This could come in very useful, thanks op.

Always £5 in farmfoods from end of last year

Full of sugar!

Just so you know, these seem to be made of 95% sweetener and 5% vaguely fruity flavourings and taste like coctail of sugar with some random chemicals. My kid started running on walls after one bottle.

^^^^^ Same here. Went to a friends house and she gave one to my son. The effects were horrendous!!! never again.

Makes me laugh when people kicked up a huge fuss (and rightly so) when these were filled to the brim with sugar, but then they replace it with sweetener and still people kick off. All it essentially is, is Robinsons squash in a bottle. There's nothing terribly malicious in it... it has natural flavourings, natural colourings. Sure, it has preservatives, but then there's no avoiding that. The sugar in a 200ml bottle is around 1/3 a teaspoon. Which let's be honest here, is nothing...

They really need to remarket/repackage it to shake off the image that it's full of additives, etc. I don't think the colour of the bottle helps.

Exactly why I don't let my daughter have it. It's like giving her a can of Redbull.

£4.42 for 24 at Costco until the 8th June if you're a member

The drinks with full sugar are far better for you than the ones with artificial sweeteners. Fruit shoots, like Robinsons contains asparteme which is really bad for you. Full sugar and a proper toothbrush all the way here!

Really? That's one of the silliest things I've ever heard! Sugar contains tons of calories, with absolutely no proteins, essential fats, vitamins or minerals… just pure energy. It's 100% undeniably known that it causes liver problems (from processing it), heart problems (no need to explain), brain problems (as in, you can become addicted), stomach problems (weight) and general organ problems (diabetes) if somebody has a diet high in it.

Sweeteners have been tested by all countries relevant health agencies, and have concluded they are safe to use, in moderation. And by moderation I mean, rats have been given doses that are the equivalent to us drinking 1000-2000 cans of soft drink containing sweeteners PER DAY before a small number of them shown signs of cancer.

Truth is, cancer has been around for thousands of years, long before scientists were concocting chemicals in labs. Toxins and pollutants are everywhere, day to day in the air we live in... and there's no avoiding it. If people think cutting out sweeteners is going to stop them getting cancer, then they are kidding themselves!

Somehow cancer rates climbs up extremely fast in the last two-three decades. Also sugars can be delivered from the natural sources, there are plenty of those available in the shops, also in drinks/snacks (although these don't cost £5 per tonne). To put things into perspective - a cube of sugar weights about 4 grams. Sugar contents in one banana is about 12. Will you start telling us now that fruit are unhealthy and we should stop eating them? Would you rather give your child two bananas, or two spoonfuls of artificial sweetener?

We had no sweeteners, low-calorie 'lignt' marketing nonsense full of chemicals and yet mass obesity was never the problem for generations. It's a deep-fried takeaway with mayo and extra cheese munched in front of TV three times a week that makes your ass fat, not naturally occurring sugars in your apple juice. Having a diet coke with it instead won't help.

Of course fruit isn't unhealthy, but obviously you need protein and liquid in your diet along with it. Getting sugar from a banana is entirely different to from a bar of chocolate or a can of coke for example, which gets processed far quicker and you'll get sugar cravings sooner.

And you can't really say "would you rather give your child a banana or a drink of fruit shoot". One is a solid food and the other is a liquid, you need both of them to survive. A better alternative would be milk, or preferably dairy free milk like almond, soy and rice milk. Which are low in natural sugar, high in calcium and have no sweeteners, etc. But the hardest part is getting a kid to accept it! It isn't easy in this day and age to shield them away from the bright colours of soft drinks bottles!

Frankly we never had this problem, my 7yr old doesn't even like fizzy drinks. from the young age she was getting 100% juice or water with her lunch instead of Ribenas and other flavoured water, so her body never got used to over-sweetened chemicals. She always picks natural juice instead of coloured water without having to argue about it. Same goes for the food, ask her any time if she wants fish and chips or baked potato with broccoli and she'll go for the latter. But then again - we never gave her processed junk food or jars for lazy parents from the very beginning. Our friends have hyperactive kid and yet take him to McD few times a week, it's not poor boy's fault that he's pumped with sugar and fats that make him go crazy.

And yes, we both worked and had busy lives, but that extra 30min a day preparing fresh food makes hell lot of difference. It's not even more expensive like urban myths say. Bag of vegetables and some couscous are way cheaper than tesco pizza for three. Now she's got a selection if pasta&cheese, pizzas etc. at school and yet went for cooked vegetables or soup every day for the last 2 years.


Parents are responsible for most of the things kids do. If they see adults eating microwave chips with cola, they'll do the same. People give kids those Fruit Shoots daily (that frankly make me want to vomit after one bottle) and then are surprised if they spend lunch money on sweets in few years' time.
