Living Green With Jerinda: Organic B.R.A.T. Feel Better Drink For Kids

Most parents have heard of the B.R.A.T. diet: Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, Toast. One company decided to make that tummy-soothing diet into a tummy-soothing drink, the Organic B.R.A.T. Diet “feel better” drink.

This drink is contains Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, and is a great Tummy-soother for kids and grown-ups of all ages. Inspired by the original B.R.A.T. diet’s tummy-settling principles, Organic B.R.A.T. drinks are formulated with ingredients that settle an upset stomach due to the flu, digestive disorders, food allergies, morning sickness, and more. It also helps to calm vomiting and diarrhea while naturally restoring vital nutrients and electrolytes. Free of pesticides, common allergens, and added sugar, Organic B.R.A.T. is a 100% natural and organic drink that tastes good and comes in four delicious flavors: original, vanilla, cinnamon toast, and chocolate honey.

We were sent the Chocolate Honey and Cinnamon Toast to try out. We had to wait for one of the kids to get sick, which took a little while. One evening though, my 9 year old son, Avery, had an upset stomach due to eating too many sweets, so he tried the Chocolate Honey variety. He was pleased with the taste and texture and, within 30 minutes, his upset stomach was completely gone. The next morning he woke up feeling crummy again, so he drank the Cinnamon Toast drink and again was nausea-free within 30 minutes. I tried both versions myself just to see what their taste and textures were and I was pleasantly surprised as well. I won’t lie, they don’t taste great but they also don’t taste bad. They remind me of a watered-down Yoohoo. Their textures are very much like a cross between water and milk. It’s not bad at all. I, personally, am very happy that it’s all natural and organic, deciding factors when I purchase items for my kids.
