DENVER, Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Determined to take veggies from "YUCK" to "YUM," Sneakz Organic, today announced the national launch of its tasty, new children's beverage that delivers one full serving of vegetables in an 8oz. USDA Organic shake. With 75 percent of children in the U.S. not eating their daily recommended servings of vegetables*, Sneakz combines great taste with positive nutrition, using a simple blend of organic whole foods, including milk and vegetables like sweet potatoes, carrots, and broccoli to deliciously disguise vegetable nutrition in a yummy chocolate shake.
"Moms recognize the important role nutrition plays in helping children develop and lead healthy lives, but often struggle to get their kids to eat vegetables," said co-founder and CEO Charlie Philp. "We wanted to offer an easy and fun solution for parents to feed their little ones their daily veggies."
Every shake of yummy goodness provides 2 grams of fiber from veggies, 8 grams of protein, and vitamins from whole food sources—including 50% daily value of vitamin A, 20% daily value of vitamin C, and 30% daily value of calcium. Made with simple, clean USDA Organic ingredients, Sneakz contains no GMOs, antibiotics or synthetic hormones, and no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners. It also satisfies special dietary needs by not containing any gluten ingredients.
"Sneakz effectively delivers vegetables and key nutrients that young children need at their age, along with more fiber and less sugar than other leading flavored milks in the marketplace," shared nutrition and natural health expert, Keegan Sheridan. "As a mom of two, I know first-hand the challenge many parents face in getting their little ones to eat their veggies, and Sneakz's great taste provides a win-win for everyone."
Sneakz is currently available in one creamy flavor, Chocolate, in an 8oz. single serve, eco-friendly Tetra-Pak container, delivering on-the-go convenience. The shake is an ideal option for lunchboxes, backpacks, backseats, and play dates.
Sneakz is sold for $1.99 at natural stores and major retailers, including Babies "R" Us, Sprouts, select Whole Foods Market stores, Wegmans, and Hy-Vee, as well as online at Amazon.com.
