Froose® is the brand name for a line of delicious and nutritious whole food beverages and snacks specially made and packaged for the healthy growth and development of young children. Froose®, the beverage, for example, is a combination of whole organic gluten free grains and 100% fruit juice. The Froose® beverage was the initial product to proudly carry the “Froose®” brand name and was developed by a concerned mom and food scientists at The International Food Network at Cornell who were looking for a truly innovative solution to the lack of healthier drink options for young children.
Froose® represents all-natural, whole food based (gluten free organic whole grains or vegetables) patented products unlike any other. For example, the Froose® beverage provides your child with all the benefits of gluten free organic whole grains and 100% fruit juice in a smooth and delicious drinkable form. Unlike juice and milk, Froose® delivers fiber and whole grain nutrients that are not present in other beverages for children.
Froose® combines the best of Gluten-Free Organic Whole Grains and Fruit to make a delicious and nutritious alternative to juice that is naturally low in sugar and an excellent source of fiber…as much as eating a whole piece of fruit. Froose® delivers whole grain goodness, fiber and half the sugar found in a typical serving of juice. Froose® uses a whole grain base and flavors it with 100% fruit concentrates and organic brown rice syrup. All the elements of the whole grain are incorporated in the final Froose® beverage. Nothing is stripped out. The soluble and insoluble fiber elements along with the whole grain vitamins and other nutrients are in the Froose® beverage. Regular juice consists of simple carbohydrates coming primarily from the sugar of the fruit without all of the other nutrients found in fruit. Pediatricians warn against over consumption of juice by young children and, in fact, the American Academy of Pediatricians recommend no more that 1 ½ cups of juice per day for a two year old. Froose® is the healthy alternative to juice for kids.
When are our products useful?
Froose products are healthier alternatives to the familiar beverage and snack items that young children enjoy. Enjoyed as a lunchbox item or snack throughout the day, Froose provides the whole food nutrients and fiber that are so often lacking in a young child’s diet and gives busy parents the peace of mind that only whole food, 100% natural, high quality snacks and beverages can. When fresh fruits and vegetables are not available or convenient Froose can fill in the gaps. Froose makes a great alternative to or accompaniment for fresh fruits and vegetables. Easy and convenient for travel, carpool or at-home, Froose is the anytime, any day, anywhere solution.
Why are whole grains so important for young children?
Whole grains supply complex carbohydrate, protein, fiber and other nutrients children need to maintain energy and build bones and muscles. Young children, just like adults, need fiber and the vast majority do not consume even close to the recommended daily amount. Whole grains and fiber have been clinically proven to prevent heart disease and cancers. With the obesity epidemic raging in our youth, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes and cancers are showing up in children at younger and younger ages. Adopting nutritionally sound eating habits from the start that include the incorporation of more whole grains in the diet of children throughout the day will set them on the path for better lifelong health.
Froose® is a made up word that is trademarked. Understanding that young children love characters and love to rhyme, we invented the Froose® Moose character theme for our product line. A great deal of thought, commitment, energy and time went into developing the Froose® product offerings. Although we are passionate about and dedicated to delivering nutritionally superior products to young children, we also firmly believe that healthy products can be formulated to taste great and be fun for kids. The Froose® Moose family of Milton, Meredith, Molly and Mitchell delight our young consumers and certainly help to establish at an early age the connection between nutrition, better choices, great taste and fun.
