Mooching round the supermarket later that day, we saw various drinks ranging from Blah to Bleurgh. I pointed out coconut water to him and he looked at me like I had lost my marbles! An hour later, we arrived home disappointed. I checked my emails and would you believe it...an invitation from Vita Coco Kids to try samples of their new naturally flavoured coconut water, especially made for kids. Was that timing or what?
So, that's what my munchkins thought. If you are thinking about maybe popping a carton of this in your kid's lunchbox, here are the stats for you.
The drinks have no artificial colourings or preservatives, no added sugar. Not made from concentrate and contains 5g of sugar and 22 calories; compared with the leading UK kids juice drink which has 7.8g sugar and 40 calories per 100ml. It also contains 170mg of potassium whereas the leading UK kids chilled juice drink contains 0mgs potassium. Major bonus though, it fits in lunchboxes and is compliant with my son's school 'healthy lunchbox' policy.
