True Lemon Kids: 92% Less Sugar Per Serving Than Juice & Soda
American children consume roughly 81 grams of sugar per day, says the American Heart Association(1). The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends that children consume no more than 30-35 grams of sugar per day(2).

“We believe hydration can be delicious without a lot of sugar,” said Robert Cuddihy, CEO of True Citrus. “Families have so many beverage options for their children, but few of them are low-sugar or naturally-sweetened. Hydration is a foundation of a healthy, happy lifestyle. Thanks to simpler, Non-GMO ingredients and great tasting flavors, we think True Lemon® Kids is an easy win parents can feel good about.”

Each serving of True Lemon® Kids has 2g of sugar in an 8-ounce serving, while most juices and sodas have 24g of sugar in the same 8-ounce serving. Available in Pink Lemonade, Fruit Punch, and Blue Raspberry flavors, True Lemon® Kids products are available nationwide at Walmart and at

True Lemon Kids: Helping Kids Stay Hydrated
According to The American Journal of Public Health, half of all children aren’t adequately hydrated(3).

“It’s hard being a parent these days,” said Heidi C. Carney, Executive Vice President of Marketing for True Citrus. “We’re all dealing with so much due to COVID-19 and there’s a lot of competing advice about what’s good for our kids. True Lemon Kids can make a small part of the day easier. While plain water is the best beverage kids can drink, this is a great alternative to juice or soda — and for children who don’t like drinking plain water. It’s a delicious way to boost hydration.”
