Peter Rabbit Organics Juice

New to hit the shelves is this range of children's juices called Peter Rabbit Organics Juices designed for kids as young as 6 months. They come in 150ml mini cartons and are packed with a straw making them easy to just pop in a bag for a journey out and about.

They are made of a gentle blend of organic juice and water with no added sugar, preservatives or artificial ingredients. They are available in three flavours which are Pear, Apple and Grape and Blackcurrant and Apple Juice.

I was offered the opportunity to let Beastie try out these juices. We were sent one of each of the flavours shown above. As you can see the packaging is colour coded to the flavour and each has a picture of Peter Rabbit himself. The cartons didn't last long in our house so all three flavours were trialled rather quickly! We did manage to take one carton out with us and this obviously was handy and mess free. So many childrens beakers have leaked on us before so these take that worry out of the equation.

When trying the juices, (I had to give Beastie a hand here for quality control purposes) I found them to taste very diluted with a hint of fruit. Beastie loved them so much than once he had finished one carton he was requesting 'more more'. Although this is a good sign that he enjoyed the contents it also meant that he hadn't had quite enough. These juices in that respect are perfect for babies who don't need a larger fluid intake. Realistically we would need two cartons to quench his thirst. The pleasing aspect about these juices is that they are a refreshing and more tooth friendly alternative to such drinks like Robinsons Fruit Shoots, which in my opinion are terribly sweet.

If you would like to try these cartons for yourself they are available to buy at Sainsbury's, Waitrose, Asda, Booths, Whole Foods and Ocado plus a selection of independent retailers for a RRP of 55p each.

Nb. I was kindly sent these juices to review. I have shared the experience and expressed views that are entirely my own.


  1. They sound yummy. My little one only has water at the moment but the older one would like them. I don't let her have fruit shoots (she had one once and was a nightmare!)

  2. They sound yummy. I am a bit of a kid when it comes to drinks, I don't like tea or coffee and so I drink a lot of coke and I love a bit of capri sun which is a bit of kiddies drink! xx

    I honestly don't know why anyone buys thouse fruit shoots. Apart from making your child hyper they are a sure fire way to rot their teeth! x

    We had some of these for Jack to try ,I thought they were a bit watery too, but he loved them. Did you see my comp to win 20 cartons of them? They would keep Beastie going for a while!
