MINNETONKA, Minn., Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, parents have a new way of providing their children with optimal nutrition and protective benefits with the launch of BOOST(R) Kid Essentials Nutritionally Complete Drink. BOOST Kid Essentials Drink--an innovative product developed by Nestle HealthCare Nutrition--is the only nutritionally complete drink that gives kids ages 1 through 13 the power of immune-strengthening probiotics plus complete, balanced nutrition. Probiotics, delivered through the BOOST Kid Essentials straw, have been clinically shown to help strengthen the immune system to help keep kids healthy(1,2).

"We are offering parents, for the first time, one complete drink for children that helps supports a healthy immune system and fills in the nutritional gaps they may be worried about," says Barbara McCartney, Vice President of Retail Marketing, Nestle HealthCare Nutrition. "The patented straw, which contains probiotics, is a kid-friendly way parents can bolster their children's natural defenses and help support their

healthy growth and development."

Probiotics are live, active cultures that--when consumed in adequate amounts--provide several health benefits, including aiding digestion and supporting a healthy immune system. Together, the power of immune-strengthening probiotics plus complete, balanced nutrition gives parents a delicious option to help keep their children strong and healthy.

Whether a child is having trouble gaining weight, is below or slightly below growth percentiles, resists eating enough nutritious foods, or needs extra nutrition to maintain an active lifestyle, BOOST Kid Essentials Drink can fill in nutritional gaps and help support the strong growth and healthy immune system every child deserves. As a refreshing treat or meal, BOOST Kid Essentials Drink can be part of a child's daily diet.

"Parents can feel good knowing they are building the right health foundation for their children with this one-of-a-kind product," says McCartney.

BOOST Kid Essentials Drink is also digestion-friendly, being lactose free and gluten free, and does not contain high-fructose corn syrup. BOOST Kid Essentials Drink is available in three kid-approved flavors: chocolate, vanilla and strawberry, all in a kid-friendly package that is spill-resistant and easy to grip.

BOOST Kid Essentials Drink is now available at retail stores nationwide. For more information on Nestle Nutrition's BOOST Kid Essentials Drink, parents can visit or talk with their pediatrician.
