The perfect snack for kids

Childhood is pretty much non-stop, which is why snack time is a really important pit-stop for young speed-demons. And without question, the best way for kids to refuel is with plenty of protein. Something every glass of milk contains a lot of—8 grams to be specific. The natural protein found in milks helps build and repair muscles and healthy bones. Milk is also the top food source of calcium, vitamin D and potassium – three nutrients most of us don’t get enough of.

The benefits of milk for kids are beyond dispute, but the challenge is getting them to slow down long enough to enjoy it. One sure-fire way to do it with snacks. But not just any snacks. You want snacks like these—delicious and simple to make treats that either incorporate milk or go beautifully with a nice cold glass of it. They’re guaranteed to help your kids power-up in a way that everyone can feel good about.
