Here, you will find a list of brands that were tested and found to be higher than .5 micrograms and ALSO the list of brands that were tested that did not test positive for lead.
Tree top apple juices are said to be safe from lead and that is on sale at albertsons this week for $1.69 :)
Interestingly, only one of the brands of the mixed fruit cocktail is listed as free of lead:
Del Monte mixed fruit. However, their fruit cocktails did not pass the test. go figure.

–When each of my three children were born...
All three have had problems with premature birth and 8 long months of bedrest is definitely worth it when you finally get to see that child for the first time! However, I have not had the opportunity to see my baby’s faces after giving birth. Due to problems related to being born early, my children have all been promptly whisked away. I had to wait 3 1/2 days to finally set eyes on my last child, my son. So, being able to see that new little face is such a wonderful moment!
–When I had all three of my children experiencing a major milestone all at the same time...
My oldest daughter started High School, my youngest daughter started Kindergarten, and I gave birth to my son, all within a period of 3 months!! That was definitely my favorite year to look back on, and our “best of times” as a growing family.
–Most currently, When my youngest child snuggles up to me at night to go to sleep. It is definitely my favorite part of every day. That, and watching his face in the morning, as he sleeps- just before he wakes up. He is ALWAYS so happy to wake up to Mommy. This brings such happiness to me, and I live for it.

I hope you enjoy it and get some good insight into how to teach our kids the value of money.
My 7 year old already thoroughly enjoys using a COUPON to buy something on her own. from a candy treat, to a stuffed animal, she has learned already that its more fun to get things you want when you pay less, and that coupons can be a valuable tool to help you stay within your budget.
here is the article:
Money matters. As our kids enter their teens, they will also be entering the work force and need to have all of the tools necessary to survive the green jungle. Here are the top five ways to teach teens about money and what to do with it.
1. Knowledge Is Power
There’s no better way to start your teen off on the right foot than to educate them about money early on. Kids are sponges and teens are no exception. So it’s important you teach your teenager the value of a dollar and how taxes, investments, and savings work. How to budget, and how to stick to it are also important things to teach. You’ve been through all this remember, they haven’t. Share your hard won experience with them. They’ll soak it up and will have a better grasp on things when they enter the work force.
2. Bank Account
Setting a teen up with a bank account is only the beginning. They also need to understand how important it is to keep money in it. Have them put a portion of their allowance or pay check in their account. Show them how to save for a necessary big ticket item and for college. They’ll also learn how the banking world works but they’ll need careful tutoring when it comes to credit.
3. Part Time Job
There’s no substitute for experience and encouraging your teen to join the work force is the only way for him or her to get that experience. They’ll gather firsthand knowledge of how to find and keep a job, pay taxes, and save while learning the responsibilities that go with the job. They are going to spend the next several decades working at one job or another. The sooner they learn this, the better off they will be.
4. Pay Their Way
If the teen is working while living at home, then you might have them help with the household expenses. Whether you need the contributions or not, have them chip in. They’ll learn how much it costs to keep a roof over their head and you can’t put a price on that. Also, if you don’t need their money, you can set up a bank account for them and dump the money in there to give them as a nest egg when they move out.
5. Let Them Pay The Piper
This is the toughest item on the list but, ultimately, can be the most rewarding. Even if your teen has taken everything you’ve told them about handling money to heart, they might still wind up in over their head at some point. The key here is to let them get themselves out of it. Don’t bail them out. Offer advice, encouragement and so on but let them learn the consequences of irresponsible spending. If you whip out your checkbook at the first sign of trouble, your teen will be convinced this safety net will always be there to catch them when they fall and they won’t learn to stand on their own financial feet.
