Horizon Chocolate Milk with DHA Omega-3 - MEGA REVIEW and GIVEAWAY

My two children are the exact opposite when it comes to their milk consumption - one will not touch it under any circumstances and the other can't get enough. The milk lover, however, will ONLY drink chocolate milk which although it's easy enough to make with a mix-in powder, it's sometimes messy for kids to make themselves (there's always that ring of chocolate powder leaving the tell-tale glass mark on the kitchen counter when they're done). The kid-friendly (and less clean-up option for mom) is to buy pre-made chocolate milk.

Horizon has just introduced it's Organic, Chocolate milk with DHA Omega-3. A yummy beverage for your kiddos that not only provides them with the goodness of milk AND great chocolate taste, plus a healthy boost of 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.

You can feel good about giving your family chocolate milk instead of plain because flavored milk is a nutrient-rich beverage. It 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. Studies have shown that flavored milk consumers did not have higher total fat or calorie intakes than non milk consumers and most importantly... Kids Love the Taste of Flavored Milk - According to 2005 USDA data, 66% of the milk chosen by children in schools is flavored!

What better way to let your kids have the yummy taste of chocolate milk while providing them with important fatty acids their brains and bodies need? For more information, visit Horizon's Chocolate Milk with DHA Omega-3, grab some Coupons or follow Horizon on Facebook.
