know that sodas, sports drinks, sweetened juice or fruit-juice cocktails have too much sugar, too many calories or too many additives.  That’s why Langers 100% fruit juice is the smart choice for parents and their kids.
Mayo Clinic Nutritionist Katherine Zeratsky, R.D., L.D., says that while whole fruit is the best choice, certain types of fruit juice can be a healthy part of your child's diet.
 Recent studies have confirmed that drinking moderate amounts of 100 percent fruit juice doesn't affect a child's weight. What 100% fruit juice does offer is more vitamins and nutrients and fewer additives than other drink choices.
The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Heart Association recommends that children between 6 months and 6 years can safely consume 4 to 6 ounces (118 to 177 milliliters) of 100% fruit juice a day; while those 7 years and older can consume between 8 to 12 ounces (237 to 355 milliliters) per day.  About 4 ounces (118 milliliters) of 100% fruit juice equals one serving of fruit.

This is so important and good to know. My dear friend gives her kids something that is so sugar filled it is really kind of sad. I wish I could wave a magic wand and have her switch...but parenting is so personal, you know?

That's a good initiative to keep children active and healthy.

Not watching tv really cuts down on commercials.
