Chocolate Milk Yum! Horizon Organic lowfat Chocolate Milk with DHA Omega-3 Giveaway

Sunday, February 28, 2010
One of my favorite drinks as a child was milk but not just any milk... chocolate milk. It's creamy chocolately goodness was always a treat no matter the time of day.

Mmm chocolate milk!

"Horizon Organic lowfat Chocolate Milk with DHA Omega-3 provides a great tasting and easy way to add calcium and DHA to your family’s diet. DHA Omega-3 is an important nutrient that helps support heart, brain and eye health, and it’s available in lowfat half gallons."




Even though chocolate milk is delicious, I have always thought it to be less nutritish than White milk and have limited the amount my children consume.  However,  flavored milk provides the same nine essential nutrients as unflavored milk (calcium, potassium, phosphorous, protein, vitamins A, D, B12, Riboflavin and niacin), and can help kids meet their calcium requirements.

According to 2005 USDA data, 66% of the milk chosen by children in schools is flavored.  Which glaringly shows that a majority of kids Love the Taste of Flavored Milk. 

My kids really like the taste of this milk and say it taste just like they drink in school. Horizon Organic lowfat Chocolate Milk with DHA Omega-3 is a great way to give my children what they want while giving them the nutrients they need and I will continue to purchase it for them as long as they will drink it.


What is DHA?


DHA belongs to a category of healthy fatty acids known as Omega-3's. Found in high concentrations in the tissues of the brain and eye, DHA Omega-3 is thought to help support healthy function in these areas. DHA has also been shown to help support heart health.



DHA provides a nutritional boost for children's growing minds and bodies. Children's brains grow incredibly fast. In fact, the brain nearly quadruples in the first five years of life.


DHA is a key structural component of the brain, yet many young children don't get their recommended daily amount of DHA as it is found in a limited number of food sources.


Horizon Organic Milk Plus DHA Omega-3 is fortified with a natural, 100 percent vegetarian and sustainable source of DHA - a safe, wholesome, delicious way to bring more of this important nutrient into your family's diet.

I love Chocolate milk! I add protein powder to it first thing in the morning. Mornings are hard for me to get breakfast into me because I'm so busy with the kiddos.

Mom's Place said...

I have 4 locations! 2 Albertson's, 1 HEB, and 1 Walgreens!!!

Kelly said...

I'd like to try it b/c DHA supports heart health and we have a history of heart trouble on one side of the family. Thanks for the chance!

I would like to try it since DHA supports brain & eye health. I know DHA is important for my toddler's brain development, and also I have a family history of Alzheimer's disease so anything that supports brain function might benefit me there. I also have bad eyesight (and a family history of glaucoma) and need to protect my eyes as much as possible.

Last year I bought my 2 grandchildren some single serving of the Horizon Organic Chocolate Milk as a treat. Since then they won't drink any other chocolate milk. The youngest was 1 year old at the time and he drank my regular Horizon Organic Milk and wouldn't drink any other milk after that!! He's 2 now and still has champagne taste! At least they like something that is good for them!!
