I know its a long list but I wanted to gather it up here for you to save you time.
KIDStrong comes in three different flavors your child will love. Fruit Punch, Orange, and Grape.
 Lots of drinks claim to be healthy, but the issue is they say they can say they are not made with high fructrose corn syrup all they want, but they are still made with corn syrup. I feel very strongly about the over use of corn syrup in all of our foods nowadays. Its quite frankly disgusting. Then, their are commercials about how its the same as sugar and they have a bad rep. Yes, they do, and they should. I suppose a little is fine in moderation .. but it is in everything! I am not going to sit here and lie to you and say there is absolutely none on our diets. I wish there wasn't. But unless you are rich, or have a personal chef, it's hard to not get some of it into your diet. I used to never read the back label of products. 
Ignorance is bliss they say!
Check out the nutrition info of one of their drinks (You can find the others on their website, by using the links in this blog post)



What we thought:

 I try to be entirely honest in my posts, and today is no different This is definitely a kids drink. It didn't appeal to me. It was not gross in the slightest, more like a more kool-aid (ish) Gatorade. However: I am loving coffee and tea (extra sweet please!) and this doesn't call to me. But, I will say I wouldn't refuse it. I guess the sweeteners in it I am not used to?
BUT
I am also not going to lie to you again. Giana LOVED it! There is not a single drink left and they shipped the case about 2 weeks ago. I only had one of them, so she drank them all! She would choose them over her bottled waters (which she loves..) and over the sweet tea as well. Her favorite flavor was Fruit Punch!

I wish we had these when Giana played soccer this past spring! These are perfect for an athletic child!
Refuel and Re-hydrate!


What I most respect?
