After looking around the world for the best milk sources we could find, we ended up in our own back yard: California! We're proud to use Real California Milk as the foundation for our beverages, because of the state's commitment to high cleanliness standards, humane treatment to animals, and emissions reduction. The Real California Milk seal on our package represents the state's 1200 family dairy farms and the fact that we source 100% California milk.
All Bears products are made in facilities recognized and licensed by state food and drug agencies. Every batch of Bears is tested by a trusted and recognized third party laboratory to make sure they meet strict safety requirements. The FDA requires nutritional information to appear on most foods, but the FDA does not issue approval for food products. We take the safety of our products very seriously and do not make false claims.
For optimal performance, your child should enjoy Bears twice daily - in the morning and before bed.
We only use natural flavours, sweeteners, and coloring in our products. There are no artificial flavours, sweeteners, or coloring. Nearly all of our ingredients can be found as stand alone items in your local health food store. We made them that way so that we would feel comfortable feeding them to our own kids.
Bears nutritional shakes are recommended for children aged 4-14.
We are currently applying for Gluten Free certification :)
We recommend drinking Bears first thing in the morning on an empty stomach and last thing before bed for the body to slowly absorb throughout the night. It also makes a great snack between meals, especially with milk or in a smoothie!
Absolutely! Mix it with coffee or in your smoothies for an extra nutrient boost.

Bears intended mission was to provide kids the needed boost throughout the day for busy parents.
Bears Nutrition is made to be a great snack for any kid, not just active kids. Picky eaters of all sorts love Bears!
We agree that children get their nutritional needs from eating a well-balanced diet, however this is often not the case, especially during these busy times. Our goal is to provide supplemental nutrition in a format that kids like to drink to support healthy development.
According to the FDA, 2 to 3 grams of protein per kilogram of bodyweight is a good general guideline. Most children do not get the recommended daily amount.
Absolutely!. Over 200 children have helped create the taste profile of Bears and the number of children asking the product keeps growing. One time, co-founder David brought some samples to his friend's son's soccer tournament. While he was talking to the parents, two of the kids tried to sneak into his cooler to steal more samples! After that we felt the product was ready for launch :).
The nutrient profile was developed by a world-class pediatric nutritionist, and vetted by a Gold Medalist Olympian, who are both parents. The nutritional information is located on our product pages!
