Growing up, we all know how milk is a crucial part of it. It's one of the most recommended drink for children aside from water. If I could have my way, I would like my own kids to drink milk their whole lives. That's why as small as they are now, I'm already instilling the healthy habit of drink milk everyday. :)


Role as parents

Children live an active lifestyle and are at a point of development. As moms, we should make sure that they get the proper nutrients that their body needs to grow up healthy and build strong bones. Aside from eating the right kind of food, drinking milk should be a top priority. 

My son Asher is 6 years old now and I'm thankful that he loves drinking milk. Whether it's just on its own or with cereal, he enjoys it. Main reason why I make sure we always have milk stocked up at home. :)




Benefits of milk intake

Drinking milk everyday is a rich source of calcium. It's one of the most common things we know that benefits the body and aside from that, it is important for growing teeth, a good source of protein, and provides vitamins. So, if your kid is a picky/fussy eater, never forget to give them milk, so it can fill the  nutrient gaps in their diet. :) 

What if it's a struggle making them drink milk?

In any case that your child doesn't drink as much milk as they should, you can always mix milk in their favorite food, like mashed potato, pasta, gratin, milk based desserts, etc. This way, they still get the proper nutrition too!

Selecta Fortied Milk

For kids 6-9 years old, Selecta Fortified Milk completes 100% of the daily energy and nutrient requirement through the vitamins and minerals added in their milk. Since it is also 100% fortified, it's infused with more vitamins, like Vitamin A, B1, B2, Niacin(helps process sugar and fatty acid in the body), B6, B12, D3, and a high source of calcium. It has basically got you covered! :) My son Asher enjoys drinking Selecta because he says it tastes like ice cream. ^_^

As a mom, I believe that passing down healthy eating habits to our children is one of the most important parts of growing up. It's something that they carry with them until adulthood and can lead them to also living a healthy and happy life. :)

Let's guide our children to make good and healthy choices. Even if it's as simple as drinking milk.
