Looking for tips on how to serve and mix our powder products? You've come to the right place.
If you’re a parent of a sensitive child, you know what a challenge it can be for them to try new foods. We’ve talked to hundreds of smart parents who’ve come up with creative ways to serve Aspire Nutrition’s powder supplements to their kiddos. Below you will find some tried and true strategies.
What Parents Need to Know About Serving
Start by mixing the powder into any food or beverage that is room temperature or cooler.
Mix with Smoothies
I’ve tried mixing our powder products with just about every type of food and drink imaginable – and by far, smoothies work the best.

Mix with Fruit Juice or other Drinks
This is the most popular way that parents use. The following juices have worked particularly well:
- Unfiltered Organic Pear Juice
- Orange Juice
- Citrus/ Tropical Juices (these are very good at concealing any taste)
- Sports Drinks

“I give Bio-Heal to my child in his favorite drink which is Lemonade. He loves all kinds of flavors, raspberry, mango, blueberry, as long as it has that tart lemonade taste he takes it down. I mix the powder in a little at a time and I use a nifty little milk frother/mixer I found on Amazon” - Martha May
Mix with Soft Foods
Many soft foods mix very well with our powder products. You may want to try some of the following:
- Sorbet/ GFCF Ice Cream
- Applesauce or mashed banana
- Almond Butter
- Spaghetti Sauce (after it’s been cooked)
- On top of pasta as kids think it's parmesan cheese
NOTE: Do not cook or bake with our products, as this could affect the potency.
Use a “Special” Cup or Bottle
For some kids, it works well to put their supplements into a special cup (maybe one with a favorite cartoon character or logo) to help create a consistent and appealing routine that they can count on. A straw can help hide the appearance of anything floating, and a covered cup conceals the appearance of anything out of the ordinary.
Make Popsicles, Ice Cubes, or Gelatin Cups
Some moms have told us they had good success putting the powders into homemade popsicles that their kids eat with meals. Others have even mixed it into homemade gelatin to make small gelatin cups!
Our products can also be frozen into ice cubes (one dose per cube). The child can either suck the cube directly, or it can be put in a drink.
For some families, using reinforcers (such as a toy or sticker) can help a child be motivated to take their supplements. ABA sessions can be a great time to teach kids about these reinforcements.
