This summer we are doing lots of traveling as well as moving into a new house. During all of this my kids are spending lots of time at the pool and playing outside. Like most kids they will gravitate towards whatever food I have in the kitchen. In order to keep my kids happy & healthy this summer I am keeping stocked up on Lifeway Kefir Probiotics.
One of the things I have worried about since my kids were born was getting enough calcium and the milk they drink. Through a lot of research I can to the conclusion years ago that I did not want my kids drinking just any brand of milk. Many brands get milk from cows that are artificially treated with chemicals and I do not want my kids ingesting that. A few years ago I discovered that the Lifeway company only uses milk that comes from cows that are not treated with pesticides, antibiotics, or synthetic growth hormones. Additionally, their cows are grass fed and GMO free. That makes this mama happy.
During the summer my kids LOVE smoothies on a hot day. (In Florida every day is a hot day lol) So I keep my fridge stocked with Lifeway Kefir Probiotics Smoothies in Strawberry & Strawberry Banana.
These are my kids absolute favorite flavors. They have used it on cereal and made traditional smoothies with ice. They also love to make frozen pops with it as well. There are other varieties of Lifeway Smoothies like: Plain, Strawberry, Pomegranate, Raspberry, Peach, Cherry, Madagascar Vanilla, Mango, Cappuccino, Chocolate Truffle, and Honey Fig. Lifeway also just introdcued 2 new flavors recently and they are Coconut Chia & Birthday Cake, which is to celebrate their 25th Anniversary. The Winn Dixie I shop at has Raspberry, Strawberry, Blueberry, Strawberry Banana, and Plain, as shown below. They are located in the same section as milk. I am however, continuing the hunt for the Coconut Chia since I LOVE coconut and the Birthday Cake. (Who doesn’t love birthday cake??) You can also grab up to 6 coupons right now and print new ones each month from Lifeway.
As if the flavors and healthy cows that Lifeway Keifer Smoothies are made with aren’t enough to make you want to try them, they are also full of other, or better yet not full of, other great things. That are naturally Gluten Free, 99% Lactose Free and contain No Artificial Sweeteners and is rich in Calcium. One of my kids is very sensitive to lactose, although she has never been diagnosed as lactose intolerant. She loves to drink the smoothies and never has any tummy issues. Another one of my children has suffered from digestive problems since he was a baby. If your kids have digestive issues then you know how unhappy and grumpy they can be. Since this has been an issues we have dealt with for a long time, getting him to eat without the fear of stomach pain has been a struggle. Although he had been prescribed medication to help with the pain and discomfort through out the years non have really been helpful long term. What we found to be the most helpful is a balanced diet and probiotics. Lifeway Kefir Smoothies contains 12 live and active Probiotic cultures that support the immune system and balance digestive health. We have tried other products with probiotics in them but none that we tried were from cows not artificially treated or were close to lactose free. I can honestly say that since I started buying the Lifeway Kefir Smoothies my kids have been healthier and happier. As a mom, I couldn’t ask for more.
