Don’t forget the milk

A recent report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revealed that not enough children and teens drink low-fat milk.  Instead, many are drinking 2 percent or whole milk regularly. However, recommendations from the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010, and the American Academy of Pediatrics state that all children aged two years and over should be drinking low-fat milk in order to avoid unnecessary fat and calories and to help prevent obesity.

Well guess what?  We’ve got a solution! To all the moms out there, packing school lunches and stocking cupboards and fridges nationwide: meet Horizon Organic’s lowfat milk boxes.  Not only are they convenient, but the delicious milk inside has changed from 2% to 1%, thereby reducing the amount of sugar, fat and calories in our plain, chocolate, strawberry and vanilla single serve milk boxes.

So lose the guilt and start handing these puppies out to the kids.  You can even sneak a few yourself guilt-free – the grown-ups around here have certainly been known to knock a few back ourselves…
