Horizon Organic Lowfat Choc. Milk w/DHA Omega-3 Giveaway

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 family's diet. DHA Omega-3 is an important nutrient that helps support heart, brain and eye health, and it's 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.

My Kids like White milk but will drink more milk if it's flavored. My son likes strawberry but my daughter loves chocolate. I would much rather them drink more milk so, I allow flavored milk. And did you know?

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 requirements.
~ 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.
- 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:
-Enhance muscle glycogen formation
- Promote a hormonal environment that encourages muscle growth
- Promote muscle protein production
- May lessen immune-suppressive effects due of intense exercise
