Due to busy lifestyles and poor dietary habits, it is estimated that 85% of kids in the U.S. fail to consume the USDA’s recommended 5-to-9 daily servings of fruits and vegetables. Just about every parent has experienced frustration trying to convince picky children to eat healthy vegetables. Nutrition convenience pioneer Amazing Grass has created an innovative and delicious solution to this problem for children age 2 and up with their new Wild Berry Kidz SuperFood drink powder.
New Wild Berry Kidz SuperFood is a nutritional powerhouse that combines a rainbow of 32 phyto-nutritious™ fruits and veggies with the delicious flavor of Yumberry – a superfruit that is loaded with healthy antioxidants. This convenient drink mix supports healthy bodies and minds with a naturally balanced source of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals derived from whole fruits and vegetables. One serving provides the antioxidant equivalent of 3 servings of fruits and vegetables. Amazing Grass’ original Chocolate version of Kidz SuperFood has been a leading seller for the company for many years, and its success inspired the creation of the Wild Berry variety.
Although new to North America and known by the nickname Yumberry, the yang-mei fruit has been enjoyed by Chinese culture for thousands of years. This superfruit offers a delicious sweet & sour flavor similar to pomegranate and cranberries. Used in China for medicinal purposes since ancient times, Yumberry is rich in antioxidants like proanthocyanidins and contains many vitamins including vitamin C, thiamine, riboflavin, and carotene.
“This innovative superfood drink offers essential ‘whole food’ fruit and vegetable nutrition that you just can’t get from a multi-vitamin,” says Amazing Grass co-founder Todd Habermehl. Wild Berry Kidz SuperFood contains more than 70% organic ingredients and is an excellent source of beta carotene, thiamin (B-1) and Vitamin K and is a good source of Vitamin C, Iron, Riboflavin (B-2) and Folic Acid. “What is not in it is important, too,” adds Habermehl. Kidz SuperFood is vegan and all-natural, which means there are no artificial colors, flavors and fillers. It is also gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and GMO-free and contains only one gram of sugar per serving.
The powder mixes easily with water or juice and is offered in a scoopable 200g canister for a SRP of $24.99, and in a 15-count box of convenient single-serve packets for $21.99. Kidz SuperFood is an affordable way to help achieve the recommended daily servings of fruits and veggies, and it is especially ideal for lunch boxes, an after school snack, practice, and travel. Amazing Grass products are widely available at stores around the country and at www.AmazingGrass.com.

Amazing Grass is a friends-and family-owned company with roots that date back over 60 years of growing and dehydrating green foods. The company produces certified organic wheat grass, barley grass, oat grass, rye grass and alfalfa at a family farm in Kansas, and markets the most nutritious, convenient and affordable green SuperFoods to help families thrive. Amazing Grass stands out because the grasses are field-grown throughout the winter allowing the roots to soak up nutrients from mineral-rich soil for over 6 months. “The young leaves are harvested just one time each year at their nutritional peak,” says co-founder Brandon Bert. "The greens are carefully flash dehydrated at low temperatures, frozen as whole leaf powders and then packed in nitrogen to maintain freshness. The extra steps ensure customers get the most nutrient-dense raw green food powders in the world," adds Bert. For more information, please visit www.amazinggrass.com.
