Vitamins and Minerals and Electrolytes, Oh My!
The major difference between coconut water and sports drinks, sodas, or water is that coconut water is naturally packed with minerals and electrolytes. These minerals and electrolytes are critical for growth and healthy production.

The following lists some key minerals and electrolytes found in coconut water.

Potassium promotes muscular growth and strength and heart and kidney health while increasing metabolism and reducing stress.

Manganese promotes healthy bone development and growth. This mineral is especially beneficial for active, growing kids.

Calcium, like Manganese, promotes healthy bone development and growth. Calcium intake is particularly important during childhood and adolescence since that is when our bones increase most in size and mass.

Iron plays a critical role in transporting oxygen to our cells and developing muscle protein and strength.

Coconut water also includes Vitamin A, which promotes retinal health, and Vitamin C, which boosts immunity.

That said, coconut water benefits kids in lots of other ways, too. Read on to learn more.

Say “No” to Sugar-ade
One of these alternatives is coconut water. Coconut water is:

  • All natural
  • Fat-free
  • Low in calories (about 60 per serving)
  • Naturally sweetened (no High Fructose Corn Syrup)
  • Additive-free
  • Cholesterol-free

In addition to these coconut water benefits, coconut water also promotes healthy skin and hair (what soft drink can say that?), calms upset stomachs, acts as a natural diuretic, and contains essential dietary fiber.

    Should daily quantity be limited like regular juices?

    I am glad I read this article about coconut water and kids. I didn’t realize how beneficial it could be for them. I have a VERY active 6 year old “tom boy”. I think this would be a great addition to her diet. It’s tough to get her to drink enough plain water. This is definitely something worth trying for my family.

    I thought that choosy moms chose Jiff. I guess this choosy mom is going to have to try Phenom. My 5 & 8 year olds are very active and love drinking juice, but dislike drinking plain water. I am very curious to have them try Phenom. It sounds way better than juice drinks. We will have to give it a try!

    After reading this article and seeing the benefits that Coconut Water can provide to my children, it makes me happy that I can give them something much more healthier than a bottle of electrolytes full of sugar. My kids are active and always drinking water. I can now substitute sugary drinks with Coconut Water to better nourish their life styes.

    My son loves coconut water. He is 5 years old and is very active in martial arts so we make sure he stays hydrated during his workouts.

    I have three boys who are all involved in sports, myself and dh also workout on a regular basis. After reading about Phenom I’d really like to give it a try. I think it could benefit all of us. If the price is right and it tastes good, then we will definitely switch to Phenom from our regular sports drink.
