Does your little one not like to drink milk? We don’t have the problem with Darah, as long as we add a few drops of chocolate syrup to it! Desperate times call for desperate measures, but I’d prefer that she drink it without the added sugar. We have mixed results when we leave it out, though, and I often find myself throwing milk down the drain. With the price of milk as high as it is (and we buy organic for Darah), this is maddening!
Kraft has just released a brand new product that can help you get more calcium to your kids, and even to you if you struggle with your calcium intake. The product is called Kraft Milk Bite Bars. They are similar to granola bars, but have a creamier taste. Each bar also contains enough calcium to equal one 8 ounce glass of milk!
Darah LOVES these and asks to eat them all the time. I think they are a terrific snack option for the middle of the day, but I wouldn’t choose it as a breakfast alternative for my kids because one bar does have 10g of sugar (that’s about 2 1/2 teaspoons…could be worse, but could be better).
I have sampled the strawberry and chocolate flavors, as well, and I agree with Darah that they are quite scrumptious, and this is coming from someone who doesn’t really like granola bars.
Look for Kraft Milk Bites in the refrigerated section of your grocery store (they are kept there because of all the milk in the bars!). Other flavors include peanut butter, oatmeal raisin and mixed berry. A box of 5 bars retails for $3.50.
