Why We Made Shakers
In a perfect world, parents would have plenty of time and energy to whip up gourmet, perfectly balanced meals and kids would devour them without question. But let’s be honest, parents are busy and kids can be picky! And that means it’s not always easy to make sure your little ones are getting all the nutrients that they need. 
 
When my kids were small, I vividly remember their various picky eating phases: like the great vegetable veto, or when whole meals were rejected because food was touching, or the times when yogurt, waffles, and fruit were the only foods they would eat. On the days when I couldn’t be sure they were eating perfectly balanced meals, I worried that something was wrong, or rather, that I was doing something wrong. 
 
We created Shakers to offer parents a healthy, balanced beverage that can help make sure your kids are getting the nutrients they need, on the days where sit down meals are a struggle or picky eating is wreaking havoc.  We wanted to make a product with simple natural ingredients, like real whole milk - not water, milk solids, and protein concentrates. Just organic, whole milk, fortified with the essential vitamins and minerals that kids need for their growth and development. 
 
Our intention was never to create a meal replacement, but rather to provide a delicious nutritional milkshake that could supplement a child’s diet alongside other foods. Didn’t have time to pack a complete lunch? Add a Shakers along with whatever you have to round out the meal. On the go and hungry?  Grab a Shakers and a piece of fruit or veggie sticks for a quick snack. I like to think of it as “the busy parent’s mealtime booster”.

These delicious nutritional shakes are so versatile, you can add extra nutrition into your child’s diet easily. Try using Shakers instead of milk in your favorite pancake or waffle recipe, or make your morning oatmeal with Shakers. They also make terrific smoothies or popsicles!  

We hope that you’re as excited about Shakers as we are and that your kids love them…even on the picky days!
