News: Jamba Juice - New Kid's Meals

Jamba Juice now offers kid's meals for the first time, taxing their name as a prefix and calling them "Jamba Kid's Meals". The better-for-you brand touts that each meal "contains two and one-half servings of fruits and/or vegetables, a serving of whole grains, and provides an excellent source of protein."

Each kid's meal includes a 9.5-ounce smoothie paired with a child-friendly food choice. Each smoothie has no added sugar and are made from only fruit and juice except for the Berry Beet It smoothie, which also contains vegetables.

Of course, what's a kid's meal without some sort of toy; they each come with stickers and a color-changing straw.

There are a total of four smoothies and two food options for the new kid's meal. For food, the choices are:

- Cheesy Stuffed Pretzel - A whole wheat pretzel with melted mozzarella and ricotta cheese inside.
