Sport Beans offer the same benefits to children as they do for adults. Children lose fluids and burn carbohydrates during sports and play. The amounts of carbohydrates, electrolytes, and vitamins in Sport Beans are safe and appropriate for children to use when participating in rigorous activities.
The electrolytes in Sport Beans - sodium and potassium - are present in very low amounts and are designed to aid in fluid balance. Children, like adults, need these electrolytes for good health.
The % Daily Value (%DV) of nutrients set by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is a recommended intake set for various nutrients such as protein and carbohydrate. The DV is based on an average consumer (four years and older) who intakes 2000 calories daily. The Daily Values are considered appropriate for anyone who matches this description, including children.
However, Jelly Belly does NOT recommend Extreme Sport Beans™ for children, teens, or pregnant or nursing women. For them, we recommend our regular Sport Beans.
