Living Without's Favorites: Doctors Orders
Faced with two sick children, Greg and Ilsa Toepfer’s pedicatrician recommended the B.R.A.T. diet (banana, rice, applesauce, toast) to provide nourishment and sooth their upset stomachs. It failed to satisfy the whiney, dehydrated youngsters and so was sparked the idea for Organic B.R.A.T., a feel-better drink the Toepfers created for ailing kids with sensitive tummies. Fortified with a balanced ratio of electrolytes and nutrients to promote rehydration and gastrointestinal health, Organic B.R.A.T. contains brown rice, banana and applesauce with no added sugar. It’s free of lactose, casein, gluten/wheat, soy and corn. Good tasting, kids go for it and the fan base is spreading to older folks, particularly those with digestive disorders and on special diets. Organic B.R.A.T. is available online and at a growing number of grocery stores nationwide.
