Introducing a whole new way to get kids to eat their greens (not to mention their oranges, purples and reds!). As makers of greens+, the most award-winning supplement in North America, we’re proud to offer greens+ kids. Tasty, Fun and Purple! You can tell your kids it's healthy after they grow up.
This unique formula, designed by Sam Graci, the original developer behind greens+, was formulated with one goal in mind: increasing children’s intake of valuable vitamins, minerals and plant nutrients through a supplemental source containing antioxidant- and nutrient-rich fruits, veggies and other natural ingredients. Parents are only too familiar with how difficult it is to get children to eat properly - with the equivalent of 1.5 kg of fruit and vegetables in every bottle, greens+ kids provides a healthy solution that kids will love!
Despite strong educational programs and the desires of parents, it is obvious that children are not eating enough fruits and vegetables. While there are a number of supplements for children, greens+ kids is the only one combining a unique blend of fruits, vegetables, plant nutrients, non-dairy bacterial cultures for immune and gastrointestinal health, and brain-boosting phosphatidyl choline.
The same basic principle that led Sam Graci to formulate greens+ is evident in this product designed specially for kids – a more colourful diet is a healthier diet. The nutrients found in a diet containing a variety of fruits and vegetables are essential for childhood growth and development as well as future disease prevention.
greens+ kids is an excellent source of healthy phytonutrients (plant nutrients). These phytonutrients act as antioxidants and have other health benefits due to their high levels of a specific group of compounds called polyphenols. Polyphenols occur in many fruits and vegetables, giving plants their brilliant colours ranging from pink through scarlet, purple and blue.
Polyphenols include flavonoids, anthocyanins, anthocyanidins and many other beneficial compounds. These are important plant nutrients known for their great antioxidant activity, directly measurable by a standardized and widely recognized scientific method called the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC). greens+ kids has an ORAC score equivalent to 3 servings of fruit and vegetables, indicating that it supplies a significant portion of their daily antioxidant supply.
Science has shown that plant based antioxidant vitamins and phytonutrients act in synergy to prevent oxidation – this complementary effect is demonstrated by research showing that the antioxidant potential of a combination formula is greater than the sum of just two single antioxidants taken together. This is why greens+ kids includes a wide variety of fruits and vegetables to ensure a synergistic and healthful effect.
Just one serving of greens+ kids supplies plenty of these important polyphenols; on poor diet days (we all have them) give your children greens+ kids again at dinner for added protection.
Here are some key tips for healthier children:
* Include a variety of foods.
* Plant-based foods such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables should make up the foundation of the diet.
* Keep saturated fat and sugar low – limit intake of high calorie snacks such as potato chips, chocolate bars, ice cream, candy and pop.
* 20 – 30% of the diet should be from healthy fats such as those found in fish or fish oils, flax and nuts.
* Involve your kids in cooking – make food fun and interesting.
* Encourage them to try new foods and let them see you doing the same.
* Create a positive and fun mealtime environment.
