PETALUMA, CALIF. — Clover Sonoma is debuting Clover the Rainbow, a new dairy brand designed to teach children about eating a variety of fruits and vegetables as part of a healthy diet.
“As a third-generation, family-owned company, we know the importance of family and pride ourselves on being the most trusted dairy in California, so the decision to produce the highest quality dairy products for kids felt natural,” said Marcus Benedetti, chief executive officer of Clover Sonoma. “Understanding the role a nourishing diet plays in overall well-being, we leveraged our knowledge and experience to bring families Clover the Rainbow. This new organic food brand provides necessary nutrition to growing kids and helps support good eating habits through a balanced diet. We’re starting Clover the Rainbow with organic smoothies, with much more goodness to follow soon.”
The brand is launching with three organic yogurt smoothies formulated with a blend of nonfat milk, whole milk, fruit, vegetables and probiotics. Available in strawberry carrot, blueberry beet and strawberry banana butternut flavors, the smoothies contain 120 to 130 calories, 8 grams of protein, 14 grams of sugar and 20% of the daily recommended value of calcium per bottle.
“Children should be eating superfoods daily as well as various whole and minimally processed sources of nutrients to gain their super strength,” said Sarah Koszyk, a registered dietitian. “As a superfood, Clover the Rainbow organic smoothies are a refreshing snack or recovery drink. The combination of drinkable yogurt with fruits and vegetables will give kids an extra kick of nutrients to get them energized, improve memory, build immunity, and boost gut health.”
Clover the Rainbow smoothies come in packs of four 6-oz bottles and retail for $6.49.
