Back To School…already?
Fellow Parents: The most wonderful time of the year is almost upon us. That’s right! It’s almost back to school time. What a relief amiright? Now, I know we all love our children endlessly and would do anything for the little buggers. However, lets be honest here: 3 months of my children being home all day, eating me out of house and home, 10,341 exclamations of being bored, 16, 787 times hearing the word “mom, mommy, momma” and practically draining my bank account dry from camp fees and activities – when it comes time for back to school I’m ready and willing to send them back.
While we may not all be ready for the kids to go back to school, if there’s one thing for certain about back to school time, when the kids get home from a long day of learning they’re starving. That’s why I am armed and ready for their hungry little selves with a nutritious and filling after school snack. I strongly believe in a hearty after school snack that’ll help tied them over until supper time. Besides, doing homework on an empty stomach doesn’t work! We’re getting back to school with a2 Milk® and plenty of nutritious snacks.
After School Pick-me-up
My oldest daughter will be starting kindergarten this year and I know after a long day of hard work she’ll be coming home famished. I like to set her up with after school snacks that are nutritious and protein packed. She loves berries and nuts and celery is always fun to crunch. Served with a nice glass of a2 Milk® and she’s all set for an afternoon pick-me-up! She likes to have her after school snack on her cool lap tray while watching her favorite cartoon.
The Real Milk Difference
Unfortunately, tummy troubles from milk runs in our family. A few of us have tried milk alternatives but nothing is as refreshing as a nice cold glass of milk. a2 Milk® contains approximately 6x the amount of calcium as soy beverages, approximately 8x the protein of almond beverages and approximately 6x the potassium levels of rice beverages. I feel good knowing that my kids and I are getting a healthy dose of nutrients from a2 Milk®.
Did you know that the A1 protein is the culprit behind many people’s discomfort after consuming dairy? Currently, the A1 protein is in all conventional and organic milks on the U.S. market. a2 Milk® only comes from specially selected a2 cows, whose milk is naturally free of the A1 protein. That’s a great after school beverage!
Say Goodbye to Tummy Troubles!
Thankfully, the a2 Milk® Company™ has partnered with U.S. family dairy farmers in upstate New York and the Midwest to expand the a2 herd. Say goodbye to tummy troubles. You can find a2 Milk® at a store near you in the dairy section. I pickup mine from Ralphs!
