This years’ Coach summit in New Orleans was a whirlwind of fun. emotion, training, and of course exciting product announcements. The Shift Shop launched publicly, you can read about my results and the experience I had in the Test Group here. We also learned about a new Tony Horton program that is coming out in November that is designed for you to do with a partner, and we were surprised by the launch of a brand new healthy snack that’s made for picky kids and pickier parents: DAILY SUNSHINE! I do not have kids yet but I always get questions from people about Shakeology for their kids because we all know that it is tough to get kids to eat their vegetables and to ensure that they are getting the nutrients they need to THRIVE. To help parents be able to give their children something that tastes great and is made of the highest quality ingredients available Beachbody developed Daily Sunshine.
What is Daily Sunshine?
According to Beachbody, “Daily Sunshine is a brand-new healthy smoothie that is a delicious snack for kids. It comes in two kid-friendly flavors: creamy Chocolate and fruity and sweet Strawberry Banana. Each is made with organic fruits and vegetables, organic pea protein, and healthy fats, and has 3 grams of fiber, probiotics from Bacillus coagulans, vitamins C & E, calcium, and vitamin D. Here is Daily Sunshine’s Strawberry Banana Nutrition Facts label and Daily Sunshine’s Chocolate Nutrition Facts label so you can check it out!
In short, Daily Sunshine has carefully been formulated to include the building blocks of nutrition kids need to help them grow up healthy and strong, and 4 out of 5 pediatricians approve its formula. The ingredients in Daily Sunshine differ slightly depending on which flavor you choose. But both the Chocolate and Strawberry Banana flavors have a fruit and veggie blend of apple, sweet potato, flaxseed, spinach, blueberry, acerola cherry, and strawberry. Beachbody was just as careful about what they didn’t put in Daily Sunshine as what we did put in there. That’s why Daily Sunshine is soy-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, and non-GMO, and it contains NO artificial flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives.”
How do I make Daily Sunshine and when should my kids drink it?
Daily Sunshine is extremely easy to make. All you have to do is mix one serving with 8 ounces of water and and shake it up. Super easy, super convenient, gluten-free, dairy-free, healthy AND delicious. you may be wondering when the best time to give your kids this delicious snack, well the best answer is: ANY TIME! Breakfast, after school, on the way to or from practice, or when you are shuttling them between their activities. It is quick, easy, and healthy.
Daily Sunshine Vs. Shakeology
Daily Sunshine is formulated specifically to provide nutrients in a simple and healthy way to young, growing bodies. Shakeology focuses on providing an array of exotic superfoods, adaptogens, prebiotics, probiotics, digestive enzymes, and a ton of other dense nutrients for adult bodies. You have no doubt heard me go on and on about all of the goodness in Shakeology and how it literally changed my health and fitness focus and got me passionate about wellness. Daily Sunshine and Shakeology contain some of the same ingredients but they are in different levels because Shakeology is formulated for Adults and Daily Sunshine is formulated specifically for kids. Here is the good news for you adults who are reading this (I doubt there are any kids checking this out), you can drink Shakeology and Daily Sunshine in the same day. If you love your daily Shakeology then you can make yourself a glass of Sunshine for an afternoon munchie killer or after dinner sweet treat!
There is even more good news!
As with Shakeology there is a 30 day bottom of the bag guarantee for Daily Sunshine. This means that you can feed your kids a daily healthy snack and if you, or them, are not 100% satisfied you can return it for a full refund. That is pretty awesome but from what I have seen with the taste tests I do not think you will need to take advantage of this!
