Chocolate Milk: A Little Flavour and a Bundle of Nutrients!
Milk contains a unique combination of nutrients important for growth and development in kids, and for optimal health and disease prevention in adults.
While some like the taste of unflavored milk, others prefer flavored milk. With the childhood obesity crisis, many people have considered flavored milk unsuitable for kids due to high sugar content. Reducing the sugar intake from foods like sodas and candy makes more sense than reducing sugars from nutrient-rich foods like milk.
Why Flavored Milk
Flavoredmilk contains the same nutrients as white milk, yet contributes only a minor amount of added sugar to child’s diets. Soft drinks and non-carbonated sweetened beverages contribute 40% of the added sugars to the diets of children, whereas flavoured milk contributes only about 4% (~0.8 tsp) of added sugars.
Daily Calcium Intake
These days, kids are not very fond of having white milk and thus they fail to meet the daily calcium requirement that is essential for bone development and growth. Flavored milk is a low-cost, palatable beverage choice to help close the gap between calcium needs and intake.
Since many of the essential milk nutrients are difficult to replace, skipping just one serving of milk a day can put kids at nutritional disadvantage. Therefore, a study was conducted among kids of different age group and it was found that children prefer chocolate milk over the usual white milk and consume more overall, with less milk wastage.
Nutrients in Flavored Milk
Flavoured milk has all of the major nutrients found in unflavored milk – calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, protein, riboflavin, niacin and vitamins A, B12 and D and contributes only 3% of added sugars in the diets of children 2 – 18 years.
At a critical time when bones are being formed, only one in ten school-age girls and four in ten boys meet their calcium requirements. Those who compromise their bone health put themselves at risk for developing osteoporosis later in life. Verka Pio flavored milks give children another choice of meeting their calcium requirements and satisfying their taste buds.
