Milk: The Perfect Food

We all know that milk does the body good, but are your kids getting as much as they should? With a slew of nutritious elements, such as Calcium, Protein, Riboflavin, Vitamins A, D and B12, along with a host of other good-for-you nutrients, milk is a great way to help your kids grow strong bones, maintain their immune systems and convert food to energy.

Despite all the great things it has proven to do for our bodies, many kids simply refuse to drink milk. To help out, we’ve come up with some fun and easy ways to encourage your kids to drink more milk!

  • Make flavored milk! Chocolate, strawberry or vanilla, make the healthy drink more fun.
  • Warm up some milk and add a little honey and cinnamon to make a toasty before-bedtime drink.
  •  Smoothies! Blend up some fresh fruit and milk to make a great tasting and, of course, great-for-you treat.
  • Freeze milk and your favorite fruit to make healthy popsicles. You can even use different variations of milk like soy and almond!
