Jamba Juice

Vibe: Jamba’s style is decidedly health-nut chic. Holistic practices and ingredients are a way of life here, but they serve up the smoothies with a sense of humor, rather than protein-powder enthusiasm. Jamba reminds you your body is a temple, but you can be comfortable in it, too.

Why it’s tot-friendly: Those who won’t eat their fruits and veggies can always try drinking them. The original 24-ounce size is a meal in itself, so you don’t have to feel guilty about letting juice substitute for dinner. And, a smaller size makes a great lunch on the go.

Be sure to try: Try the Acai Super-Antioxidant smoothie. With raspberries, strawberries and blueberries, your kids won’t even know (or care) that they’re boosting their immune systems by strengthening healthy cells.

Good to know: Don’t forget to add a free “boost” for energy, heart health or immunity to your smoothie for an added health advantage. Get those vitamins where you can!

Best times to go with kids: The time is always right for a healthful smoothie, but stop by when you’ve got heaps of errands to run and kids in tow. A sweet smoothie will energize and quell any protests to stop for lunch or snacks.
