It probably won’t surprise you that breakfast is the most skipped meal of the day. Whether because of the hectic buzz of the morning not allowing for time or simply because people are not hungry, breakfast is often left out of morning routines for many families. This matters, especially for children.
Simply adding a glass of milk to your family’s morning routine provides a quick, easy, and inexpensive source of nutrients and fuel that children need to kick start their day. Think about milk as “kid coffee.” Much like many parents need a cup of coffee to wake up their bodies and minds, children need milk to do the same. In fact, milk provides:
- B-vitamins for energy
- Bone-building calcium and vitamin D
- High-quality protein for strong muscles
- 9 essential nutrients
For only around 25 cents per glass, milk provides the nutrients children need to jumpstart their day to be their best selves, which is less than most drinks on your local coffee shop’s menu!
Whether it’s flavored, lactose-free, warm, or cold, start your day by pouring real dairy milk into a mug and cheering to the day ahead. And while you’re at it, add milk to your morning brew to give yourself an extra boost of nutrition and energy!
