"As a parent, I am all too familiar with the struggle to get kids to eat healthfully," said Smart Balance Senior Vice President and General Manager John Becker. "Smart Balance ® Kids Milks provide wholesome milk and a blend of nutrients to give kids a strong nutritional foundation during critical stages of development."
All varieties of Smart Balance ® Kids Milks offer calcium and extra Vitamin D to support strong bones; as well as DHA and EPA Omega-3s to help support brain and heart health with two glasses a day. The milks are produced from cows with no artificial growth hormones.Transitions Whole Milk is the first milk of its kind with a nutrient blend containing iron, for healthy growth and development, and prebiotics, which support digestion with two glasses a day. The milk is formulated for children aged 12-24 months, for whom many pediatricians recommend whole milk as they transition from breast milk or formula. Smart Balance ® Kids Reduced Fat and Chocolate Low Fat Milks have vitamins C and E to support active, growing kids ages 2 and up, for whom many pediatricians recommend switching to low or reduced fat milks.
