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.
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.
