Odwalla is introducing a new line of lunchbox-suitable, not-from-concentrate smoothies, giving parents a great new option to serve their families.
With a smooth texture, new Odwalla Smoothies For Kids come in three kid-friendly flavors: Strawberry Banana Jungle™, Mango Pineapple Island™ and Grape Berry Prairie™. Each of the new smoothies is gluten-free, 100 percent juice with other ingredients, and all contain one whole serving of fruit.
Conveniently packaged in easy-to-hold drink boxes, the smoothies are perfect for lunchboxes or on-the-go use. They are available for purchase in 6.75 fl. oz. single units and in four-pack bundles. With no added sugar and 110-120 calories per box, they also are a great source of vitamin C (see nutrition facts for sugar and calorie content).
“Our line of Odwalla Smoothies For Kids is a convenient—and delicious—way for moms to help their families get several nutrients they need for good health,” said Irma Shrivastava, VP of marketing for Odwalla Inc. “We’re dedicated to helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children, one fruit at a time.”
To strengthen its commitment to nutritious and accessible snack options for children, Odwalla is now a proud supporter of HealthyChildren.org, the official parenting website of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)—the nation’s largest pediatric organization with a membership of 60,000 primary care pediatricians, pediatric medical sub-specialists and pediatric surgical specialists.
“We are pleased to have Odwalla as a proud supporter of HealthyChildren.org,” said Dr. Jennifer Shu, medical editor of HealthyChildren.org from the AAP. “Helping parents and caregivers know where to go online for nutritional information for their children is important to both AAP and Odwalla.”
Packaging of all three Odwalla Smoothies For Kids flavors will feature the HealthyChildren.org logo. Odwalla Smoothies For Kids can be found in the refrigerated section of natural food stores, select supermarkets and specialty outlets throughout the United States.
