I remember those commercials from when I was a kid, that said something along the lines of “Milk, it does a body good” and so milk has always been a staple in our refrigerator. We drink it with meals, pour it over cereal, use it in recipes, you name it. We even use it in tasty treats like this strawberry frozen yogurt milkshake that I’m sharing today.
Drinking milk has many benefits because of the nutrients like calcium, potassium and vitamin D that’s found in it, but studios show that kids these days just aren’t drinking as much as they should be, thus not getting enough of milk’s nutrients. These nutrients are hard to get without milk, so I do everything that I can to ensure that my kids get the 9 essential nutrients in milk to help them grow strong.
Did you know that there are four nutrients that many Americans are lacking? Surprisingly, 3 of those (calcium, vitamin D and potassium) are found in milk! Milk also contains a natural, high-quality protein (per 8oz glass), which is a complete protein, unlike many of the incomplete proteins found in some plants. Your body actually needs some of these amino acids that these incomplete proteins just don’t have.
Milk is available at grocers everywhere, like Pick ‘n Save and is an inexpensive way to provide your kids with the protein (per 8oz glass) and other nutrients that they need to grow up strong.
