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.

Bloggers BBQ

On Friday night we packed our family in the car and drove to Melbourne to attend another fabulous Kids Business get-together, this time in the shape of a fun and family friendly Bloggers BBQ at Albert Park. For our children this was very exciting as I generally ‘work’ from home so they don’t often get the opportunity to see what I really do and who I work with.

Camp QualityKids Business Communications hosts the Bloggers BrunchTM and Bloggers BBQTM series of events where bloggers and brands meet and mingle, for more information about Kids Business visit www.kidsbusiness.com.au. Not only are these fantastic events fun for all attendees, they also raise much needed awareness and funds for different charities and this time the spotlight was on a very worthy cause called Camp Quality.

Camp Quality is a nationwide initiative that’s all about supporting Australian children (and their families) who suffer from cancer. From the moment of diagnosis, all throughout the treatment and (hopefully) remission, Camp Quality is there to offer education, recreation, respite and play to build optimism, resilience and supportive networks for families.

Camp Quality Mission

Using specially developed family support programs, education programs, hospital programs and educational programs Camp Quality aims to create a better life for every child living with cancer in Australia. All Camp Quality programs are 100% free of charge and everyone with a child under 13 years older who is diagnosed with cancer can join, there are lots of Camp Quality locations across Australia with great events being organised throughout the year.

At the Kids Business Bloggers BBQ Camp Quality was presented with a generous $500 donation, a great gesture for a wonderful charity.

Look Good… Feel Better

Bloggers Brunch

As you may have read in last week’s newsletter I swapped cold and rainy Adelaide for a few days in (just as chilly) Melbourne where I attended a special Kids Business Bloggers Brunch. Over the past few years I have made it to a few of these lovely get-togethers, the event is always jam packed (in the past I have missed out on tickets, there are so many keen bloggers who want to go) and Kids Business does an fabulous job putting together a fun, inspiring meeting that leaves bloggers feeling excited, energised and inspired.

Look Good... Feel BetterNot only is the Bloggers Brunch an excellent opportunity to meet other bloggers and discover new brands and products (and enjoy a few hours away from the kids), it is also a great way to hear from inspirational speakers and find out more about amazing charities and organisations that serve Australian people (and how you can do your share to help). Last Friday the spotlight was on Look Good… Feel Better, a charity that makes a difference to many Australians year after year.

Every year an increasing number of Australians are diagnosed with cancer and often as their world crumbles and falls so does their confidence. Look Good… Feel Better is a cosmetic industry community initiative helping cancer patients, born from a passion to revive the well being and confidence of cancer patients by providing free information, tips and workshops to make them look good and feel better. More than 1,700 trained and certified cosmetic, beauty and hairdressing professionals volunteer their time and expertise to make these workshops a success.

LGFB

Workshops are being held at over 180 venues all over Australia and each of the 10,000 yearly participants is presented with a Confidence Kit full of helpful information and free product to continue their journey at home. It is wonderful to see so many volunteers come together and work alongside each other and the neutral brand/product approach completely removes the feeling of consumerism and competitorship; Look Good… Feel Better is all about the people, not the brands.
