Horizon Organic Lowfat Chocolate Milk Giveaway

Getting kids to drink their milk can sometimes be difficult. William, 5, used to LOVE regular ole plain (organic) milk. I never ever added anything. When he was a toddler he would have drank it all day long if I let him. Then somewhere between the ages of 3 and 4 he changed his mind and decided that he did not like milk. At all. So I thought, what kid doesn't like chocolate milk, right? I bought some organic chocolate syrup and started mixing that in. (That famous brand name syrup you are thinking of is loaded with high fructose corn syrup). Much to my delight he really liked the chocolate milk and I was happy that he was getting in his daily cup of milk. Well as a mom of 4 boys, I think it is obvious that I am crazy busy. Sitting there stirring together chocolate milk with twin 2 year olds tugging on each of my legs is no way to start a morning. Thankfully there are companies like Horizon who have a solution for me.

New from Horizon is their Organic lowfat Chocolate Milk with DHA Omega-3. That's right, organic chocolate milk already mixed together for me. Yay! Wait, what the heck is DHA Omega-3 you ask?

  • DHA Omega-3 is an important nutrient that helps support heart, brain and eye health.
  • DHA provides a nutritional boost for children's growing minds and bodies.
  • 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.
To learn more about DHA, visit http://www.horizonorganicdha.com/.

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.

I love that there is this super convenient option from Horizon now. I know it can save me a lot of time and some aggravation as well. And since it is organic you can rest assured that there is no high fructose corn syrup or other "junk" in there. I have yet to find a non-organic chocolate milk (premade) or non-organic chocolate syrup that is free of HFCS.

Horizon sent me some coupons so I could pick up a free half gallon of their Organic lowfat Chocolate Milk with DHA Omega-3 at my local grocery store to try out. There are two supermarkets in my town, Stop & Shop and Big Y, and sadly neither of them carry any Horizon milk. Strangely, Stop & Shop has the cases of individual milk boxes (for lunch boxes) but they don't carry any half gallon sizes. I was very disappointed because I really wanted to test this out. I am not giving up yet and will continue to check other stores when possible.
