KidsLuv

kidsluv“Juicetrepreneur” Ashi Jelinek hopes the Sharks like KidsLuv, her sugar free, eco-friendly juices for kids that are packed with vitamins, in Shark Tank episode 1118. Ashi first got the idea for Kids Luv while attending her son’s soccer game. She noticed parents watering down juice to give to their kids. That got her looking at the ingredients and she found most juice drinks have a lot of sugar and little nutritional value. That got her thinking – and experimenting.

In 2016, Ashi took the plunge and started her business. She describes KidsLuv as a “juice alternative.” She skips sugar altogether, sweetening with Stevia instead. Each of the four flavors – coconut, mango, guava, and orange peach – are blended with water, coconut water, essential vitamins and minerals, and natural flavors. Ashi puts her juice in Tetra Pak paper containers which are 100% recyclable.

She’s been making the rounds at beverage industry events for the past several years and is just starting to get traction. A sixteen pack costs  $37.99 – almost $2.40 a serving. KidsLuv is available in 21 stores in southern California and 4 stores in the San Francisco area. She also sells the product on Amazon and other online outlets. For a kid’s juice product to be competitive in a market dominated by big players, it needs to be on store shelves. She likely wants a Shark to help her with that.
