Wouldn’t it be amazing if we all actually craved eating our fruits and vegetables? Especially kids. We try to teach them to eat healthy from a young age, but as most parents know: it’s HARD! We try to sneak veggies into new recipes, we try to make eating “little trees” sound appealing when they don’t want their broccoli. Sure, eventually they’ll learn to enjoy eating veggies… But when? And how can we get them the nutrients their bodies need before then? Daily Sunshine!
Up until now, my daughters have been drinking Shakeology. I always struggled to get them to eat their veggies, but ever since I started my journey with Beachbody, they’ve been drinking Shakeology right alongside me. We’ve used it as a way to help them get the nutrients they need and probiotics, but now we’ve made the switch to Daily Sunshine and they’re finally getting that extra boost of vitamin C and E to keep their immunity up! I feel totally confident that their growing bodies are getting everything they need to stay strong and healthy!
What is Daily Sunshine?
Daily Sunshine is Beachbody’s first nutritional smoothie created just for kids—it’s both pediatrician approved and kid approved! It’s a 3-in-1 smoothie, designed to help kids get exactly what they need in a delicious (struggle-free) way!
What does 3-in-1 mean? It means that it has:
- Fruits and vegetables
- Plant-based protein
- Healthy fats
These are 3 aspects of a healthy diet that most parents of picky eaters have difficulty with. These kid-friendly nutrition shakes also contain 3 grams of fiber, vitamins C & E, calcium, vitamin D, and more!
Daily Sunshine comes in 2 flavors: Chocolate and Strawberry Banana. And preparing it is as simple as mixing 1 scoop of Daily Sunshine with 8oz of water (or other beverage of choice such as almond milk), add it to a shaker bottle, blend and enjoy!
Approved by 4 out of 5 pediatricians, it’s formulated to include the “building blocks of nutrition” that kids need as they grow.
It’s also highly approved by my two girls who are in LOVE with their new smoothies!
Even better than what Daily Sunshine has, is what it doesn’t have.
Nothing artificial. No artificial flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives. Just delicious ingredients that make for a delicious smoothie!
No high-fructose corn syrup. Or any other “hidden” sugars like sorbitol or other names you can’t pronounce. The only sweetener you’ll see is pure and simple cane sugar—just enough to add a touch of sweetness—and less than most other products out there!
No fillers or binders. Daily Sunshine is packed with only the best high-quality ingredients!
It’s also soy-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, and non-GMO.
What’s the Difference Between Daily Sunshine vs Shakeology?
The difference is the levels of key nutrients. While both drinks have overlapping ingredients and nutrients, the levels of each are formulated differently to meet the needs of growing children vs. healthy adults.
To give you an idea of the difference through let’s talk about the Portion Fix containers.
Shakeology = 1 Red (protein)
Daily Sunshine = ½ Red (protein), ½ Purple (fruit), ½ Green (veggies)
While Shakeology is made with superfoods, the nutrients in these ingredients don’t specifically fit into “purple” or “green.” And with 16-17 grams of protein, it makes sense to categorize it as a red container.
Daily Sunshine, on the other hand, has 10 grams of protein for kids and the ingredients used equate to about a half serving each of fruits and vegetables.
Can adults drink Daily Sunshine? And can kids drink Shakeology?
Of course! If it’s healthy for kids, it’s healthy for adults as well. Although Shakeology contains more optimal levels of nutrition for adults, stealing one of your kid’s Daily Sunshine smoothie as a quick breakfast or snack is always OK!
Like I mentioned before, my girls have drank Shakeology for years (approved by their pediatrician, of course). They’ve been healthy and love their shakes, but to me, it made much more sense to switch to a nutrition something tailored toward kids’ needs!
