Have you heard about the new, healthy snack that’s made for picky kids and pickier parents? It’s called Daily Sunshine, and we think you’re going to love it. This brand-new healthy smoothie is a delicious snack for kids that comes in two kid-friendly flavors. Plus, it’s made with organic fruits and vegetables.* But, if you’re a picky parent, we know you’ve got questions. And we’re here with answers!
What is Daily Sunshine?
Daily Sunshine is a healthy 3-in-1 smoothie for kids that’s been designed specifically for their unique dietary needs. We know how hard it is to get kids to eat right, so our goal was to not only create a healthy snack you feel good about them having but also make an easy snack that they’d actually ask for!
The Daily Sunshine smoothie comes in two flavors: smooth and creamy Chocolate and fruity and sweet Strawberry Banana. Each is made with organic fruits and vegetables,* organic pea protein, and healthy fats, and has 3 grams of fiber, probiotics from Bacillus coagulans, vitamins C & E, calcium, and vitamin D. Here is Daily Sunshine’s Strawberry Banana Nutrition Facts label and Daily Sunshine’s Chocolate Nutrition Facts label so you can check it out!
In short, Daily Sunshine has carefully been formulated to include the building blocks of nutrition kids need to help them grow up healthy and strong, and 4 out of 5 pediatricians approve its formula.
The ingredients in Daily Sunshine differ slightly depending on which flavor you choose. But both the Chocolate and Strawberry Banana flavors have a fruit and veggie blend of apple, sweet potato, flaxseed, spinach, blueberry, acerola cherry, and strawberry.
We were just as careful about what we didn’t put in Daily Sunshine as what we did put in there. That’s why Daily Sunshine is soy-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, and non-GMO, and it contains NO artificial flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives.
How do I make Daily Sunshine?
If you’re a busy parent you’ll love that Daily Sunshine smoothies are quick to prepare. Simply mix one serving with 8 fl. oz. water, shake it up, and you’ve got a healthy, gluten-free, dairy-free snack.
Will my kids like Daily Sunshine?
Sources say yes! Daily Sunshine has been rigorously taste-tested by the toughest critics… kids! We know how hard it is to help your kids eat healthy, which is why we worked hard to make Daily Sunshine a healthy smoothie that has a taste that’s kid-approved! They can enjoy it in the mornings on the way to school, as part of their lunch, as an after-school snack, or even between soccer practice and music lessons.
Daily Sunshine vs Shakeology. What’s the difference?
Daily Sunshine provides key nutrients in a simple yet healthy formula designed for young, growing bodies. Shakeology focuses on providing an array of exotic superfoods, adaptogens, prebiotics, digestive enzymes, and other important nutrients for adult bodies. While they both have unique ingredients, Daily Sunshine and Shakeology contain some overlapping essential ingredients, but at different levels, in order to suit the nutritional needs of kids and adults.
Can I drink both Daily Sunshine and Shakeology?
Absolutely! If adults like to enjoy Shakeology as a part of a healthy breakfast or as a mid-morning snack, it’s OK to treat themselves to Daily Sunshine as a healthy afternoon snack or late-night munchie killer.
Is it OK to mix Daily Sunshine with Shakeology?
We don’t recommend mixing Daily Sunshine and Shakeology into one shake. The reason is because these products were designed to be prepared individually and are not intended to be mixed with other Beachbody Nutritional products, including our Beachbody Performance line.
Why does Shakeology count as 1 red container while Daily Sunshine counts as ½ green, ½ purple, and ½ red?
Shakeology contains between 16 to 17 grams of protein and between 140 to 170 calories per serving depending on the flavor. This makes it perfect for one red container. It also contains a vast array of other nutrients, but given how wide-ranging and exotic they are, they don’t fit as neatly into a specific container. Daily Sunshine, on the other hand, contains less protein (10 grams), so ½ red makes sense. It also contains the equivalent of a full serving of fruits and vegetables.* Because this is done using a combination of both types of produce, the most accurate representation is ½ purple and ½ green.
How can I buy Daily Sunshine?
We’ve got you covered as far as sizes go. There’s a 30-day supply bag, a box of 24 single-serve packets—single flavor as well as 12 of each flavor, and a 4-serving Sampler Pack (2 of each flavor).
*Concentrated powder equivalent to 1 full serving of fruits and vegetables, ⅝ serving of fruit ((Chocolate – 4.45 g dried apple, strawberry, and blueberry powders) (Strawberry Banana – 4.5 g dried apple, strawberry, banana, and blueberry powders)) and ⅜ serving of veggies (1.95 g dried sweet potato and spinach powders) per smoothie. Each 28 g serving (1 scoop) provides the equivalent of ½ cup fruits and vegetables (volume before drying).
