Back to school time was a little different for us this year since we have a kid in college, now.
College. I sent a kid off to college. Sorry, still having trouble processing that one...
Anyway, this is where the rubber meets the road and she puts everything we've taught her over the years into action for herself. (That IS how it works, right? RIGHT?)
As a freshman, she's very fortunate to live in an amazing dorm in a suite with a kitchen, so getting the day off to a good start with breakfast should be easier than living in a traditional freshman dorm room.
She's always been athletic and good about healthy eating, so she knows the importance of a good breakfast. But, until this year school year, we've been able to assist her by providing a variety of healthy breakfast choices, and I hope that we've set a good example for her.
Now? While she does have a complete meal plan, she's on her own to stock the food and drink in her dorm where she'll most likely be eating breakfast (even though we pay dearly for said meal plan).
I did what I could to get her started with healthy eating by taking her for a grocery run before I left after dropping her off and Tropicana Pure Premium Orange Juice was part of the haul. But, I did leave wondering if, as a college student, she would get to the store regularly and buy what she needs.
We went back a few weeks after drop-off, and I was delighted to find that Tropicana Pure Premium Orange Juice made in into her fridge, even when we weren't there.
I guess it just goes to prove that you're never too old for a good back-to-school breakfast, and I'm still marveling about seeing proof that something we said actually got through!
Did you know that Tropicana Pure Premium is 100% pure and natural orange juice made from fresh Florida oranges? Yep, it comes from oranges from hard working growers in Florida.
In fact, Tropicana is the single largest buyer of Florida fruit, purchasing approximately 11.6 billion oranges from Florida each year.
