School is tough, so anything we as parents can do to help our kids stay focused is a good thing. With 8 grams of high quality protein and a cost of just $0.25 per glass, milk can play a key part in your meals to help kids stay focused all day long.
Protein to Stay Focused. Vitamins to Stay Healthy
Back to school is back, and that means the kiddos need to be on their games. That’s why it’s so important to make sure they have the nutrition they need to kick butt at school. Milk is a great way to do that. Kids need protein at every meal to help their bodies use it effectively. That’s especially true for breakfast. Their little bodies haven’t had anything for hours, so they need to be powered up right. Protein at breakfast help kids feel full and satisfied, allowing them to stay focused on their school work and activities until lunch without feeling hungry.
Milk is a powerhouse source of protein and vitamins. That’s why it’s so great for helping kids stay focused and powered through their day. With 8 grams of protein, 9 essential nutrients, potassium, calcium, and Vitamins D and A, an 8 ounce glass of milk is liquid energy for a healthy body. The American Academy of Pediatrics even says that milks is a better source of bone-building nutrients than supplements, vegetable, or milk-like fortified drinks.
Did you know that many kids fall short on important nutrients in their diets? Milk is the top food source for making sure kids get what they need, containing three of the four most likely to be absent from a child’s diet – calcium, Vitamin D, and potassium. Milk helps bridge that nutrient gap, helping keep kids healthy, active, and focused.
In fact, milk is so important to a child’s diet, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommend including it in the diets of children. It’s recommended to give a children over 8 years of age 3 servings of low-fat or fat-free milk and milk products each day, 2 1/2 servings per day for children 4 to 8 years of age, and as much as 4 servings to adolescents to support bone growth. Milk is important!
A Safe Source of Zing
Milk is one of those foods that helps your kids stay focused and helps you feel good about what you’re feeding them. You may not know it, but milk is one of the safest foods available. All milk – whether its regular, organic, flavored, or white – is safe, wholesome, and naturally nutrient-rich. It’s minimally processed, and pasteurization is simple process making milk safe to drink. So always make sure what you’re buying is milk. Real milk has a short ingredient list. It’s just milk and Vitamins A and D. That’s it, and that’s all.
