There are just some days when my two sons don’t get the nutrition they need. When you have picky eaters, there doesn’t always have to be a reason. Even if those picky eaters are now 5 and 10 years old and should be able to tell me why they don’t want to eat. While I have tons of tricks to get protein into them, some are time intensive. I can’t always whip up a smoothie with added protein or fix them a protein-packed snack– I need something I can keep on hand that they can literally drink and get nourishment. That’s where Ella’s Kitchen comes in, which has been handpicked to be part of the Made to Matter line at Target — options that are organic, non-toxic, non-GMO, fair trade & more. Ella’s Kitchen provides healthy solutions.
Ella’s Kitchen offers delicious nutritional shakes that come in two flavors that are ready to serve and isn’t full of bad stuff. As a huge plus, my boys like the taste and I know it’s not full of sugar and corn syrup solids.
When they are having a picky eating day (which unfortunately is often), the first thing I reach for is Ella’s Kitchen Coconut + Milk Nutritional Shake with Broccoli Plums & Pears or the Coconut + Milk Nutritional Shake with Banana Apricot & Raisins. It makes doing homework with your sister helping you even better.
4 come in a package, which retails for $9.99.
It’s suitable for babies over 1 & up.
Another Ella’s Kitchen fave is their Smoothie Drinks with veggies. It contains one serving of fruit and this is what I leave on the table for Skylar to find in the morning. He tends to eat more during the day, so I try to have healthy choices waiting for him so he can start eating while he’s waiting for all of us to get up.
Ella’s Kitchen also offers a refreshing coconut water electrolyte drink made with certified organic fruits + veggies to naturally rehydrate, refresh and help replenish lost nutrients. They use real ingredients with naturally occurring electrolytes* (170mg chloride per serving, 110mg potassium per serving and 120mg of sodium per serving to help rehydrate and replenish lost nutrients and electrolytes) and to help prevent dehydration.
Available in two yummy favors: banana + ginger and pears + berries. This is great for when my kids are sick (and I need to hydrate them). Anyone else have kids who won’t eat or drink a drop when they’re sick? I also add this to their protein shakes instead of milk or regular coconut water with some protein powder and added frozen organic fruit.
Ella’s Kitchen also has awesome Aloe Juice Blends — we love them because they’re organic, less sugar, and not from concentrate. Need an option for class parties? These are perfect. My daughter loved the strawberry lemonade and asked me to get them for her class party coming up next week. I feel good about sending them to school with my kids.
And to my kosher friends — many of the Ella’s Kitchen products are OU Certified Dairy and some are OU Certified Parve. The juice boxes mentioned above are OU Certified Parve (great to bring to hebrew school or temple for thirst quenching).
Thank you to Ella’s Kitchen for sending samples for review.
