Tonight on Shark Tank, we discover KidsLuv drinks for children. What makes it special, and where can you buy it? We have the answers!
All the details of this amazing mompreneur and her story behind a safe, healthy, and vitamin-enriched substitute for soda, fruit juice, and pop for kids to drink are below.
KidsLuv is a vitamin-infused beverage made specifically for kids. This is a first of its kind beverage, where juice-infused water packs 12 essential vitamins and minerals with zero sugar.
The serving comes in an 8 oz recyclable Tetra Pak.
The beauty of KidsLuv is the portability of it, the grab-and-go drink is described on Ashi Jelinek’s website as a “non-GMO project verified, vegan, kosher, and gluten-free” healthy drink.
Currently, there are four flavors – coconut, mango, guava, and orange peach – these flavors melding in a blend of water, coconut water, essential vitamins and minerals, and natural flavors.
Each serving has the breakdown for the daily required nutrient needs for a kid: Vitamin D (50%), Calcium (95mg), Potassium (25mg), Vitamin A (80%), Vitamin C (70%), Vitamin E (90%), Riboflavin (15%), Niacin (100%), Vitamin B6 (100%), Folate (50%), Vitamin B12 (100%), and Sodium (95mg).
The drink is sweetened with Stevia and has Sodium Calcium Citrate mixed with organic coconut water and packed with 12 essential vitamins and minerals.
The right mix of electrolytes too — with 25mg of Potassium and 95mg of Calcium in every serving.
The special factor is the mom behind the product
Founded and created by a California mother of two, Ashi Jelinek, this no-sugar juice alternative brings refreshing hydration with essential vitamins to enhance your kids’ daily intake.
Jelinek presents her new idea KidsLuv waters to the Shark Tank sharks on ABC tonight.
This is the first-to-market drink of its kind, juice-infused water with 12 essential vitamins and minerals, and zero harmful sugars.
Ashi’s hope is to provide children with a healthier way to get the essential vitamins in their diet and to stay hydrated while enjoying a tasty beverage.
In an interview with Beyond Mom, Jelinek talked of how she began her company, the Luving Company, in 2017. As a mother, she wanted to find a healthy and marketable children’s product.
In the interview, she was asked about the causes important to her, and she said: “I’m extremely passionate about a variety of children’s issues and causes from, child obesity to diabetes, autism and down syndrome as well as poverty. Some of these have directly impacted my family and I want to find a way to make a difference in these topics and areas.”
Of note, Ashi has a theatre background. She started in New York and then received her undergraduate degree in theater/communications at California Institute of the Arts.
