I love it when I find great alternatives for the kids especially when it has nothing in it that can cause an allergic reaction. When I first saw the opportunity to work with Body Armor I took it.
Bodyarmor is a super drink made from coconut water, electrolytes, vitamins, and a natural sweetener. I was nervous about the 13 grams of sugar, but then I realized its a serving for 2 and not one person.
The flavors I received were Fruit Punch, Tropical Punch, Strawberry Banana, Mixed Berry, Lemon Lime, and Orange Mango. I personally tried the Mixed Berry and sucked it down within a few minutes. I was a little disappointed that it was gone . It tasted exactly like mixed berry would taste like. It’s sweet and since it has coconut water, I didn’t feel guilty in drinking the whole bottle even though its a servings for 2.
My favorite part is that it doesn’t have any caffeine, soy, corn syrup, tree nuts, gluten, or preservatives! Body Armor is filled with 600mg of potassium, but altogether its a blend of 704 thanks to the coconut water. It has Vitamins A, C, & E as well as B3, B4, B6, B9, and B12!
After checking the label, I let the kids have their own bottle . They are used to just water or coconut milk. I rarely give my kids any type of fruit juice or anything of that sorts due to the sugar and load of corn syrup. The kids loved it! They asked me to order some more for the lunch boxes. They wanted to bring BodyArmor Sports Drink with them to the park so they can run faster (shhh don’t tell them that its good for them and to help them stay hydrated. LOL), but I let them finish it when we got back and all I heard was heavy breathing! LOL
I could definitely see BodyArmor Sports Drink being apart of our weekly grocery shipping list. I managed to find these in my local Target! WOOT! I may not even share them! LOL
