Carnation Breakfast Essentials® provides delicious, nutrient-packed drinks to help growing kids and teens get the essential nutrition they need to start the day right.

A child's diet helps them to meet their daily nutritional needs. Yet, according to the most recent Dietary Guidelines for Americans, children and adolescents are not consistently eating the recommended servings of major food groups, including vegetables, fruits, whole grains and dairy foods, making them susceptible to nutrient gaps. In fact, 90% of children (ages 4-18) fall short of meeting dietary needs for one or more key nutrients.*
