KIDStrong® Hydration Beverage Review & Giveaway

Thursday, August 12, 2010
It's summer, and that means plenty of outdoor play for the kids. Summer's heat combined with high activity levels make it difficult for children to stay both hydrated and energized.
KIDStrong® hydration beverages are designed for active children between the ages of 4 and 13. An excellent alternative to caffeine drinks and sugary sports drinks, KIDStrong® is healthy, nutritious and naturally addresses a growing child's need for strength and energy.

I couldn't wait for my girls to try KIDStrong®. Once I received my samples, I promptly refrigerated them as they are best enjoyed cold. The next day, we headed to the park with our KIDStrong®.

1. Contains all natural ingredients. Unlike most sports drinks, KIDStrong® does not contain high fructose corn syrup, but rather crystalline sugar, which is the natural form of sugar found in fruits.

2. Stresses the physical needs of growing children rather than athletes in training. KIDStrong® offers a balanced blend of vitamins and minerals designed for growing children.

3. Pleasant tasting. Both the orange and grape flavors were true to taste and flavor. My 4 year old loved both flavors. You won't find colors that resemble radioactive waste in KIDStrong®!

4. Nutritionally sound. Per serving, KIDStrong® is loaded with 225 mg of potassium, an important electrolyte that is lost during physical activity when children sweat. One 8 oz. serving contains only 7 grams of sugar and 90 mg of sodium.

1. My 8 year old wasn't particularly fond of the orange flavor. She said it resembled cough syrup, but she loved the grape flavor.

Need more proof that KIDStrong is® the best hydration beverage for your children? Beginning next month, 60 schools throughout select New York state school systems will offer KIDStrong to the student.

I'd love to try this! I try to not give my daughter anything other than water or milk, but sometimes a hydration beverage would come in handy. But I don't like all of the sugar that comes with most of them! This looks like a wonderful alternative that might be a staple in our pantry!

thanks for the great giveaway!

My son is highly sensitive to artificial colors and flavors. I'd like something to offer him that hydrates but not winds him up.
