A healthy kids smoothie: KidActiv Product Information

What age can kids have protein shakes?

We generally recommend kids between 5 and 15 can take KidActiv, however it's also great for teenagers older than this. Unlike protein shakes which are designed for people over 15, KidActiv can be enjoyed by much younger children.

What are some key elements of KidActiv?

KidActiv has several differences compared to popular chocolate beverages many parents may buy for kids when at the supermarket. The biggest is... KidActiv is a great source of carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Add to that a broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals to support growing bodies, all while containing less than 3 grams of sugar per serve (that's less than a teaspoon!).

With 14.6 grams of protein per serve, KidActiv helps boost the protein intake of kids - something particularly important when they are active. Just like their parents, kids growing bodies need to recover from those active days. Proving a good source of calcium, KidActiv is also great for healthy bones, skin and hair.

The use of low GI ingredients like oats, whey and casein protein provide sustained energy which helps to fuel kids’ bodies and brains for longer.

How much sugar is in Chocolate Milk compared to KidActiv?

The largest difference between KidActiv and most kids’ beverages is the sugar. Or in KidActiv's case... the far lower amount of sugar.

At Bulk Nutrients we have spent the better part of a decade perfecting delicious products without the use of sugar, and we got it right with KidActiv, making sure it's delicious enough to satisfy a kid's palate, but still nutritious.

Using a blend of stevia and monk fruit, the flavouring and sweetener combination remains 100% natural, yet gets two big thumbs up from kids. At less than 3 grams of sugar per serve, KidActiv has up to five times less sugar than some popular chocolate-based drinks typically angled towards children, and it's just as tasty.

What flavours is KidActiv available in?

KidActiv is available in two delicious flavours, Choccy Milk and Vanilla Sundae. And yes, these taste as good as they sound!

When should kids use KidActiv?

KidActiv can be used any time of the day. It's great in the morning as part of a healthy breakfast, as it's quick and easy to prepare before heading off to school. It's also great taken directly after school for an afternoon “pick me up” or after sport to maximise nutrition after exercise. On the weekends KidActiv is great in addition to a healthy meal when kids have played sport, or their activity levels are high.

Is KidActiv gluten free?

No, while KidActiv primarily uses ingredients which don’t contain gluten, we do not test this product for gluten levels. Due to this, KidActiv is a low gluten product but cannot be recommended for coeliacs.
