YAZOO has just made the nation’s favourite milkshake even healthier and tastier for kids by launching a new and improved recipe containing natural flavours and for the banana and strawberry shakes now containing real fruit juice.
Not only is YAZOO low in fat, it also contains less than 5% added sugar and is free from artificial sweeteners and preservatives. But it’s not just what’s left out that makes YAZOO a healthier alternative to fizzy drinks, it’s packed with calcium and a good source of vitamin B. With three tasty flavours to choose from including strawberry, chocolate and banana, there is something to suit even the fussiest of eaters!
Mums can also rest easy in the knowledge that these great tasting shakes belong to an exclusive selection of drinks that meet current government legislation and can be freely sold in schools.
Why should kids drink milk?
Milk is one of the best sources of calcium which is vital for healthy growth, strong bones and teeth.
Children between the ages of 7-10 years should get at least 550mg of calcium each day and a small 200ml bottle of Yazoo provides kids with 30% of their RDA , so there’s no tastier way of getting calcium into their bodies.
Milk is an excellent source of vitamin B which is good for making red blood cells and the formation of nerves.
Milk also contains protein which is important for muscles and body strength. A small 200ml bottle of Yazoo contains about 6g of protein and can make a good contribution to the daily protein intake kids need!
Children who drink milk have comparable or lower BMIs compared to children who don’t drink it.
