BOOST® Kid Essentials Drink

If you have a picky eater, you understand all too well the frustrations of the dinner table. Constantly bargaining and battling to get more food in, while worrying that your child is not getting the proper nutrients.

Good news from Nestle! Introducing a brand new child friendly drink that provides 25 essential vitamins and minerals, 7 grams of protein, plus key antioxidants. Even the straw is healthy, containing probiotics - live microorganisms containing potentially beneficial bacteria or yeasts - clinically shown to help strengthen immune systems.

Whew! That's the nutritional breakdown. Obviously an exceptionally healthy choice, but how do these taste? In a word - mmmmmm. Available in chocolate, strawberry or vanilla, these are sweet, with the texture of slightly thickened milk. They passed our stringent "picky kid" test with flying colors. Coincidentally, they also passed our less stringent "chocolate loving adult" test.

I'm quite sure that I am not the only mother who enjoys fooling my children with healthy foods disguised as treats. Part of my success must be credited to the fun, bright packaging (also very sturdy) and the fancy extendable straw. The net effect: very cool for kids.

Although we are excited about these because of Captain Picky, they would also be ideal for children who are struggling to gain weight or very active kids who just need that boost of extra nutrition to maintain their busy schedules.

These are readily available in most grocery & convenience stores, but if you have a problem finding them, call Nestlé Nutrition at 1-800-247-7893.
