There is no doubt that fruits and vegetables are full of necessary vitamins and minerals which help to promote health and fight off disease. It is also a known fact that most American adults and children do not consume the necessary amounts fruits and vegetables they need.

Juicing with a home juicer provides an easy way to help your family ingest more servings of fruits and vegetables in a single glass of juice. You can mix vegetables with fruits to create many different flavorful drinks. Juicing offers benefits to kids who won't eat vegetables. You can use the juicer to make a vegetable and fruit combination that masks the taste of the vegetable behind the more prominent taste of the fruit.
