If there’s one very important nutrient that kids need to have in their diet, it’s DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) – a type of Omega-3 fatty acid that’s known to help promote heart, brain and eye health. DHA exists naturally in breast milk and is found primarily in fatty fish.
According to pediatrician Dr. Alan Greene, “Most American kids are not getting the DHA they need. The typical three-year-old needs about 150 mg of DHA a day. On average, they are only getting about 19 mg, a tiny fraction of what they need for optimal brain growth.” Although fish is a good source of DHA, the FDA and EPA recommend that young children limit their fish intake to 3 servings/week due to potential mercury contamination.
Horizon Organic– producer of high-quality, great-tasting organic dairy products, provides us and our kids important nutrients like calcium and DHA in our daily diet.
We love Horizon Organic milk in our house! In fact, it’s the recommended organic milk brand by my kids’ pediatrician. So we were happy to test out the new Horizon Organic® Lowfat Chocolate Milk Plus DHA Omega-3. This stuff tastes really great! 🙂
The chocolate taste is just what my kids want (the taste is very natural) and provides my whole family the calcium and DHA we need.
Check it out at your leading grocery store’s dairy aisle! Available in lowfat half gallons and quarts.
