CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR TWO WINNERS:
Mmm chocolate! Horizon Organic lowfat Chocolate Milk with DHA Omega-3 provides a great tasting and easy way to add calcium and DHA to your family¹s diet. DHA Omega-3 is an important nutrient that helps support heart, brain and eye health, and it¹s available in lowfat half gallons.
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.
Flavored Milk is a Nutrient-Rich Beverage
• 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
• Flavored milk consumers did not have higher total fat or calorie
intakes than non milk consumers
Kids Love the Taste of Flavored Milk
• According to 2005 USDA data, 66% of the milk chosen by children in
schools is flavored
Chocolate Milk is an Effective Post-Exercise Recovery Beverage
• A 2006 study showed that low fat milk was as effective at
post-exercise rehydration as sports drinks
• Because of the natural carb:pro ratio in flavored milks, low fat
chocolate milk is an effective post-exercise recovery beverage.
o The appropriate carb:pro ratio for improving endurance performance is
about 4:1 However, effective ranges can vary from 2:1 and up to 5:1.
• Consuming carbohydrate and protein post workout has been shown to:
o Enhance muscle glycogen formation
o Promote a hormonal environment that encourages muscle growth
o Promote muscle protein production
o May lessen immune-suppressive effects due of intense exercise
