I know I am a strange duck as I absolutely love going grocery shopping! I like to fondle the fruits, weigh vegetables and pick over the sales specials to create yummy treats for my family. Today, the Pick ‘N Save produce manager pulled a new case of green beans out for me instead of me clearing out her shelf display. She knew I was on a mission for canning and wanted to make sure I had the freshest stock. Despite that, I often save the best for last: the dairy aisle!
Ever since I was a little kid, there was nothing more refreshing than a glass of ice cold milk. I didn’t realize how nutritious it was until I was a 40-year-old adult being told that I had the bone density of a 20-year-old. The fact is, milk’s nutrients are hard to replace. If I didn’t have milk in my childhood diet, it would have been difficult to get enough of nutrients I needed to protect my bones in several car accidents, and now? Decades of research and hundreds of studies support the benefits of drinking milk! Most people don’t realize bone density stops being built at a certain point and then declines the rest of their life.
It breaks my heart when I volunteer at Miss Sarah’s school because I witness first-hand the fact that kids are drinking beverages other than milk, which is sad because that means many kids are missing out on a good source of protein and aren’t getting enough of milk’s nutrients; like calcium, potassium and vitamin D, that they need to grow. They are already being shorted on Vitamin D if their parents are like me: I lather Miss Sarah in sunscreen everyday to protect her skin and she can’t get Vitamin D from the sun.
Now I could talk on and on about how milk is a good source of protein, and lots of necessary minerals but this picture should pretty much sum it up:
Moms and Dads can feel good about serving milk to their family, knowing the wholesome beverage is remarkably simple and contains just milk, vitamin A and vitamin D as you can tell with only 3 ingredients! I suggest you check out MilkLife.com for more content and recipes and to follow Milk Life on Facebook , Twitter , Pinterest and Instagram to learn more if I haven’t convinced you.
Now, here is where we turn you into a hero: I have the perfect cookie recipe that you can whip up to go with a nutritious glass of milk and get the kiddos off to a healthy start for their day or a quick power up after school.
What child wouldn’t be excited to be offered two cookies for breakfast? They don’t need to know that these are basically a granola bar, but in a cookie shape. When paired with an 8 ounce glass of milk, you are certainly saving the day!
So, what are you waiting for? Pop your favorite mug in the freezer, run to your local store and pick up a gallon of this wholesome treat, and indulge your kids in “cookies” for breakfast!
