About taken from the site: Pure and simple, Avitae is healthy hydration with an all-natural energy boost. So whether you’re looking to survive a work day or power through a workout, you can skip the coffee, soda, and energy drinks. Avitae has arrived, and it’s go time.

Avitae offers a full family of butt-kicking beverages, from the classic awesome twosome of water and caffeine in three energy levels to a collection of ridiculously delicious fruit flavors. Each is free of calories, sugar, artificial flavors, artificial colors and other ingredients you can’t pronounce, making them a welcome alternative to, well, the alternatives.DSC00570

 

My thoughts: I guess they can make anything have caffeine in it these days. My boyfriend is obsessed with caffeine and so he searches up products to try. Well, this time he ran across aviate which is water and caffeine which I’m not sure why water needs caffeine.  The aviate waters come in different milligrams of caffeine and also come in flavored. I got sent one of each product which was nice since the flavors just came out when I messaged them. The good news is this water won’t stain your teeth like coffee or pop so that’s a plus.

My boyfriend loves flavored water so he couldn’t wait to try these out. I did get to try a sip and to be honest I wasn’t a fan. But to be fair I’m not a big fan of flavored water anyway so I can’t really base my opinion on that. My other half loved the aviate water all except the 45 mg one but only because he said it didn’t contain caffeine.  Avitae would be nice to have especially if you’re worried about the effects of pop and coffee. If you’re trying to stay away from caffeine but you’re addicted to it maybe you can wean yourself off by using the 45 mg one. I know how bad of a headache a person gets when they try to stay away from caffeine after having it so long.

You can use the find now button on their website to find out where you can buy some closest to you. You can also buy them on amazon and office depot. Office depot looks cheaper only 24.99 for a pack of 24 but not sure on shipping.

About taken from the website: The Sneakz® story goes something like this…

Allison: I just made some awesome carrot-beet-spinach vegetable juice. Wanna try some?

Charlie: Sure…gulp gulp gulp…that’s actually really good, and packs in my veggies for the day! gulp gulp…

We should make a kid version of this for my little niece, Sage. She used to love veggies, but now when she sees them, she makes the “YUCK” face!

Allison: Well, what if we took something really yummy and snuck in veggies? Like chocolate milk? I bet she’d love that…

And to make a LONG story short…we brought in our foodie friend, Derek, to perfect our magic blend of chocolate milk and veggies, worked with our artist friend Bill to create our packaging, and voila, Sneakz was born!

We’re so excited to bring our yummy chocolate milkshakes to our nieces and nephews, friends and family, and any kids who struggle to get their daily veggie nutrition.

With Sneakz, we’re making healthy eating more fun and helping kiddos actually enjoy eating veggies. With Sneakz, we’re taking vegetables from YUCK to YUM!

My thoughts: Sneakz is a product that has hidden vegetables in it like the sauces I tried out last year. Only this is milk and comes in vanilla and chocolate. I usually don’t have trouble getting my daughter to eat vegetables she even eats broccoli. But being around my nephew and other smaller kids I could see them turning down plenty of good stuff.

My daughter has been sick so I couldn’t get her to try it. I did get my boyfriend to taste it since I’ve been pretty sick and can’t taste. On the first taste, my boyfriend wasn’t sure about it. After a couple drinks he said it tasted just like organic milk. So he couldn’t even tell it had vegetables in it which to me is a plus. With this, a kid can have something they love and also get healthy ingredients. Products like these impress me big time. If you have a problem child be sure to check out sneakz I’m sure your child will love it.

My thoughts: Me4kidz has a couple products to choose from and most of them look compact enough to fit into your purse/diaper bag or even your glove department. I remember receiving the cool it buddy in my citrus lane box but haven’t needed to use it yet.  I ended up receiving the nail buddy which comes in two different colors purple or pink. I got sent a purple one since I didn’t really have a preference for a color my daughter loves both.  Inside you get 2 nail files, 2 nail polishes we received pink and purple, nail brush, nail buffer, 2 sheets of nail stickers and, of course, the reusable case.

This case was perfect for our trip we took over the weekend it fit perfectly in my bag and didn’t take up a lot of room. It was nice not having to think about what I needed to take with me since my nails do break a lot. The only thing this kit could’ve used was the nail clippers but, of course, that’s not good for kids to get ahold of. Everything is safe for kids and the nail polish is even non-toxic. My daughter loves her nail buddy and after reading the me4kidz about us I feel comfortable buying from them. You also get a paper for a free refill kit when you buy your kit so that’s nice.myreviewtag

About Us:
(Information provided by the Re-Play website About Us section)

Re-Play recycled HDPE products are manufactured, assembled, packaged and tested in the USA! In fact, we are primarily a south-eastern USA operation – all the better for reducing our carbon footprint.  We know, its pretty exciting, right?  Re-Play is mainly on the east coast. Our molding plant is within 150 miles of our warehouse and our packaging is just 20 miles away. The total miles Re-Play travels from recycled material to finished product is 940 miles! Most conventional plastic goods made in China travel over 12,000 miles… that’s a huge savings of over 11,000 miles. We’re reducing greenhouse gases and saving energy!

Our products are made from recycled HDPE, which is #2 plastic, and is BPA free, Phthalate Free, PVC free.According to the Healthy Child Healthy World website, if you are unsure about safely using plastic items, look for the recycling codes 2, 4 or 5. Recycling codes 1, 3, and 6 can leach lead, bisphenol A, phthalates, and other stuff under certain circumstances. Recycling code 7 is the Other category. Some of these plastics are safer choices, like bioplastics such as PLA, while others can leach chemicals, etc. Read your labels for more information and proper care. Like most plastics (and melamine), Re-Play is dishwasher safe and should not be used in the microwave.

Because it’s made from #2, HDPE plastic – basically that means Milk jugs! It is BPA free, Phthalate Free, PVC free choice. And its one of the easiest plastics to recycle, and it can be recycled again and again. So drink your milk, and toss that jug in the recycling bin.

  • Recycling a 1-gallon plastic milk jug will save enough energy to keep a 100-watt bulb burning for 11 hours
  • Our color concentrate is safe for food contact; all the ingredients in the colors are FDA approved!

Under The Sea Set Review:

 It can be hard to find a well made, easy to use, long last and fun looking eating sets. Of course their are many on the market with your child’s favorite characters but they don’t always last with how rough children can be. My two kids have had their far share of dinner sets in their little lives, they normally come with a cup, a plate, a bowl, fork and spoon. For just those 5 items your going to pay anywhere of 15$ and up for those totally cool characters that are all over them that your kids love. They don’t last long and often times kids grow out of a certain character/design or want the new ones out. I would have never thought that dinner/meal time items could be so expensive but sure enough my eyes would widen every time I saw the prices. I have tried to get the cheaper and plain colored ones but they wouldn’t last either and weren’t made to great. There were times when my kids dropped a bowl, plate or cup one to many times and it would break or I would be washing it then bam it would break. I hope that someone can relate to me on this topic, this isn’t something that any parent speaks about before you have kids because it isn’t a hot topic. Luckily I found a great company who offers some wonderful products.

I’ve never heard of Re-Play before until I was looking online for a better solution to what was going on with meal times items for my kids. Both my kids have different personalities, like different things but they also have this thing where they love what the other has. It doesn’t matter what it is they always want the same as the other yet still having what they truly like. It may sound confusing except I’m rather positive some of you read that and were shaking your head saying yes. Since getting the Under The Sea collection my kids have been rather happy because they get the same exact items but they get to pick the color. Each day the kids take turns on who gets to pick first which has worked out well. They can pick pick all the same colored items or mix and match, so far they are liking to mix and match. The Under the Sea set comes with 3 Divided Plates, 3 Drinking Cups, 3 Spoons and 3 Forks which are all in fun vibrant colors. The spoons have a deep scoop for children learning to use utensils, the forks have durable round tips for safety, drinking cups are a great size for kids and the divided plates have deep walls that are great for beginning eaters or seasoned pros. The cups can be stacked easily and the sections on the divided plates give enough room for whatever meal you are serving your kids.

My kids are huge fans of these products and so am I! My youngest who is 2 yrs old does great with them especially the spoon. He normally has trouble keeping food on spoons but the Re-Play spoon is deep enough for him to keep food in it and actually get some in his mouth! I love how durable and easy to clean these are, I don’t have to worry about breaking them or ruining a picture on them. The cups are thick so they keep my kids drinks cold longer compared to other cups we have which is great considering we live in FL. Two f the best features that these have is that they are made of recycled products and are made in the USA! I mean come on you can’t get better then those two factors! For all these items you pay $22.00 which is super cheap for all that you are getting and they are made to quality. Since getting these I have gotten rid of some of the kids other plates, cups and utensils. It isn’t like my kids will miss them because all they want are the Re-Play ones and I don’t blame them. Re-Play offers many other colors and items, my daughter and son love the colors theirs came in! I highly suggest checking out this great company because I know you nor the little one in your life will be disappointed! Simply amazing!
