HOBOKEN, NJ. — Nestle SA brand Carnation Breakfast Essentials unveiled its new line of nutritional beverages, Breakfast Essentials Fruit & Protein smoothies.
The drinks feature strawberry, banana and apple purees, equivalent to 1/3 cup of fruit, along with 5 grams of protein per 8 oz serving and 21 vitamins and minerals. The product is designed to support brain, bone and immune health and supplement key nutrient deficiencies in the diets of most children between 4 and 18, per the manufacturer.
“Nutrients that are missed at breakfast are unlikely to be made up later in the day, so we developed our new Carnation Breakfast Essentials Fruit & Protein Smoothie nutritional drinks to provide a delicious way for parents to support their families’ nutrient intake and help fuel them for their day,” said Mohini Joshi, vice president of brand marketing for Nestle Health Science USA.
Joining Carnation’s portfolio of nutritional powders and ready-to-drink beverages, the smoothies are now available online through the company’s website and in stores at Walmart locations.
