Crayons has unveiled a line of natural and high fructose corn syrup-free sports drinks in the US.

The All Natural Sports Drink comes in an "environmentally friendly" 8-oz can and in three flavours, Playoff Punch, Leaping Lemon-Lime and Breakaway Berry.

The new sports drinks have been designed to "fill a void in the fast-growing functional beverage market for kids", the Washington-based company said today (1 September).

"I'm happy we finally have a healthier sports drink option for the next generation of athletes. We are confident that Crayons All Natural Sports Drinks will soon replace other sports drinks, juice boxes, and bottled waters," said Ron Lloyd, CEO of Crayons.

Crayons was launched in April 2004 by co-founders Duncan Seay & P.J. Palmer and is headquartered in Bellevue, Washington.
