I am always looking for ways to get my kids to eat healthy and for me that starts every morning with breakfast and continues through the day until dinner. One thing that I include within this regimen is to add milk into the diets of my children. Why you may ask? For me, starting your day with the necessary protein that milk provides helps you to tackle your day and start everything off right.
When my kids were young I looked into the nutrients that milk provides and was amazed to find that an 8 oz. glass of milk contains nine essential nutrients, including eight grams of high-quality protein. I have found that this protein keeps me full throughout the day so I am not eating more than I need and it is helping me stay full longer.
On top of the health benefits of milk, The “got milk?” Campaign and Fuel Up to Play 60 Breakfast Blitz program is helping to provide $250,000 in grants to local schools across the country to help give kids greater access to a healthy breakfast. Now through Feb. 17, when you buy milk you can vote to have a portion go to a local school.
Fuel Up to Play 60 is a great in-school program designed to show students how to eat right and stay active. I had never heard about this program before so I was interested to see that it has been around for some time. What I love about the idea of this campaign is that it challenges students to choose healthy foods and to learn about living an active lifestyle. It also teaches kids and their families about how being active will give families the energy to do the things they love as well as just giving you the energy to simply get through the day. I try and teach my children this on a daily basis, so I love the fact that this program reinforces this in the schools themselves.
