Monsoon is the season of revitalization. While it brings a cool and fresh aroma in the air, the pools of water left behind after heavy rain also creates the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes and disease. Our kids can be very vulnerable, and it is our responsibility as parents to take care of their health at this critical time.

Children love to go outside and play in the rain, and as parents, we can continue to protect their health and well-being without spoiling the fun.

Before you reach for that packet juice, think about what goes into it. Often, packet fruit juice contains a lot of artificial flavours, preservatives, and added sugar, sometimes even having as much sugar as a soft drink. Instead, try a healthier alternative: consider making your own fresh, homemade juice with a slow juicer.

Here are three power-packed juices for kids that will boost their immunity this monsoon season. For each of the recipes, make sure to wash and peel (if applicable) the ingredients before putting them into the fruit blender, one by one. For best results, refrigerate before serving.

Apple, beetroot, and carrot are used to make one of the most classic juices of all-time. Considered one of the best mixes for kids, it is rich in antioxidants, dietary fiber, iron, magnesium, Vitamin C, and Vitamin A.
