Superfruits For Kids: An Essential Guide For Curious Parents

Superfruits are fruits that contain protective nutrients. They can bring many health benefits to kids—including supporting healthy brain development and maintaining a strong immune system. Superfruits’ high-antioxidant content earns them an honorary status among fruits! 

Fact: This also gives them their disease-fighting ability as superfruits are known to have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and heart-protective properties. [1]

So far so good, but how do you lure your kids into eating more of these super nutritious foods? 

Kid-friendly smoothies and ice lollies work for some kids, but if you’re stuck with a picky eater: there are no quick fixes. Getting them to up their superfruit intake may require trial and error. 

Ideally, you can come up with an optimal diet plan rich in fruits and veggies and then integrate other superfruits using dietary supplements. This allows your kids to get healthy nutrients every day. And every day is as good as any other for endowing your kids with some super fruits’ superpowers, don’t you think? 

So, want to fuel your kids throughout the day and set them up for long-term overall good health? 

Below is our list of kid-friendly superfruit powder mixes alongside a little guide on which superfoods to look for to get the best health results for your kids.

NutriDyn Kids Fruits & Greens

Designed especially for kids, NutriDyn Fruits & Greens packs a kid-friendly superfruit dosage alongside a carefully crafted superfood formula. This high-nutrient powder contains whole food concentrates of blueberries, blackberries, goji berries, and other amazing superfruits. 

And that’s not all. 

The addition of vegetable extracts (such as broccoli, parsley, and spinach) makes NutriDyn an all-in-one kid-friendly treat—and a flavorful one at that

NutriDyn carries many benefits for your little ones—it protects them against free radicals, alkalizes their bodies, and supports their immune systems. 

And did we mention one serving of NutriDyn Fruits & Greens provides 1,500% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin C? Pretty cool, huh? 

Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of each ingredient in this table.

Acai Berries

Acai berries have been linked with boosting heart and skin health as well as immunity. Because of this, they’ve been in the public limelight. 

They’re also high in antioxidant content—towering over other berries—how about that for a fact? 

This is best reflected in Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC), a score that measures the antioxidant content of foods. 100 grams of acai berries boasts an ORAC score of 15,405 while the same amount of blueberries scores 4,669. [2]

Evidence also suggests that acai berries can help against free radicals and cellular damage and reduce levels of blood sugar, blood fats, and insulin. [3, 4, 5]

Goji Berries

Goji berries are high antioxidant fruits also rich in amino acids, fiber, iron, and polysaccharides. This makes them a healthy choice for those who want to boost their energy levels and immune system

That aside, the fruit helps benefit your kid’s eye, liver, kidney, and digestive health. [6

These berries (native to China) also have immune-protecting, brain-boosting, and anticancer properties. [7]

Noni Fruit 

Noni fruit has been used for centuries as a functional food in its native Polynesia, but it’s recently gained global attention. The fruit has great health-supporting potential and is linked to several important health benefits. 

It’s traditionally eaten as fermented food but it’s now also available as a freeze-dried powder extract and an unpasteurized fermented juice concentrate — perfect for when eating fresh produce is not an option. 

As far as science goes, noni fruit juice helps lower high blood pressure. It can also help lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease in heavy smokers. [8]

Simply Fruits & Greens

Simply Fruits & Greens is another convenient way to get more healthy superfruits into your picky eaters. 

Packed with vitamins, minerals, and polyphenols this superfruit powder is derived from 100% natural superfruit concentrates

And here’s the best thing—it contains 20+ servings of fruits and vegetables in just one serving. That’s definitely more than an average kid can eat or consume like… ever!

This daily drink is designed to provide growing bodies with the energy and immune support they need. 

Plus it comes in 6 delicious flavors (because there can’t be too much of a good thing). 

This high-concentration superfruit extract is also rich in dietary fiber, probiotics, and important digestive enzymes that support healthy digestion.

Simply Fruits & Greens is also driven by berry power. Berry power times fifteen to be exact. That said, berries are naturally rich in phenolic compounds—which can be super effective at preventing oxidative stress-related diseases. [9

The powder can also help boost energy and metabolism as well as promote fat-burning and speed up recovery.

Like with NutriDyn, let’s take a look at the benefits in this table.

Strawberries are not only tasty but they’re also super-healthy thanks to high contents of polyphenols and vitamin C. These antioxidants make them protective against heart disease and certain types of cancers. [10, 11

Strawberries also improve insulin sensitivity in non-diabetic adults. [12]

What’s more, strawberry’s anti-inflammatory properties can help protect your kids from inflammation and help you up your fiber intake—extending its impact on your overall health. 

Fact: When people think of vitamin C they typically think of citrus fruit, specifically oranges. Yet a handful of strawberries can easily give you an amount of vitamin C equal to what you’d get from an entire orange.


Cranberries are superfruits super rich in beneficial phytochemicals. More specifically, they owe their unique chemical structure to A-type proanthocyanidins (PACs) which makes them stand out from other fruits typically rich in B-type PACs.

Reportedly, it’s this compound that gives cranberries their antimicrobial activity against the bacterial E. Coli. [13

Cranberries are also rife with polyphenols which give them anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anticarcinogenic, and antioxidant properties.

Some randomized clinical studies also link eating cranberries to reduced levels of LDL cholesterol and total cholesterol, alongside increased levels of HDL cholesterol. [14]

Pomegranates are packed with antioxidants such as anthocyanins, ellagitannins, and organic acids effective at reducing oxidative stress. 

They also have a plentiful vitamin C content, supporting antibody production and leading to an improved function of the immune system. Studies in mice suggest the plant’s natural defenses can create a beneficial microbiome in these animals keeping bad bacteria at bay. [15

Human research shows that pomegranate juice and extracts can also help lower blood pressure, triglycerides, and LDL cholesterol. [16] Other studies reveal they can also promote recovery from muscle damage. [17]

Fresh vs Powdered Goodness? 

Consuming fresh fruit is second to none if you want to make the most of super-healthy superfruits. But this isn’t always possible—as sometimes fresh fruit might not be at hand (like with acai berries) or may be too expensive. Mixed superfruit powders can help you pack an extra punch and help increase your kids’ superfruit intake.

Below are some pointers to help you sort out your fresh fruit vs. powder dilemma. 

  • When freeze-dried, dehydrated, and ground into a fine powder, superfruits retain much of the phytonutrients. This means you can benefit from quality powder mixes to a similar degree as if the fruit is eaten fresh. [18] We also use the low-temp processing technique at Simply Nutrients, so all the vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients are retained.
  • Fruit mixes are concentrated and are easy to mix into drinks and smoothies. With fruit and greens powders a little goes a long way. Just one scoop of our Simply Fruits & Greens powder provides your kids with the most essential nutrients for the day.
  • The freeze-drying technique eliminates fiber. But, the new superfruit powder formulas are often fortified with fiber blends to make up for this loss in the production process. 

Should Kids Take Superfruit Supplements? 

Ideally, children should source their vitamins and minerals from whole foods. However, they won’t always be able to meet their dietary needs for fruits and veggies the traditional way, and superfruit supplements may be needed

The general rule of thumb is that children should take dietary supplements only if they’re deficient in any particular nutrient. A physician will typically recommend supplements if your kid is following a vegetarian or a vegan diet, if they have a certain medical condition, or if there’s a nutrient deficiency.

That said, you should touch base with your child’s pediatrician before choosing one of our superfruit supplements. If they deduce your kid needs extra minerals and vitamins they’ll give you the green light.

Superfruits have powerful antioxidant properties that can give your kids a healthy start to life, many times over than that of traditional fruits. 

To achieve optimal health goals, make sure you include fresh veggies and fruits in your kid’s diet. Then level up with some mixed powders to ensure you’re keeping on top of their healthy nutrient intake 

Hint: the powders taste great in shakes and smoothies. Plus they bring extra nutritional value.
