Here are some helpful tips about your child’s nutrition.

When your child helps out in preparing his glass of milk, he will enjoy having it more!

By making milk the beverage of choice for the entire family, you would be encouraging your child to have it more regularly.

Milk provides your child with the energy he needs to kickstart his day, the high quality protein to help his muscle grow as well as essential vitamins and minerals for the proper development of his brain, bones and teeth.

In addition to its great creamy taste, when your child consumes daily the recommended 2 glasses of milk, it’s contributing to 25% of his daily hydration needs.

Make time for breakfast every day; it enhances your kids’ mental and physical performance. A bowl of whole grain cereal with milk and chopped fruits is one idea! Be creative.

Hydration is important; encourage your kids to have 8 glasses of water every day.

Early to bed, early to rise, makes the kids healthy and wise. Make sure your kids are getting at least 10 hours of sleep every day.

Teach your kids to take care of their teeth; healthy teeth will make them smile more confidently. Encourage your kids to brush their teeth twice a day.
