Vernon, NJ (February 20, 2018) – Marisa Teiner, nutritionist, health supportive chef and mother of two, today announces the launch of Feel Better Pops, the first therapeutic ice pop for kids. Consider Feel Better Pops super fruit heros, out to save parents who struggle to get their children to eat anything beneficial when they’re suffering from the flu or a stomach virus. Feel Better Pops boost immune systems and digestive health by combining ingredients such as wholesome fruit, coconut water, a hint of herbs and GanedenBC30®Probiotic. Families seeking to support their wellness or enjoy a healthy refreshment can now purchase Feel Better Pops at select locations in NJ, NY and PA. A list of retailers is available at www.feelbetterpops.com.
“The days of force feeding our children over-the-counter pills, teas, tinctures, capsules, and powders are long gone,” says Marisa Teiner, founder, Feel Better Pops. “Parents today are making conscious decisions about the products we put in our kid’s bodies. We want something that not only makes our little ones feel better but makes us feel good about giving it to them. My natural and functional, but mostly fun, way.”
Nature’s sweetest remedy, Feel Better Pops are free of anything artificial– there are no colors, flavors, dyes, parabens, or genetically modified or engineered ingredients. Every ingredient, including the sweetener, is chosen not only for taste but functionality and low allergen risk. Feel Better Pops are dairy-free and no gluten is used in the ingredients.
The most important ingredient in Feel Better Pops is of course, love. Teiner was inspired to develop the product by her popsicle-loving son, Chace. Whenever Chace didn’t feel good, he asked for ice pops. Knowing that the pops cooled his throat, hydrated his body and made him feel better, Teiner began to make her own pops with wholesome ingredients. With 20 years experience in the wellness field under her belt, she had a vision to bring her pops to the masses. But, first the momprenuer needed a few more experts on board.
Teiner partnered with Flock Food Solutions, food scientists from Penn State, to create each flavor. The team only uses a patented probiotic that is temperature stable. Feel Better Pops are scientifically tested for probiotic viability and amount, and are the only pops on the market that can support immune and digestive health claims. This is backed by the GanedenBC30®Probiotic seal.
Each flavor of Feel Better Pops is simple and pure. Batches are made with fruit first, followed by coconut water then hints of herbs and a powerful punch of GanedenBC30®Probiotic. Honey and a pinch of organic cane sugar add a final touch of sweetness. There are currently three varieties:
● Pineapple Banana Smoothie: Enjoy a taste of the tropics. Banana puree (boasting fiber and potassium) brings a creamy smoothie taste, while pineapple helps improve digestion by providing fiber and bromelain, a type of digestive enzyme. The addition of mint helps promote digestion and soothe stomachs.
● Apple Pie: Indulgence on ice! Applesauce and pears (both contain soluble and insoluble fiber) are featured with hints of cinnamon and ginger, which aids in soothing the stomach.
● Simply Peach: Simply delicious. Peaches are noted for alkaline and contain fiber. Combining them with ginger helps to aid digestion and saliva flow.
Next up: The team is building the brand to include more flavors and target common ailments including a throat soother pop.
