One of my kids favorite snacks is when I make them chocolate covered strawberries. Since this past weekend was Mother’s Day, I made a quite a few batches for different homes and gifts. Of course, I saved some for my kids because it is a sweet treat that has lots of antioxidants when you use the right kind of chocolate. Plus, the berries that turn out not so cute can be used in my Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shake recipe made with TruMoo Calcium Plus.
My kids love TruMoo milk and enjoy every flavor they produce including seasonal varieties. As a mom I especially love when dairy products are not only tasty but jam-packed with vital nutrients. TruMoo Calcium Plus contains 50% more calcium per serving than regular low-fat white milk. Plus, like other TruMoo products, it contains no artificial growth harmones, and it has no high-fructose corn syrup which is a major plus!
I know I certainly never feel guilty allowing my kids to drink TruMoo Calcium Plus because it is a great way to help strengthen their bones, and meet their nutritional needs. Plus, I even love it, and it goes great in smoothies, and shakes like this featured Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shake which is jam-packed with nutrition despite the name.
Since I love my kids to eat a well balanced diet, giving them drinks like TruMoo are important. They are picky eaters and sometimes refuse certain veggies, and cheese so knowing that they can get their calcium needs from TruMoo Calcium Plus without all the extra junk is ideal!
