SAN FRANCISCO, March 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Brainiac™ Kids, the first kids' food brand specifically targeted to help developing brains, has launched its kids' yogurt line at Good Eggs, the Bay Area-based online grocery delivery service. Each delicious serving of Brainiac™ Kids is enhanced with the BrainPack™, a unique blend of key nutrients that are critical to the healthy development of kids' growing brains, including the omega-3s DHA and ALA as well as choline.
On average, American kids are only getting twenty percent of the recommended amount of omega-3 DHA/EPA and about two-thirds of their daily adequate intake of the essential nutrient choline, according to the USDA NHANES Survey, "What We Eat in America".* Brainiac™ Kids yogurts were created to address this critical nutrient gap in kids' diets and help every child get the brain nutrients they need to reach their full potential. One 4oz. serving of Brainiac™ Kids yogurt provides as much omega-3 DHA as one kid's portion of salmon, plus as much omega-3 ALA as 1 cup of Brussels sprouts, and as much choline as 2 cups of broccoli.
"As a San Francisco-based company, we're thrilled to launch in the Bay Area with Good Eggs," said Jonathan Wolfson, Founder and CEO of Ingenuity™ Brands. "Good Eggs' commitment to providing simple, delicious and convenient foods to families aligns with our mission and commitment to making good, wholesome and nutrient-rich foods for all kids to enable them to be their best selves."
Brainiac™ Kids yogurts also have forty percent less sugar and fifty percent more protein than the leading kids' yogurt. The addition of Brainiac™ Kids to Good Eggs' offerings aligns with the online grocery delivery service's focus on sourcing the best products from producers they know and trust.
"We believe in the positive impact of good food on our families, our community, and our environment while offering what families want and need – right to their door," said Bentley Hall, CEO of Good Eggs. "Our customers are always looking for convenient and nutritious products for their kids, so we're excited to welcome Brainiac™ Kids yogurts to the marketplace."
Brainiac™ Kids supports brain development while also providing simply better nutrition. Omega-3 DHA is an essential building block of brain cells and choline is an essential nutrient that connects and enhances our brain's information "superhighways." There is a growing body of research that supports their essential role in brain development throughout childhood and adolescence as the brain continues to grow and develop memory, emotions, and higher cognitive functions.
Brainiac™ Kids yogurts come in 4oz. cups, 2oz. tubes, 4oz. and 7oz. drinks, and are available in four kid-approved flavors, including Strawberry Banana, Strawberry, Mixed Berry and Cherry Vanilla. Brainiac™ Kids has an SRP of $4.99 for a pack of eight 2oz. tubes, four 4oz. cups and four 4oz. drinks and an SRP of $1.79 for a single 7oz. drink.
