Nutritionist (and her children) weigh in on The Healthy Mummy Kids Chocolate Smoothie

Our Healthy Mummy Kids Chocolate Smoothie is SO yummy that our Healthy Mummy community (well, their kiddies) have been LOVE, LOVE, LOVING IT!

It was our mission to create a product for children that is healthy, minus any added sugar, jam packed with nutrition (including probiotics) and even entice little fussy-eaters.

A healthy kids snack, free from all the nasties

The main difference between the Healthy Kids Smoothie and most other commercially bought chocolate drinks is that other brands contain LOTS of added sugars. Milo, for example, is 46 per cent sugar (mostly added).

In addition, unlike other chocolate drinks, our Kids Smoothie has plenty of goodies including:

  • 16 vitamins and minerals (Milo has 9 vitamins and minerals)
  • Probiotics (to assist with healthy gut function)
  • 188mg of calcium per 10g serve (Milo contains 170mg of calcium per 20g serve)
  • The sugar content in The Healthy Kids Smoothie is from NATURAL sugars from the lactose in the milk and is FREE from added sugars.

We have had so many mums email us to let us know that their kids are loving these smoothies and how RELIEVED they are feeling their kids are sipping on nutritiously filled and vitamin loaded snacks.

But, what does a professional nutritionist have to say about our NEW kids product?

What Elisha Danine had to say about the Kids Chocolate Smoothie

We received our tub of Healthy Mummy Kids Chocolate Smoothie and Miss 6 couldn’t wait to try it.

As a mum and nutritionist, I am always looking at ways to achieve the ideal nutrients in my children’s daily diet (which can be difficult when you have a fussy eater).

My daughter loved the taste of the Kids Chocolate Smoothie, and has subsequently asked for it daily.

I really love the fact that there is no added sugar in the smoothie and that it also contains added probiotics.

I would be more than happy to recommend this nutritional drink to any parent looking to improve their children’s health.

It’s a big tick from us.
