Thought about bringing some over but when it run's out then what?

My two boys have waaaay too much energy anyway so they drink filtered water and organic rice milk (which is probably contaminated with cyanide OR is it arsenic) - not at the same time though....

Good luck in your search!!!!

That's the solution - pre-made fruit cocktail diluted 75-25 to 50-50 with water tastes just like squash (and saves money, too!).

Most of the ones we seem to get are just straight juice without added sugar or chemicals, and there are plenty of varieties (i.e. blueberry/ cranberry/ raspberry/ pomegranate).

No orange, however, but you learn to cope

Having said that, we've some friends coming over this week and part of their visitation tax is a bottle of Robinson's high-juice.

LOL I am thinking I must be evil Mum, not letting them have juice/squash - my kids have milk, choccy milk on pay day (lol) and water.

My daughter went to a party at the weekend and had a bottle of Panda Pop (or whatever its called) and bloody hell she was mental when she got home.

Mine used to drink orange and blackcurrant in the UK, younger one would NOT drink anything but blackcurrant

NOW, hes actually drinking chocolate milk (amazed), apple juice (amazed again), orange juice and lots of water.

I have also tried cranberry & apple from Sobeys but add a bit extra water to it as seems quite strong this went down well.

All just a case of re-adjusting

It isn't and my kids aren't fat either.

Your reply above sounded very pretentious

Minute Maid makes an orange punch which might be a decent orange squash option:

Well...your answer sounds plain argumentative and I don't get caught up in all that on here....I didn't suggest your kids were fat OR that they ate at Macdonalds...Frankly haven't a clue who you are soooooo......Perhaps you should just back off....I was joining a general discussion on orange squash and what we all drink.....Not really a big issue I would think.....
Go get some sleep

It's a shame that a simple question that this started with to make the move easier gets turned into a slanging match between individuals.

The forum here is a very useful aid to get peoples views and opinions and generally find out info. Thanks to all the sensible replies

My kids mostly drink fruit juice diluted with water - I buy the frozen ones and add extra water to them when I make it up - they haven't noticed so far!

We also get ribena occasionally as a treat. And milk, water, the occasional hot chocolate. And my 10 yr old has recently developed a taste for tea, so she drinks that.

I refuse to let them drink Kool-aid (ie the strange powdered stuff) because of the fact that I use it to dye wool - if it does that to wool just imagine what it would do to your insides

And besides, the one time I did let them have a taste of it I was scraping them off the ceilings for hours!

Well...You win the prize for the best use for Kool aid!!! My three yr old has also developed a taste for tea....Everytime I put my cup down he makes a dive for it....!!! Can't be good!!!
