Nestle launches Boost nutritional drinks for kids

MINNETONKA, Minn. Nestle announced Thursday its launch of Kid Essentials Nutritionally Complete Drink, a nutrition drink for children ages 1 through 13 which contains probiotics and 25 essential vitamins and minerals.

Each serving of Boost Kid Essentials also contains seven grams of protein, antioxidants and 244 calories. The drinks come in three flavors: chocolate, strawberry and vanilla.

“We are offering parents, for the first time, one complete drink for children that helps supports a healthy immune system and fills in the nutritional gaps they may be worried about,” Barbara McCartney, VP of retail marketing at Nestle HealthCare Nutrition said in a statement. “The patented straw, which contains probiotics, is a kid-friendly way parents can bolster their children’s natural defenses and help support their healthy growth and development.”

Boost Kid Essentials Drinks are also lactose- and gluten-free and do not contain high-fructose corn syrup. The drinks are available at retail stores across the United States.
