Cocobella Kids: Review & Giveaway

Cocobella Kids feature
Elliott has always been a water and milk boy, actually, I have admitted that he is in fact a milkoholic. I think in his entire life I’ve given him about two juice drinks on special occasions because I just cringe at the sugar content of those popper type drinks. But I’ve found an alternative for when Elliott asks for something different and surprisingly, fussy eater Elliott actually likes it, it’s Cocobella Kids Coconut Water & Juice!

Cocobella Kids Elliott
You may have heard of the makers of Australia’s leading coconut water brand, Cocobella? Well they’ve now introduced a Cocobella Kids range, Australia’s first range of coconut water drinks for kids. It is 70% coconut water and 30% juice and nothing else, coconut water is naturally rich in minerals (especially potassium) making it a great natural source of hydration and fuel for normal growth and development in kids. This is something I’m much happier to give Elliott in his lunchbox or as a quick refresher.

Did you know that coconut water naturally contains half the sugar of apple juice? Cocobella kids naturally contains around 50% less sugar than leading kids fruit juices and contains no added sugar, no added colours or flavours and no additives or preservatives. Here’s a brand comparision table that Cocobella put together…look at the difference in sugar content! Wow!

I have also discovered that Cocobella Kids is brilliant in smoothies! With Elliott being the milkaholic that he is and also being a lover of smoothies, I thought I’d try replacing the milk in his smoothies with the Cocobella Kids coconut water & juice. The end result was a winner. Elliott loved it and so did I. Here are the ingredients that I combined in the blender.

    My kids love picking at food, so I give them little bits of finger food, cheese, carrot, cherry tomatoes, crackers etc.

    My miss 6 is a fussy one so I pack small portions of a variety of things into cute little containers in her lunchbox…a lot more gets eaten this way…oh and I get sick of cutting crusts off her sandwiches so I now use sandwich cutters…she loves the cute sandwiches and to me it’s like cheating with the crust cutting…win win!!

    I keep it Interesting by incorporating my sons current interest. He is obsessed with minecraft so I jazzed up a boring Vegemite sandwich by cutting a face into it so it looks like a creeper

    My child could essentially live on peanut butter toast. She is only 2 but it’s her pick most days.

    I keep my kids lunch boxes interesting my baking things in bulk and freezing them. So I will make different varieties muffins & pinwheels so that my kids can have a different ‘treat’ each day, so they don’t have to sit through a whole week of banana muffins, they can have banana, strawberry, chocolate, blueberry & honey oat all in one week!

    I swear by our Tuppaware sandwich keeper lunchbox! My boys love to pick and choose something to eat from the little compartments. I keep it interesting by including a variety of foods such as strawberries, pears, pretzels, sultanas, grape, wholeweat biscuits and of course their favourite – vegemite and cheese sandwiches!

    Keep it interesting by making food into shapes they will love! It can be as simple as fruits with a smile or you could make sandwiches made into a face! It keeps them happy each and every day with new creations and means you can ensure they will also eat real healthy food.

    I like to cut, roll and create!
    I cut things up into small pieces or shapes
    I roll things up to make it easier for little fingers to hold
    And I place the bits and pieces into a sectioned lunchbox creatively.

    Have a different main ingredient to keep things interesting: sandwich one day, then a wrap, maybe a pizza made out of a toasting muffin, (perfectly fine cold), Pita Pockets and pasta salad. All different, and guaranteed to keep a little one interested, and you can have all sorts of healthy, yummy toppings. Apple slices cut into shapes means they can have all sorts of fun while eating, and frozen grapes help keep lunch cold, and taste great.

    Small tubs of fruit salad, crackers and cheese
