the (hi)story of For Goodness Shakes Kids
When we set up For Goodness Shakes we created the original shakes for ourselves and fellow athletes.
Today life is a little different, we’re parents. As dads to three epic kids, we want them to grow up healthy, active and strong, as well as enjoying a good diet.
We found it hard to find kids’ products that weren’t sweetened with artificial sweeteners or loaded with sugar that caused sugar spikes and crashes.
So we developed For Goodness Shakes Kids. It’s a milk drink packed with nutrition like 25% more protein than normal milk. It’s low GI which means energy is released slowly.
Rich in calcium and with added vitamin D it helps normal bone development.
It’s designed, so kids can tuck in without mess – on route to and from after-school activities, weekend play and sport. It can be kept out of the fridge making it ideal for lunchboxes
and kit bags.

GI stands for Glycemic Index
The GI is a ranking of carbohydrate foods from 0 to 100 based on how quickly and how much they raise blood sugar levels.
Low GI produce a slower, lower rise in blood sugar levels. High GI produce a faster, higher rise in blood sugar levels often associated with energy spikes and crashes.
For Goodness Shakes Kids has been certified low GI with a score of 22 by Oxford Brookes University. Other low GI products include Broccoli (10), raw carrots (15), All Bran (30), Apples (38).
When to Use?
For Goodness Shakes Kids is designed for kids aged 5-11 to drink before or after activity.
It can be kept outside the fridge, so it is ideal for kitbags or lunchboxes.
The resealable lid means kids can enjoy it without mess even in the back of the car.
The nutrition profile also means For Goodness Shakes Kids could be used on the go in a rush as a good nutritious snack.

“As a parent you’re busy and you’re trying to buy drink for your children; its so easy to find things overcomplicated. I like the language (on For Goodness Shakes Kids), it tells me why its good”
“What’s brilliant is its essentially milk, so this is a good nutritious drink. It’s ideal to just pop in the bag, so they can drink this on the go in the back of the car without me having to worry. A brilliant size”
