I participated in this sponsored campaign for One2One Network. I received monetary compensation and product to facilitate my post, but all opinions stated are my own.
Temperatures have been steadily on the rise in Illinois. Some of the heat we’ve been experiencing has been so extreme that I’ve felt like it was safer to keep the kids inside with air conditioning than outside playing their favorite games. Many of our trips to the playground have even been cut short. When it’s that hot out my #1 worry is that I’m not keeping the kids hydrated enough. We bring along water bottles when we’re outside playing but getting a kid in my house to drink plain water is a struggle. They want flavor! The alternative is juice pouches filled with dyes and excessive amounts of sugar. No thank you!
A great alternative to boring water and over-sugared juice pouches is Vita Coco Kids drink pouches. When I first looked over the Nutrition label I was very happy to see that the first and most prominent ingredient is coconut water. I was even happier to see that artificial dyes aren’t listed on there at all because there are NONE! My only hangup is the fact that there is added sugar but when compared to the leading juice kids’ juices, it’s only half of what you would find it those. Plus there’s the addition of vitamin C, calcium and potassium – a nutrient that both children and adults don’t get enough of, according to the US Dietary Guidelines.
Most importantly, the Vita Coco Kids drinks come in 3 flavors that my kids seem to enjoy. Kaydee describes the “Very Cherry Beach” as tart, while Emma says the “Apple Island” tastes just like apple juice. Vita Coco Kids is packaged in Tetra Pak, an eco- and socially-responsible form of packaging based on the use of wood fiber, a sustainable source. You’ll be able to find Vita Coco Kids at major retailers nationwide starting July, including Target and online at Amazon, for a suggested retail price of $4.99 for a 6 pack.
