What’s Your Flavor?
What’s your favorite flavor of milk? Is its Mango, Almond, strawberry or popular chocolate?
Is flavored milk as nutritious as white milk?
Yes, flavored milk contains the same nine essential nutrients as white milk. Flavored milk provides calcium, protein, vitamin D, vitamin A, vitamin B12, potassium, phosphorus, riboflavin and niacin. In comparison, beverages like soda and fruit drinks provide little more than calories and sugar.
Is Chocolate Milk Good for You?
- Chocolate milk can provide you with the same nutrients found in regular cow’s milk. However, it also contains more calories and 1.5–2 times more sugar than unsweetened cow’s milk.
- Milk is rich in calcium, protein, phosphorus, and vitamin D. These nutrients are instrumental in building and maintaining strong bones and may protect your bones as you age.
- Chocolate milk offers a combination of protein and carbs that may help boost your body’s ability to recover after workouts. However, well-balanced meals or snacks are likely more nutritious and equally effective options.
- Chocolate milk is high in sugar and lactose, a protein that many people are unable to digest. Milk allergy is also common — especially in young children.
