When it’s nice outside that is where my daughter wants to be. She rather be outside swimming than inside the house on a beautiful day. Peyton would rather live in a tent all summer camping too. This summer I took her up to Glendalough State Park where we spent a few nights camping. We had beautiful weather! High 70s the whole time. Because the weather was incredible we found ourselves taking hikes around the various lakes, swimming in the lakes and doing a little geo-cashing. With all that activity it’s important to stay hydrated. Kids don’t always like to drink water and sometimes water is not enough. Our bodies need electrolytes and nutrients to replenish what we use. BodyArmor Sports Drink is made with coconut water and natural sweeteners plus vitamins to help keep us hydrated. BodyArmor comes in 8 flavors, fruit punch, orange mango, tropical punch, strawberry banana, grape, lemon-lime, mixed berry and blackout berry. Peyton’s favorite is orange mango. Each 16-ounce bottle is full of vitamin A, E, C, B8, B12, niacin, folic acid, magnesium, zinc and pantothenic acid. All these vitamins and nutrients help to hydrate your child.I also like that there are no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners. BodyArmor only uses natural flavors and sweeteners. After reading the label of other sports drinks I was shocked to find out how much sugar is in them. Did you know there is a certain brand that has over 30 grams of sugar in a little 6-ounce bottle?? BodyArmor only has 18 grams of sugar for 8 ounces. That’s a big difference.
For our camping weekend, I kept these on ice so whenever Peyton needed a drink she had a cold BodyArmor to choose from. I even let her have them for breakfast. Because it’s made with coconut water and has vitamins I feel it’s a better option than a juice box that is full of sugar. I thought the orange mango was a good choice for a breakfast drink!When we are not camping, Peyton is busy participating in sports and after school activities. I can send a BodyArmor with her and be confident that she will be getting the electrolytes her body needs to help replace what her body is using up when running around.
