IRVINE, Calif. (March 02, 2011) – Battles over broccoli may be a thing of the past with the introduction of a new line of organic nutritional shakes formulated specifically for children. Designed to fill the nutritional gaps left by picky eaters and active kids who don’t always consume enough nutrients, Orgain Healthy Kids contains 10 different organic fruits and vegetables, organic complex carbohydrates, 25 vitamins and minerals, and 8 grams of organic protein. Orgain will introduce its new Healthy Kids line at Natural Products Expo West (Booth #2227), Anaheim, Calif., March 11-13, 2011.
Developed by Dr. Andrew Abraham, Orgain Healthy Kids provides a convenient nutritional boost for children ages 1 to 13. Ideal for lunch boxes, a healthy snack, meals on the run, and as a pick-me-up after sports practice, Orgain Healthy Kids is available in delicious Chocolate and Vanilla flavors.

“As a parent, and as a physician, I appreciate how challenging it can be to ensure that children eat a balanced diet that is rich in antioxidants and high quality protein,” said Dr. Abraham, founder of Orgain. “Providing kids with a boost, particularly during and after sickness, is easier to achieve when you’re giving them something that is not just nutritionally beneficial, but also tastes great.”
For maximum convenience, Orgain Healthy Kids is packaged in an easy-to-tote 8.25 fl oz Tetra Pak carton with a sealed straw, and will reach stores in May, 2011.
Dr. Abraham will also launch a new flavor of original Orgain – Iced Café Mocha – at Expo West. Like Sweet Vanilla Bean and Creamy Chocolate Fudge Orgain, the new flavor is a source of optimal organic nutrition and energy for consumers of all ages. Orgain’s nutritional shakes contain 255 nutrient-dense calories, 16g of organic protein, organic complex carbohydrates, fiber and a synergistic immune and vitamin blend — all in one convenient 11oz serving. Unlike other protein shakes, Orgain is gluten free, and contains no caffeine, preservatives, gluten, corn syrup, saturated fat, hormones or antibiotics.
Orgain’s healthy drinks can be purchased at Whole Foods Market, Wegmans, Vitamin Shoppe, Amazon.com, Super Supplements, Ralphs and over 3,000 natural food retailers across the country. They can also be purchased online at http://www.drinkorgain.com. Consumers can follow Orgain on Facebook.
Founded in 2008 by Andrew Abraham, M.D., Orgain’s vision is to be the healthiest beverage company in the world; to create the highest quality products that revolutionize health and wellness. Dr. Abraham’s personal experience as a cancer survivor and practicing physician inspired him to formulate Orgain: protein shakes that are a wholesome blend of organic protein, organic complex carbohydrates, fiber and a synergistic immune and vitamin blend. Gluten free, organic Orgain is a perfect choice for breakfast, as a post-workout shake, during illness or as a healthy snack between meals. A portion of net proceeds is given to cancer patients who cannot adequately meet their medical and nutritional needs.
