Mornings are hectic in my house. Between finishing up forgotten homework and making sure everyone has taken a recent shower, breakfast can sometimes be an afterthought. I know that breakfast is important, especially before the kids head off to school for a full day of learning, so I have made it a point to find easy and healthy breakfasts ideas that can either be made ahead, prepared in just a few minutes, or some of my favorite AE Dairy products that you can grab-and-go.

AE Chocolate milk is a gourmet blend of cocoas and maybe that’s why some think it is only an indulgence, but there’s no high fructose corn syrup. AE Dairy actually uses less sugar to accentuate those gourmet European cocoas. Did you know that milk, including chocolate milk, provides 9 essential nutrients? These nutrients are difficult to replace in our kids’ diet. A 2010 In-School Flavored Milk study even shows that to replace those essential nutrients from milk, 3-4 food items were required and more calories and fat were added! Children who drink chocolate milk have better quality diets, do not consume more sugar, fat and calories and do not have a higher body mass index. (source)
Chocolate milk is delicious, but nothing beats AE chocolate milk (And I’m not just saying that. I’ve been drinking AE Chocolate milk since I was a little girl!) The specialty blend of cocoas has a lot to do with the delicious taste of AE Chocolate milk, but the AE Dairy company has an 86 year track record as a family owned and operated dairy with a commitment to excellence. They create these premium products in small batches and only from fresh milk from family farms in Iowa. THIS is what makes AE Chocolate milk the best.
