Horizon Organic lowfat Chocolate Milk Review & Giveaway

The newest addition to Horizon’s extensive line of dairy products is the new Horizon Organic lowfat Chocolate Milk with DHA Omega-3. Available in lowfat half gallons, this chocolate milk provides a great tasting and easy way to add calcium and DHA to your family’s diet.

What is DHA?

DHA belongs to a category of healthy fatty acids known as Omega-3s.
Found in high concentrations in the tissues of the brain and eye, DHA Omega-3 is thought to help support healthy function in these areas. Children’s brains grow incredibly fast. In fact, the brain nearly quadruples in the first five years of life.
DHA is a key structural component of the brain, yet many young children don’t get their recommended daily amount of DHA as it is found in a limited number of food sources.
DHA has also been shown to help support heart health
The review? Here our review team to tell you

It’s no secret – kids love the taste of flavored milk!

As I expected, my girls loved this chocolate milk. Thick and creamy, it’s SO much better than adding chocolate syrup to regular milk!
According to 2005 USDA data, 66% of the milk chosen by children in schools is flavored.
Flavored milk provides the same 9 essential nutrients as unflavored milk (calcium, potassium, phosphorous, protein, vitamins A, D, B12, Riboflavin and niacin), and can help kids meet their calcium requirements.
Flavored milk consumers did not have higher total fat or calorie intakes than non milk consumers.

And adults do, too!

A 2006 study showed that low fat milk was as effective at post-exercise rehydration as sports drinks.
Because of the natural carb:pro ratio in flavored milks, low fat chocolate milk is an effective post-exercise recovery beverage.
Consuming carbohydrate and protein post workout has been shown to:
Enhance muscle glycogen formation.
Promote a hormonal environment that encourages muscle growth.
May lessen immune-suppressive effects due of intense exercise.
Horizon Organic Milk Plus DHA Omega-3 is fortified with a natural, 100% vegetarian and sustainable source of DHA – a safe, wholesome, delicious way to bring more of this important nutrient into your family’s diet. Visit http://www.horizonorganicdha.com/ to learn more!

My boys LOVE Horizon milk. Especially the chocolate and vanilla flavors. They are good for them so I am happy to buy it. They beg for it every time we go to Target!
