Ok, I admit... I am "that" mom. You know. The one who doesn't have soda and juice in the house. That's not to say that my kids have never had them, but it's not something I buy. So unless they are at an event where it's being served, they aren't having it. Needless to say, my kids were VERY excited to try Creative Roots and I was more than happy to indulge them, as this amazing product HAS ONE GRAM of sugar!* Yep! One gram! 

So what is Creative Roots? 

A plant-powered beverage flavored with fruit, in flavors kids will love, and hydration they need — perfect for kids, and parents too! With all-natural ingredients, Creative Roots is a better-for-you beverage.

According to a study published in the American Journal of Public Health,** 1 in 2 kids is underhydrated. Creative Roots comes in four kid-approved flavors — all with 1 gram of sugar:

  • Watermelon Lemonade
  • Peach Mango
  • Orange Pineapple
  • Mixed Berry

My son's absolute favorite is Peach Mango, while my daughter's fave is Watermelon Lemonade, but honestly? They both love all four flavors, and so do I! 

Creative Roots is available in grocery stores in the kids' juice aisle (I found them at Walmart and Target) and you can feel good about having it in the fridge for them while helping hydration.

Help keep the kids happy, healthy, hydrated, and good to go — pick up some Creative Roots today

Once you have some, check the side of your Creative Roots bottle and meet the Sploots -- the fruit-inspired characters encouraging overall health and wellness and reminding kids of the importance of hydration.
