I’ve mentioned Ovaltine a few times in the past and I have nothing but good things to say about it. First of all, it’s tasty! Second, it’s filled with vitamins and minerals, and third, it’s chocolate for goodness sake! Everyone knows that it’s a healthier way to drink your “chocolate milk” and in my opinion, a tastier one. However, there are a few other benefits to Ovaltine that even I didn’t think about!
“Honey, please drink your milk”! I think all mom’s have said this about a bazillion times, and with any luck you may have coaxed them into drinking half of the glass. With a few scoops of Ovaltine, you can kiss that phrase goodbye, because the kids will sip it right down with no problem and they’ll even ask for more!
Try Ovaltine with Fat Free Milk! Mixing Ovaltine with Fat-Free Milk (170 calories per serving) will give you 35% of your calcium for the day, along with Vitamin A, C, E, iron and B vitamins. You’ll also be getting Vitamin D from the milk. Considering 3 out of 4 Americans don’t get enough Vitamin D, this is a tasty way to get what your body needs!
It’s Chocolate! Chocolate has it’s own benefits (well, I like to think it does) and if your looking for a healthier way to get your chocolate fix, then allow Ovaltine to be your guide! Often times I crave chocolate at night and a glass of Ovaltine always does the trick!
It’s Healthier for Santa too! My friend Sara over at “Deal”icious Mom pointed out last week that Santa may be tired of “boring old milk”! I think she may be right and (ahem), Santa could perhaps use a healthier option, don’t you think?
And you thought it was just chocolate milk!
