hint® kids is delicious hint® water in kid-friendly Tetra boxes that children can carry around, throw in their lunchbox and enjoy throughout the day! hint® kids will help children everywhere to fall in love with water instead of sugary juice drinks. Having long decried the high sugar content of apple juice and other kids’ boxed drinks, hint is now using the same 200mL Tetra boxes to offer a delicious alternative with no sugar and no diet sweeteners. hint® kids comes in four delicious fruit flavors- Watermelon, Cherry, Blackberry and Apple.

Are hint® kids boxes recyclable?

Just like milk boxes, juice boxes, and other water boxes, hint’s kid-friendly boxes are recyclable in properly outfitted facilities, such as those in use in our home town of San Francisco. Unfortunately, many places in the United States are still not yet be able to recycle them. We chose to move forward with this packaging at the request of many of the parents out there who drink hint’s bottled products but wanted a small package to share with their kids.  Unlike the situation with our larger adult-targeted products, we feel that Tetra boxes were the best available choice for small kid-friendly containers. Note that in order to maximize recyclability and prevent straws from getting into our oceans, Tetra recommends pushing the small straws inside of the box when you are through with the drink inside.

 

Are hint® kids boxes and straws BPA free?

Yes, hint® kids packaging is BPA free.

 

My child has food allergies. Is hint® kids safe for them to drink?

If your child has serious allergies, you should consult with their pediatrician about what products are safe for them to consume. Here are some things for you and your child’s doctor to consider regarding hint® kids:

  • hint® kids does not use any “class 1” allergens (such as soy, peanuts, nuts, shellfish) and our manufacturers follow standard practices to avoid cross contamination with these ingredients.
  • hint® kids is about 99.9% water.
  • Some individuals have less common allergies (for example peaches or oranges). Unfortunately, we cannot assure you that our products will not contain traces of those particular ingredients, because manufacturers (ours and others we have interviewed) don’t follow the same precautions with respect to general ingredients as they do with respect to class 1 allergens.
