Raise your hands if your kids are PERFECT and eat all of their fruits and veggies without complaining!!!
There is probably one, maybe two people who could raise their hand (honestly…you can’t fool us!) because let’s face it: Kids can be picky.
We do our best to introduce them to good foods that we know are tasty and really good for their growing bodies, but it does take time for them to accept it. Green colored foods just don’t look as appetizing as beige or candy colored.
I know. I hear you. I am right there with you!
I get asked regularly if Shakeology is good for kids. The short answer is yes, but we also say that it really depends on the kid AND their needs. One big concern many parents have is that Shakeology, although made with gluten free ingredients, it is not certified gluten free and they were concerned about other possible allergen and sensitivities. In short, we are willing to give the best to our kids!!!!!! Maybe not to ourselves, but to our kids, we will not spare giving them what they need.
Welcome Daily Sunshine.
Daily Sunshine was specifically created with the nutritional needs of kids in mind. It was made for picky kids and for pickier parents. It has the nutrition that our kids need to help support their constantly growing bodies. As parents, this is important to us. If you have a child who struggles with eating their veggies, then you can be sure their bodies are not getting what they need, so this is FOR YOUR CHILD!
Daily Sunshine comes in two flavors: Chocolate and Strawberry Banana. Each flavor is made with organic fruits and vegetables, organic pea protein, and healthy fats, and has 3 grams of fiber, probiotics, Vitamins C& E, calcium, and vitamin D. I love that Daily Sunshine is soy-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, and non- GMO, and it contains no artificial flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives.
How do I make Daily Sunshine?
It is so easy! All you need is 1 scoop or packet of your choice flavor and 8 oz of water (or your choice milk if you would like to boost the calorie intake a bit, which with water is 120 calories). It is a high quality snack for your kids and guess what….for you too!!!!
I will advise that this is NOT a meal replacement. For children and their growing bodies, good quality calories count right now, as they are still growing. Unless your child is under the care of their pediatrician and need to be on a special diet or calorie cutting due to health issues associated with their weight, simply treat Daily Sunshine as a highly nutritious snack.
Here is a great video about Daily Sunshine from the creator, Isabelle Daikler:
My kids also tested for themselves. I mixed it up for them: Madi drank Strawberry Banana and Sean drank Chocolate. I only mixed it with water. While they were doing their homework, I asked them to taste test my new snack option that I had for them. These are their initial reactions.
*Disclosure: Sean initially said he liked Chocolate, but after he drank it a little more, he did comment that he would like his made next time with milk. Just so you know! That is his honest opinion. Today, he just asked for Daily Sunshine for a snack with his homework, which means he does like it and I am happy to make it for him!
What is the difference between Daily Sunshine and Shakeology?
Daily Sunshine provides key nutrients in a simple yet healthy formula designed for young, growing bodies. Shakeology focuses on providing an array of exotic superfoods, adaptogens, prebiotics, digestive enzymes, and other important nutrients for adult bodies. While they both have unique ingredients, Daily Sunshine and Shakeology contain some overlapping essential ingredients, but at different levels to suit nutritional needs of kids and adults.
Can I drink both Daily Sunshine and Shakeology?
Yes!! If you are already consuming Shakeology as part of your nutrition plan, simply use Daily Sunshine as a really simple yet nutritious snack in between meals.
Of course, if you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to let me know! I would love to share more with you and help you in any way possible.
