WelleCo recently launched their completely delicious snack and supplement, a kids version of The Super Elixir Nourishing Protein.
Free from dairy, eggs, wheat and soy, this organic powder is full of natural goodness, comprising plant protein, brown rice and real chocolate. Undeniably, the amazing nutritional benefits are key; but equally important as a parent is the fact this buy tastes incredible too. I have actually been pinching powder from the kids and adding it into smoothies of my own. Priced at £26 for a 500g tin, you can scoop the powder into milk for a yummy milkshake-style drink.
In January our doctor told L to avoid dairy, so the discovery of Super Kids has been brilliant. Already aware of the effect diet can have on the kids’ moods and wellbeing, I am trying hard to instill positive eating habits. This new powder find has seriously ramped up excitement levels associated with the almond milk L currently drinks. I’ve also taken to sprinkling the chocolate-y goodness onto breakfast oats, and even stirring into ice cream. Honestly, it just tastes so heavenly and the ingredients leave a satisfied full tummy. Complete with raw Peruvian cacao, the powder contains probiotics, fibre, iron, magnesium, zinc and omega 3. Sugar-free to boot, you can give them a sweet treat minus the energy crash later.
Created with expert nutritionist insight, the WelleCo Super Kids range joins other incredible products such as their original Alkalising Green Super Elixir supplement. WelleCo is a brand formulated by Elle Macpherson, following her discovery of body acidity and alkalinity. Elle works alongside her own nutritional doctor, Dr Simone Laubscher, developing products which enable us to remove toxins and nourish the body. As a mother who focuses on family wellbeing, it clearly seemed a natural next step for Elle and co-founder Andrea Bux to launch kid-friendly products.
Dr Simone Laubscher PhD explains; “when I developed the Kids Nourishing Protein I wanted to create a whole supplement with everything a kid would need. The fact that it is a good clean protein smoothie is a bonus’’.
Another favourite WelleCo product of mine is their Fortified Calming Tea, assisting with a peaceful evening wind-down. I have been on a health and nutrition journey for a while now, recognising the link between food and feeling well, ditching gluten and dairy. I’ve now taken this further and am restricting refined sugar too. The organic sugar-free Nourishing Protein for adults is available in both vanilla and chocolate varieties and I am completely addicted. Whether rushing out the door and in need of some energy or beating a craving, it fits perfectly into my life.
I’m off to nick a little bit more of the Super Kids powder, before they get back from school.
