Milk – whether it’s white, chocolate or even strawberry – is packed with nine essential nutrients that are important for kids’ health. In fact, milk is the #1 food source of three of the four nutrients the Dietary Guidelines for Americans say both adults and children need to consume more of – vitamin D, calcium and potassium.
Studies show that children who drink flavored milk:
- Actually drink more milk overall
- Have better quality diets
- Do not have higher intakes of added sugar or total fat
- Are just as likely to be at a healthy weight compared to kids who do not consume flavored milk
Childhood obesity is an important issue in our society, and experts advocate balanced nutrition as the key to a healthy diet. Milk, including flavored milk, is proven to be a great beverage option for kids because it gives them the flavor they are looking for while delivering nutrients they need!
