Like any mom, I am concerned for my children’s health as they are growing. We hear so much about the risks of obesity and it’s link to heart disease, cancer, diabetes and other health struggles. It’s a sad fact that today, so many children are overweight.
As I pursue my journey to a healthier me, I am also conscience of how my choices impact my children. I am including healthier meals, more fruits and veggies, limited fried foods and reading labels to cut back on the amount of high sugar drinks I’m providing my children.
My kiddos play outside, though I try and limit their playtime during the high-heat parts of the day to indoors. They run, they climb they are VERY active. I force water at them, but there are times when they just gotta have a punch of flavor and I appreciate added electrolytes to keep them going.
KIDStrong ™ Enterprises contacted me recently to do a review of their new hydration drink, and I jumped on it! The KIDStrong beverages come in two flavors at this time — Natural Orange and Natural Grape. We take reviewing seriously and so out the door my kiddos flew. They played hard. Up the trees, around the playground, running, jumping and so much more. Then, near exhaustion they came inside and demanded “liquid”. I handed them a cold KIDStrong.
They chugged it and said they really liked it….”even better than Gatorade”. It cooled them off and seemed to recharge them because they didn’t stay in long after the KIDStrong was gone.
Hands down the grape was the preferred flavor. They thought it was “the best but Orange is tastes good too”.
KIDStrong is making my role as a Mom easier to provide healthy options. Even more than that, they have Healthy Hydration down to a science. KIDStrong understands that not all sugars are equal. The KIDStrong brand has a four-stage carbohydrate blend, an electorlyte blend as well as a Vitamin and Mineral Blend in every single KIDStrong hydrating beverage. You can read about these various blends and their benefits by visiting the KIDStrong website.
