Growing up I never gave much thought to what balanced nutrition looked like. I knew getting vitamins and minerals are important but I never knew how important until I had kids of my own. One thing that I realized was so important was the role of calcium for kids as well as Vitamin D in building healthy, strong bones. Knowing that calcium for kids help them build stronger bones for life, I fully made it my mission to get more calcium in their diets.
So what exactly does calcium do?
Calcium is an important nutrient that not only helps build strong bones but keeps the nerves and muscles working and the heart healthy. According to KidsHealth.org calcium helps kids build strong bones and reduces the chance of developing rickets. Rickets is a disease that softens the bones and causes bow legs, stunted growth and at times weakened muscles. So calcium for kids plays a vital role in their lifelong development of strong bones.
How can you help your child get more calcium?
Helping your children get more calcium and Vitamin D is easy. Offer them foods such as yogurt, cheese and milk! This is why we love adding Hood milk into our diet. Hood knows that every drop of milk matters to your family which is why they protect it from the moment it leaves the farm with the LightBlock Bottle®. Not only is it a reliable source of calcium and Vitamin D, it helps with proper bone growth it also provides other nutritional benefits that children need such as 8 grams of protein and 9 essential nutrients per serving.
Both my kids love Hood milk and we use it in our morning cereal, our favorite recipes or straight up in a glass! I love knowing that Hood milk is produced without artificial growth hormones. It is also tested for antibiotics meaning that the milk I am giving to my kids is healthy and nutritious.
