Parents have a lot of things to think about when it comes to the health of their children, and we want to make it easier for parents to ensure their children are getting the nutrients they need to grow and develop.
Whitehall, PA (PRWEB) January 19, 2012
Protica has released a new product intended to help parents provide necessary nutrition for their children. Pediagro® is a product that is intended to be consumed on a daily basis to ensure that children obtain the necessary nutrition required to aid in their growth and development.
Pediagro’s formulation consists of a combination of protein, fruit, fiber, and vitamins in proportions that are appropriate for children age two and up. “Raising healthy, happy children is the most important and challenging job in the world. Parents have a lot of things to think about when it comes to the health of their children, and we want to make it easier for parents to ensure their children are getting the nutrients they need to grow and develop,” remarked Jim Duffy, president and founder of Protica.
Each Pediagro serving contains 15 grams of protein, one serving of fruit, five grams of fiber, 27 vitamins and minerals, and zero grams of fat. Protica developed six fruit flavors intended to appeal to the taste buds of young children. These flavors include green apple, purple grape, and orange tangerine. Duffy hopes that children will like the taste, and he believes parents will appreciate the value in Pediagro's compact, three-ounce, ready-to-drink package. He also hopes parents will feel good about providing a good tasting healthy snack to their children. “I have two young children and trying to get them to take a multivitamin everyday can be a challenge. But a good tasting, sweet, fruity drink that they enjoy drinking, which also contains vitamins and tons of good nutrition, makes it a lot easier to convince your kids to take it!” Duffy commented.
According to CDC.gov, children need at least 34 grams of protein everyday for healthy growth and development. Protica formulated Pediagro to contain 30% of the recommended daily allowance of protein with the CDC’s recommendation in mind. Protica has designed products to help consumers obtain necessary nutrition as part of a healthy, whole foods diet. Protica hopes that parents and children find Pediagro to be a convenient, good tasting way to aid healthy eating efforts.
