Good2grow Puts a New Face on Nutrition Nationwide
By Grocery Headquarters Staff
Good2grow, a line of nutritious children’s beverages featuring popular character SippaTop bottle toppers, is making its national debut. The introduction of good2grow marks a milestone in the healthy children’s beverage category by offering fruit and fruit & veggie juices that are both fun for kids and nutritious. Available in a variety of flavors and age-appropriate sizes, company officials say good2grow delivers the ultimate drink trifecta: a great tasting “better-for-you” juice, ultimate spill-proof SippaTop caps and character toys that kids love. “Our founding mission is to help improve the health and happiness of kids by making nutrition fun, as well as accessible and affordable for parents,” says Jim Scott, founder and CEO. “We are striving to create a strong foundation for smart eating habits by shaping children’s attitudes towards healthy foods and beverages. By offering a beverage parents want their children to drink in a package kids want to drink from, we’re setting them on the right path to better nutrition early on in life.” The fruit and veggie blend varieties each contain one combined serving of fruits and vegetables, delivering 100% of the daily requirement of Vitamin C. Two new products, the tropical fruit medley and strawberry kiwi veggie blend have up to 28% less sugar than 100% juice products, say officials. In addition to the fruit & veggie blends, good2grow also offers apple juice, organic apple juice and fruit punch, all made with 100% juice. The company provides age-appropriate nutrition based on guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics (4 ounces for ages 1-3, 6 ounces for ages 3-5 and 8 ounces for ages 5-10). All products contain no added sugar, high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives and are also non-GMO and BPA-free in fun, colorful, recyclable packaging. The 4-ounce and 6-ounce bottles are fitted with patented spill-proof character SippaTop caps that are perfect for car rides, lunch boxes, soccer games and other on-the-go occasions for busy families, say company officials. All good2grow character tops are collectible, reusable, dishwasher safe, recyclable and BPA-free, and feature kids' favorites in entertainment, including Disney, Marvel, Warner Brothers, Mattel, Sanrio/Hello Kitty, American Greetings, Nickelodeon and HIT Entertainment. good2grow is available in organic apple juice (4-ounce), apple juice (4- and 6-ounce), strawberry kiwi (6-ounce), tropical fruit medley (6-ounce) and fruit punch (8-ounce), and can be found at major grocery retailers and convenient stores nationwide with a suggested retail price of $2.49-2.99 for individual bottles and $2.99-3.49 for refill packs.
