Body Armor Sports Drink {Sponsored Post}

    I was given the opportunity to sample a six pack of Body Armor Super Drink-Superior Hydration.  It deserves to be said in a super-hero-announcer voice!! 

     I am no scientist, nor am I a nutritionist/dietician, however, I am a mom to three beautiful, growing daughters.  I can see how what they put into their bodies affects them, both good and bad.  I am always a sucker for juice pouches or powder packets, however, I am also really into my sanity.  I also have a major awareness of the long term benefits and destruction of the things we give our children. The amounts of sugar that can be found in so many juices or soft drinks, makes me wish they never new that there was anything to drink besides water and the actual juice from actual fruit.  However, we take road trips sometimes, sometimes a trip to the gas station for a snack is fun, or picking out a fun drink can be a real treat!

    I am so glad we got the chance to ‘make the switch’ to BodyArmor!
