kid-friendly sports drink {BODYARMOR}

This post about a natural sports drink for kids is sponsored by BODYARMOR.

With school back in full swing, we also have kids back in fall sports.  Keeping them hydrated is always a top priority and I’m constantly looking for “kid-friendly” (and by that I mean human-friendly) sports drink options.  I’ve been sticking with coconut water, full of naturally-occurring electrolytes, but for that extra boost I’m fawning over BODYARMOR.

We’re an active family who lives in the desert, so hydration is a constant factor.  Finally, it is starting to feel like fall here – no more 110 degrees!  Our fall is 70-85 degrees so we are outside every single day, adventuring, exercising and enjoying the perfect weather.  My daughter is very into tennis, which is a tough sport to play in the summer here.  Now that it is fall, she wants to practice everyday, all day.  Know what’s in her bag?  BODYARMOR.

BODYARMOR contains more electrolytes than the leading sports drink, coconut water, and vitamins with NO artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners. It is also low in sodium and high in potassium — all-in-all, the perfect sports drink for all of us, especially growing kids.

Top athletes are backing the brand, like Andrew Luck, Richard Sherman, Mike Trout and James Harden… not to mention Kobe Bryant, who is a major investor.  If there is anyone who knows the importance of refueling sports drinks, it’s these athletes at the top of their game!

BODYARMOR tastes delicious, and that is probably the most important part.  Good luck getting kids to drink or eat things that they don’t find delicious!  Flavors include: Grape, Orange Mango, Fruit Punch, Strawberry Banana, Mixed Berry and Tropical Punch.  Find these products online at and in local stores — find your local retailers here.

    Great article on nutrition and athletes Sarah!

    I’ve been trying to get back into running and being more active recently and was approached by a friend who is working on a new series in Southern California. It’s called Lexus LaceUp Running Series and it stops in Ventura, Palos Verdes, Irvine, and Riverside. You can choose between Half Marathon, 10K, or 5K (my type of race!), and then meet the family at the finish line for complementary brunch! There’s also a health and fitness expo and live music at the end. There are a lot of races around LA but this one looks to be a blast.

    Check out to register, and let me know if any of y’all want to meet up to run together!

    My kids overheat pretty quickly in our hot weather also, so I’m a stickler about staying hydrated. I’ll have to pick up some Body Armour for them.

    Good reminder to take care and always watch over kids as they quickly overheat and forget about drinking while doing something. Thumbs up!

    My girls tried these drinks the other day at cheer and they loved it. There are so many good things inside of them.

    My daughter overheats quite easily, so these are perfect for her. Amazing pics BTW

    I’ve never tried Body Armor, but I think I’ll give it a shot. It’s really important to keep those electrolytes on a hot day.

    My boys love playing tennis with us. They totally do get crazy thirsty, though.
