This post was sponsored by a2 Milk® as part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.
My daughter will be starting Kindergarten this school year. Honestly, I am sentimental but at the same time excited for her as she is set to explore a whole new different world. Along with this, there will be a lot of adjustments in our family routine. I know it is going to be tough to drag her out of bed and have breakfast.
Breakfast is an important meal of the day especially for school kids. According to a study, kids who eat breakfast have better concentration during school hours than kids who skip the morning meal and have more energy for playtime. In addition, eating breakfast every day can even improve mental performance and math scores.
And so with that, a2 Milk® will definitely be a part of our everyday routine starting with her cereals, off to her lunchbox, after-school snack and before bedtime drink. I was able to observe that she has grown taller and healthier over the past few months, and where else can I attribute it but with drinking milk.
a2 Milk® and Back to School
We love incorporating a2 Milk® in our smoothies this Summer and using it for cereal during breakfast. In fact I would always grab a carton at the nearest Whole Foods which carries different variants-0% Fat Free, Whole Milk, 1% Low Fat and 2% Reduced Fat. Now that schooldays are coming, for sure a2 Milk® will be a regular mainstay in our fridge.
Just for an interesting fact, a2 Milk® contains approximately 6x the amount of calcium as soy beverages, 8x the protein of almond beverages and approximately 6x the potassium levels of rice beverages and with this, a2 Milk® makes the perfect back to school treat for kids minus the tummy trouble!
When I became an a2 Milk® Brand Ambassador a few months back, I discovered The Milk That Loves My Tummy. I haven’t been a milk fan just because of an unconfirmed lactose intolerant condition. In fact in an independent study, it showed that 1 in 4 Americans experience discomfort after drinking milk. Yet surprisingly, only a small number (roughly around 5-7%) of the population has been clinically diagnosed with a lactose intolerance medical condition.
When I discovered a2 Milk®, I was able to enjoy milk without any tummy trouble or or post-dairy digestive discomfort symptoms.
a2 Milk® and the a2 Milk Company™
First of all, let me say that a2 Milk® is real milk! Yes, you read it right. a2 Milk® is the real replacement to overly processed alternatives. Now, we don’t have to compromise the taste and nutrition of milk by substituting it to nut or other bean based beverages. a2 Milk® as the name itself, comes only from specially selected a2 cows (whose milk is naturally free of the A1 protein). The a2 Milk® Company™ and U.S. family dairy farmers in upstate New York and the Midwest joined together to expand the a2 herd.
So why wait? Why don’t you go ahead and locate the nearest store to buy a2 Milk® and make it a part of you back-to-school shopping list!
