Nutritionally Complete Drink Gives Kids Immune-strengthening Probiotics

Jan. 28, 2009

Parents have a new way of providing their children with optimal nutrition and protective benefits with the launch of Boost Kid Essentials Nutritionally Complete Drink from Minnetonka, Minn.-based Nestlé HealthCare Nutrition, one of the four businesses of Nestlé Nutrition. The probiotics are in the straw.

This is the only nutritionally complete drink that gives kids ages one to 13 the power of immune-strengthening probiotics — live, active cultures that aid digestion — plus complete, balanced nutrition. Probiotics have been clinically shown to help strengthen the immune system to help keep kids healthy. The drink also fortifies a child’s diet with 25 essential vitamins and minerals, seven grams of muscle-building protein, key antioxidants and 244 calories.

Available in three flavors, chocolate, vanilla and strawberry, Boost Kid Essentials Drink is also digestion-friendly, being lactose-free and gluten-free, and does not contain high-fructose corn syrup. Its package is spill-resistant and easy to grip.

Whether a child is having trouble gaining weight, is below or slightly below growth percentiles, resists eating enough nutritious foods or needs extra nutrition to maintain an active lifestyle, Boost Kid Essentials Drink can fill in nutritional gaps and help support the strong growth and healthy immune system every child deserves. As a refreshing treat or meal, it can be part of a child’s daily diet.

Suggested retail price for a six-pack case is $11.89.
