Let kids refuel by giving them their favourite snacks with healthy ingredients they won’t even notice.



After a long day at school, kids need a chance to unwind. Often that down time involves physical activity, and a nutritious snack is the perfect way to make sure kids are ready to take on their free time with gusto then recharge to keep going until bedtime.

A busy schedule may make the temptation for unhealthy convenience snacks strong but it’s actually easier than you think to refuel with good-for-you foods on the go. One simple trick: use kids’ favourite ingredients in unexpected ways.

For example, these Chocolate Banana Muffins show that a glass isn’t the only way to enjoy chocolate milk. When you use a nutrient-rich option like TruMoo Chocolate Milk, you can feel great about serving up these muffins to your whole family. It’s a nutritious and delicious treat for adults and kids alike, whether you enjoy it on its own – served cold or hot – or as an addition to recipes.

It’s made with fresh, white milk sourced from local dairies, pure cocoa and just enough natural sugar to make it taste great. It’s a nutritious and delicious treat for adults and kids alike. What’s more, there’s no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial growth hormones and no GMO ingredients.

“The protein, vitamins, minerals and great taste in TruMoo Chocolate Milk can help kids meet their nutritional score in every pour,” says American dietitian Leslie Bonci .

“The protein and carbohydrates included is the perfect ratio to help replace electrolytes lost after engaging in after-school sports.”
