Cocobella Kids

As you may remember a few weeks ago we drove to Melbourne to attend a special Kids Business event for families. It was so much fun walking around the Bloggers BBQTM and discovering new products with my own miniature testers. I think we can safely say that if our four kids try to squeeze out every last drop AND go back for seconds it’s a winner and Cocobella Kids definitely got the thumbs up.

Cocobella Kids drinks

Unless you have been living under a rock you have probably heard of coconut water, a naturally refreshing drink that is extremely popular with health conscious people worldwide. It’s not often that I think children should copy a ‘grown-up’ trend but in this case I think there are great benefits for kids to be had. The makers of Cocobella, Australia’s leading coconut water, realised this too and have come up with Australia’s first children’s coconut water drink; meet Cocobella Kids.

Cocobella Kids 3-packCocobella Kids is a lunch-box-friendly and healthy coconut water drink for kids made from 70% coconut water, 30% fruit juice and absolutely nothing else. Cocobella Kids is available in a convenient 200ml Tetra-Pak (BPA-free) and comes in two yummy fruit flavours: Apple Berry Breeze and Tropical Island. You can find Cocobella Kids (RRP $3.49 per 3-pack) at your local Woolworths supermarket.

With about 50% less sugar than most kids juices Cocobella Kids is a fantastic healthy alternative to the fruity drinks many children are currently drinking (you don’t have to take my word for it, check out the comparison chart to see how Cocobella Kids stacks up against popular kids juices). On top of that Cocobella Kids is naturally rich in electrolytes so it helps keep active kids in top shape throughout the day. You can safely pack a Cocobella Kids drink in your child’s bag without having to worry about added sugar, colours, flavours, additives or preservatives: happy kids AND happy mum.

Vital Greens

While our kids are usually very good and healthy eaters at times they could really use something extra to support their growing bodies. Especially now that they are at kindy there is so much exploring, running, climbing and of course learning to be done that I sometimes wonder if they are really getting all they need to keep up. Just like grownups kids can now enjoy a welcome nutritional boost using the newest member of the Vital Greens family: Vital Kids.

Vital Kids

Vital Kids is specifically created for children aged 5-12 and just like its older sibling it is chock-a-block full of nutrients, 56 of them to be precise. From healthy green vegetables to important vitamins and minerals, from fibres to good bacteria, from omega’s to calcium and much more, Vital Kids has got every aspect of your child’s body covered. With no sugar or anything artificial added it is a healthy and complete way to compliment your child’s everyday diet.

Vital Kids 300g ($59.95)

Vital Kids comes in powder form, just add one heaped teaspoon to a glass of water, juice or milk and turn it into a shake or you can even add it a bowl of cereal of yoghurt and create a smoothie. While the powder has a green colour (showing off the vegie content!) it actually tastes like berries, a flavour that is appealing to most children.

Of course our twins are like chalk and cheese so one enjoys the quick milk shake option while the other prefers her daily dose mixed in with in a bowl of yoghurt and fresh fruit. It’s easy to shake or make and so nice to know they’re getting an extra boost to help them keep up with their active lifestyle.

Vital Kids is gluten free, dairy free, wheat free, lactose free, yeast free, egg free and free from artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners so it fits most diets. One tub of Vital Kids (300g) costs $59.95 which lasts ca. 60 days (1x heaped teaspoon a 5g per day).
