Nurture is a newly launched children’s drink, whose unique selling point is that it is a drink designed to boost children's immune systems. Each 200ml pouch is packed with the optimum daily amount of vitamins for children aged two to five years. We received two packs to try out, with each box containing four pouches, in two fruity flavours - Strawberry/Cherry and Orange/Pineapple.
I popped some in Pierre's backpack on our recent trip to Bodiam Castle and he gave them a try. Described as "fruity water", they are half fruit juice and half water, with no added sugar. I wasn't sure if they would be sweet enough to appeal but Pierre thought they were lovely and, after having had a taste, I agree with him.
As do his big sisters, even if they're out of the target age range ! The drinks provide vitamins B3, B5, B9, B12, C, D, calcium and zinc and they should help to strengthen the immune systems of children ages 2-5.
Flavour and concept-wise, they get a resounding thumbs up. We thought the 200ml pouches were quite big, especially given the target age range, but they are resealable so you don't have to drink it all in one go. The only thing that let them down slightly was the packaging - I don't know if some of the spouts are faulty or if they're just very hard to drink out of (you need to squeeze them with your teeth to get the drink to come out - while this prevents leaks and spillages, could a 2-year-old manage this?) but Juliette had great difficulty drinking from one of them, while the others were easier.
