Share Article

Organic tea infusions provide a healthy, tasty and refreshing alternative to sodas and sweet, high calorie drinks kids are use to drinking.

Just Different Specialty Tea Company today announced Captain Teao's ™ organic Tea for Kids is now available at http://www.teaforkids.com in easy to brew tea bags making the process of brewing hot or cold tea effortless for parents and kids alike.

Captain Teao's™ Tea for Kids is a tasty and refreshing drink that provides a healthy beverage option in the fight against childhood obesity, heart disease and type II diabetes. Captain Teao's™ Tea for Kids uses organic rooibos and is available in five delicious kid loving flavors, including: Very Vanilla, Orangie Orange, Lip Licking Lemon, Mango Madness and Peachy Keen Peach.

"Childhood obesity is an enormous problem facing the lives and health of kids everywhere, especially in the United States. We were the first company to acknowledge this situation in 2004 when we created and developed Tea for Kids. At the time, we offered our Tea for Kids in loose leaf form," commented Frank Kenny, Founder of Just Different Specialty Teas. "We realized that in order to effectively get our message across and accomplish our mission of helping fight childhood obesity we had to make the brewing and preparation of our tea easier, that's why we now provide Captain Teao's™ Tea for Kids in tea bags and are excited to announce we will soon be offering Captain Teao's™ Tea for Kids in a boxed, ready to drink package," continued Kenny.

Captain Teao's™ Tea for Kids helps to directly address the 17% of beverage calories consumed by kids, a huge component in the overall calorie consumption that is contributing to the childhood obesity epidemic in the United States. If kids reduce soda consumption (two 12 oz. sodas a day,) that can account for up to 360 calories a day or close to one pound a week.

Captain Teao's™ Tea for Kids contains no calories and no caffeine, another benefit to kids when you take into account all the high calorie, caffeine loaded "energy" drinks kids consume.

"How can you expect kids to be able to function and learn in school when they're jacked up on soda and caffeine all day? These so called "energy" drinks are making it harder and harder for our kids to maintain any type of calm and focus throughout the day," Kenny added. "Parents must be more aware of the sources of the problems causing childhood obesity, restlessness, diabetes and type II diabetes, Captain Teao's™ Tea for Kids helps to address those issues."
