Vita Coco Kids Review

This is the kind of review that my kids love! Yummy, healthy things to eat or drink. We've been sent some Vita Coco Kids fruit flavoured coconut water to try. I'll be honest, it's not something I've even heard of before, but as we seem to get through a LOT of cartons and bottles of kids drinks - with packed lunches, day trips and picnics - a new variation to our usual purchases is always welcome.

What is Coconut Water?

I had to look this one up. Coconut water is NOT coconut milk or oil which are high in calories, it is the clear liquid at the very centre of the coconut and is tapped from the young, green coconuts. What's more,  it is:

"Naturally refreshing, coconut water has a sweet, nutty taste. It contains easily digested carbohydrate in the form of sugar and electrolytes .... It has fewer calories, less sodium, and more potassium than a sports drink. Ounce per ounce, most unflavored coconut water contains 5.45 calories, 1.3 grams sugar, 61 milligrams (mg) of potassium, and 5.45 mg of sodium compared to Gatorade, which has 6.25 calories, 1.75 grams of sugar, 3.75 mg of potassium, and 13.75 mg of sodium."

That sounds pretty good to me!

These Vita Coco Kids cartons are targeted at kids, and they are flavoured (with natural flavours). But they are still a healthier option, with fewer calories and less sugar then the leading children's drinks brands. If you visit their website you can see some comparisons: VitaCocoKids.com


Do the kids like them?

This is the big question, right? It's all very well buying these attractive, healthy options. But if the kids wont drink them.... 

Well, this is what my boys had to say!





And since we got sent 4 cartons and I only have 3 kids right now, I got to have one too! And they ARE nice! I was a little concerned that the coconut flavour would be dominant over the fruit - I'm not the worlds biggest coconut fan - but it really isn't. It gives the drink a lovely soft flavour which, like Jack said in the video, is a bit like drinking a smoothy. 

Where do I get them from & how much are they?

Tesco currently have 4 packs of Vita Coco Kids for sale at £2.99, or two 4 packs for £5 (June 2014)

You can also buy Vita Cocio kids at: Waitrose, Sainsburys, Ocaco, Amazon, Holland & Barrett, Whole Foods, Planet Organic, speciality and health stores and other independents.

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
