Did you know that June is Dairy Month? For over 70 years June has been the month to celebrate all things milk and to remind people about the importance of getting more protein and calcium-rich dairy products into their diets – specially for little ones!
In the warmer months parents usually worry about carrying dairy products on the go because they need to remain chilled. With shelf safe milk parents have nothing to worry about and they can pack all the milk they want to take with them to the beach, the park or any summer outings their family is planning.
The single-serving milk boxes are similar to juice boxes and can be stored in the pantry for up to six months without refrigeration. Definitively convenient for on-the-go families and way healthier than packing a bunch of sugary juice packs for the kids!
According to the Journal of Pediatrics, dairy and calcium intakes are inadequate in most four- to 18-year-olds. A carton (237 ml.) of shelf safe milk has eight grams of protein and nine essential nutrients. With shelf safe milk it’s easy to substitute a healthy beverage choice when you’re away from home, anytime, anywhere.
