No, you can't have cake for breakfast.
No, you can't jump off of the back of the couch to see if you can fly.
No, we can't go to the park in the pouring rain.
And, as any mom knows, those are only the tip of the iceberg.
But as much as I'm never going to give in and let my kids eat candy and cookies for every meal of the day, I'm happy when I'm introduced to a product that makes it possible to say yes to their requests, yet still feel good about it at the same time.
That's where the newly formulated TruMoo Chocolate Milk comes in!
TruMoo, the nation's leading ready-to-serve chocolate milk, is made with fresh white milk – sourced from regional dairies around the country – pure cocoa and just enough natural sugar to make it taste great. The new formula even contains 35% less total sugar than the leading chocolate milk competitor and 40% less added sugar than its previous formula.
Considering that I knew my girls would be thrilled at the opportunity to have chocolate milk with their meal, I didn't wait to use the TruMoo store locator and find that there are a dozen stores within 5 miles of me that carry TruMoo. Talk about convenient!
Available in gallons, half gallons, quarts and single serve (10-, 12-, 14-, and 16-ounce) bottles, I brought home the half gallon and, as I suspected, two certain someones' eyes grew wide as soon as they saw it.
As the newly reformulated fat-free variety of TruMoo contains only 120 calories per serving and 6 grams of added sugar, I was happy knowing that I wasn't giving my kids a glass of something completely unhealthy.
Instead, we have found that this thick, creamy chocolate milk is excellent cold...
...as well as hot or even frozen into popsicles!
We've also heard that, as chocolate milk has double the carbohydrates and protein content, it is ideal for replenishing tired muscles — therefore there are athletes turning to TruMoo for a post-exercise recovery beverage! I haven't yet tried this, but the idea of kicking back with a glass of chocolate milk after a workout sure is appealing!
All in all, we've been excited to have been introduced to TruMoo Chocolate Milk and, while I'm still not letting my kids jump off of the back of the couch, I'm glad knowing that I can occasionally say yes to their requests for the treat... even if they don't know that it's good for them at the same time!
