The kids are back in school and that means it is time for homework, after school practices and of course – school lunches! Moms and Dads agree that they want to make sure that their kids eat a nutritious lunch so that they can stay healthy and active and get the most out of each school day. Horizon Dairy couldn’t agree more!
They have created a free back-to-school resource with the help of Elizabeth Somer, nationally recognized registerd dietician, called “5 Lunch Needs and 50 Ways to Please” which helps parents and kids make smart, nutritious lunch box choices. The easy-to-use tool outlines the five main food groups and 10 kid-approved lunch box ideas under each category. The idea is for kids and parents to use the tool together each week to pick and pack balanced lunches. You can download your free copy from Horizon Dairy.
We recently tried this milk for the first time. My kids asked for a second box every time we served it to them. Guess that means that they liked it and had no idea that it was even healthier for them than regular milk Horizon Dairy offers the only milk box with DHA Omega-3, a long-chain omega-3 fatty acid that has been studied for its role in supporting healthy brain development. As a mom, I appreciate knowing that my kids not only enjoy this, but they are getting the best benefits by drinking it.
I will admit that both my kids and I weren’t sure about this product as it doesn’t need to be refrigerated. We both wondered if it would taste good or not. Once they took one sip, they realized that it was delicious and now, they were able to enjoy the chocolate milk that mom rarely buys for them. (So yep, mom earned a few brownie points with the kids)!
Here is a little bit of additional information about this product:
