invited us to an informative, and interactive kids’ food experience where we could sip, slurp and create delicious treats with their new, 100% probiotic drink for kids. Given Juliet loves any chance to cook, (the girl sleeps with her whisk for heaven’s sake!) I knew she would get a kick out of this. So I took her along for the ride and boy was I happy I did! Here she is checking out the beautiful interiors of Freshmade NYC
where the event was held.
While she happily sipped away (and downed 2 whole Bio Kidz drinks..suffice it to say, Juliet approves), I enjoyed a little nutritional lesson on how to prevent colds with the help of probiotics. This is something my ears totally perked up to given my family was sick for a whopping 5 weeks last winter. YES, 5! I promise you, we are not normally sickly people. In fact, my husband and I rarely ever got sick before Juliet started school. As any parent knows, you can wash your hands all you want but it’s nearly impossible to avoid germs that a toddler brings home and almost inevitable you’ll get sick at some point. Alas the joys of parenthood! Anyways, after being down that long with the cold, you too would be desperate to try anything.
That’s when I learned about the 3 superheros of micro-bials the defender, the reinforcer and repairer (won’t bore you with their actual scientific names).
Simply put, they powerfully combat bad bacteria while also while increasing good bacteria in the gut and that’s where 80% of the immune system lies. (who knew??) This inspired Juliet to strike her best superhero pose.
Afterwards, together, Juliet and I decorated her first apron. I love childhood. There’s a first for everything! She immediately tried it on and put it to use during the next activity.
This is where we really got hands-on. We love any opportunity to get creative and cute with food. So making butterflies and funny faces out of smoothies and fruits was just delightful!
She couldn’t wait to show daddy her masterpiece!
All the smoothies and chia mixtures were delicious and infused with Bio-Kidz showing fun ways to incorporate them into toddler and kids meals. My personal favorite was the chia mix! And as a mom, I love Bio-Kidz’s portable small, to go containers and can see myself packing her cooler bag with this yummy, nutritious snack.
Bio-Kidz is the only premium, 100% probiotic fermented milk for children on the market. It can be found in the supplement section of most Whole Foods in our NY/NJ area and provides a perfectly portioned, probiotic shot for daily consumption. Would you try this?
Thank you Bio-Kidz for the gifted cooler bag and products to review. All opinions are mines as always.
