As with most kids, mine are juice fiends. Happily drinking up cup after cup of juice if given the opportunity. And drinking a juice box, is even more exciting to them. Something about having a portable, little container to carry around on their own gives them a new sense of independence.
While my kids may love juice, I try to limit their consumption to once per day because traditional juices are loaded with so much sugar. Last month, I was sent a box of the new Vita Coco Kids pack which includes six, 6 fl. oz. drinks for my family to try out.
Earlier this week, I told you how much I love coconut. But no matter how much I try, I cannot force myself to love coconut water. It might just be the brands I’ve tried and I’ll likely keep trying because I want to love straight coconut water.
I wasn’t quite sure what my girls would think of the Vita Coco Kids, since they’re not loaded with the sugary sweetness of traditional fruit juices. From the time I pulled the juices out of the box, they were enthralled with the cute animals and fruits on the front. From their first sip, they were hooked and sucked down every last drop!
As a mom, I was happy they were enjoying a healthier alternative to traditional juices. Not only do Vita Coco Kids have 50% less sugar than leading kids’ juice, they have nearly half the calories, and are a source of potassium and Vitamin C. These beverages made especially for kids ages 2-8 are available in three new flavors – Apple Island, Very Cherry Beach, and Paradise Punch.
With kids heading back to school soon, this is a beverage you can feel confident about sending with your child. Not only is the contents wholesome, but Vita Coco Kids is packaged in Tetra Pak, which is an eco-friendly packaging made with wood fiber.
Buy It: Vita Coco Kids released in July and and is available at major retailers like Target and online at Amazon, for a suggested retail price of $4.99 per 6 pack box of 6 fl.oz. drinks.
