Easy Breakfast Milk by Kids Eat in Color
Jennifer wrote in her @kids.eat.in.color post, “I serve little m milk for breakfast—with fruits and veggies on the side—several times a week. @HealthyHeight can help mix that up and add in more protein without much added sugar.”
Not only does her child love chocolate milk, but Healthy Height chocolate milk balances out the fruits and veggies with much-needed protein and fat. Jennifer appreciates the added nutrients because “that fat makes it so that he can absorb the fat-soluble vitamins, like the vitamin A in the carrots.”
Jennifer reminds parents, “One thing you do want to keep in mind, is that you don't want kids ONLY drinking milk for all meals. So, for my kids, I serve milk no more than twice per day. All of the other meals and snacks are served with water. They don't have to eat what I serve at those meals and snacks, but they do need to sit at the table. It's okay to say 'Milk is not being served at this meal, but it will be served with dinner.'”
