In this months Goodie box from Goodies Co. was the above box of milk. Yes, a milk box. Like the ever present juice boxes, this product is trying to appeal to your children as a drink to be chanted for and screamed over at soccer games and meals. Unlike those other drink choices, as long as your child does not have allergies that make it otherwise, this is an amazingly healthy choice for them, and you as well. If you are not on a non-dairy health food kick, read on.
Remember when you were a kid who had successfully convinced your parents to buy that great sugared cereal you saw on TV instead of the Kix, Cheerios, and Grape Nuts they tried to get you to like? If you were like me one of the greatest pleasures of the experience was the sweet sugar high you got not from the cereal itself, but drinking that amazing mixture of milk, sugar, and flavor that was left in the bowl when the cereal was gone. Cow Wow is based on the nearly universal appeal of that wonderfully flavored milk.
Cow Wow's Fruity Trudy is designed to taste like the milk left in the bowl after eating a fruit-flavored cereal like Fruity Pebbles or Fruit Loops, and it definitely does. I let the kids try it, but ended up drinking most of it myself. I guess sometimes I'm just a kid at heart, and this one took me back to saturday mornings eating feral in front of cartoons.
At 170 calories and 12 grams of protein you could definitely do worse in drink choices for your kids, especially given the quality ingredients used in this product. Since it is an organic product it obviously is not going to be cheap, but the quality makes this a must buy for my kids. You can find it online here.
