New Stonyfield YoKids Smoothies Shake Up Snack Time

Yummy Yogurt Smoothies Combine Organic Yogurt With Real Fruit and Veggies

LONDONDERRY, NH -- (Marketwire) -- 02/07/13 -- Stonyfield, the world's leading organic yogurt company, recently launched its first drinkable yogurt just for kids. YoKids Smoothies are made with real organic fruit and vegetable purees in two delicious flavor combinations: Strawbana and Very Berry. They have a yummy fruity taste and since they're available in a kid-friendly size, YoKids Smoothies are perfect for a healthy satisfying snack at home, in a lunch box or on the go.

YoKids Smoothies are the only drinkable yogurt for kids on the market made with real fruit and veggie puree. Strawbana is a mix of organic carrot, strawberry, banana and yogurt while Very Berry is made up of organic sweet potato, raspberry, strawberry and yogurt. Smoothies also offer one-third of the recommended daily allowance for calcium and are an excellent source of vitamin D making them a smarter snack choice that's easy to shake and serve!

"Yogurt is an excellent snack food for all children," explained America's Pediatrician, Dr. Bill Sears. "Kids love to snack and should graze on healthy foods during the day. I often recommend that they snack on yogurt because it's high in protein, it's high in calcium, and it satisfies them."

"When it comes to feeding kids food that's good for them, there are two big challenges -- having it handy when kids are hungry and finding nutritious food that tastes good to little ones," shared Stonyfield Vice President of Marketing and mom of twins, Kristen Deshaies. "So we crafted a delicious recipe that uses real fruits and veggies, poured it into kid-sized bottles that are convenient for moms and dads, and YoKids Smoothies were born! Kids love the fruity taste and parents love that their kids are being nourished in such a healthy way."

Like all Stonyfield yogurts, YoKids Smoothies are certified organic, so moms and dads can rest assured they don't contain any artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners or preservatives and are produced without the use of toxic persistent pesticides, antibiotics, synthetic growth hormones and genetically engineered ingredients (GMOs).

YoKids Smoothies are available nationwide in 3.1-ounce 6-packs with a suggested retail price of $3.69. They join the popular existing YoKids yogurt line-up, which includes YoKids lowfat organic yogurt 6-packs (Strawberry, Banana/Strawberry and Strawberry Vanilla/Blueberry) with a suggested price of $3.69 and 8-pack YoKids Squeezers (Strawberry, Cherry/Berry, and Blueberry/Lemonade) with a suggested price of $3.69.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
