Borden Milk: Giveaway

While my daughters tend to be picky eaters, I am so glad that I have had no problem getting them to drink milk.  We serve milk at breakfast, lunch and dinner (with the occasional chocolate milk, of course) and the girls just love it.  Recently, there has been a push to remove chocolate and other flavored milks from school menus.  But, a study encompassing 700 days and 58 elementary and secondary schools showed that when low fat chocolate milk was not available, kids avoided milk altogether and reached for a substitute.  The dramatic reduction (35% on average) of milk consumption in turn reduced the number of nutrients consumed by the kids.

Did you know that chocolate milk contains the same 9 essential nutrients as white milk?  Since my kids love their chocolate milk, I am happy to hear this!  Check out Borden’s website for other great facts about milk and what it can do for your little one’s growing body.


To encourage your family to drink more milk, Borden’s has generously donated this fabulous prize pack to one lucky reader:

Two months of free milk (via eight one- gallon coupons), 2 Borden T-Shirts, 2 Borden growth charts, 4 Borden cups, and 2 Borden grocery pads!!
