When my daughter returns to school next week, I’ll be cringing in anticipation over the sign of the first virus she picks up. Yes, it’s inevitable as turkey on Thanksgiving…but I don’t relish the thought of her losing her lunch all over the floor, if you know what I mean. My sister, who happens to be an internist, has drilled the B.R.A.T. method for curing an upset stomach–Bananas, Applesauce, Rice and Toast repertoire we’ve come to know and love. But when you have extra picky eaters like we do at my house, it helps to have another more palatable solution on hand. Organic B.R.A.T. drinks are a convenient way to ease upset tummies back into the land of the living. These feel better drinks come in yummy flavors like cinnamon toast and chocolate honey (and of course, original and vanilla for the more cautious consumers), and have more appeal than a dry piece of white bread or mashed up fruit. We like that you can simply pour a glass or add it to cereal or oatmeal for a more substantial energy booster. Pretty good stuff for when it feels like you’re picking yourself up off the floor.
In a Nutshell: No need to break out the rice cooker or chop up a old banana into itty bitty pieces (how fun!). These drinkable stomach soothers will help kids and grown-ups get their tummies back on track.
