It's Time to Rethink Milk


When I was a child my Mum would always make me drink a glass of Milk before bed. Growing up I would be forced to drink pint loads of the stuff. But as an adult I realised that the only time I seem to drink the white stuff is in Coffee or over cereal.



As a child you're constantly told to drink Milk to help your growth, give you strong bones and healthy teeth. Because adults drink less nowadays a lot of us are just not getting enough of the important nutrients it provides to help us stay fit and well.

After thinking about this I headed down the Milk aisle on my weekly shop. I am obsessed with buying English, Organic Milk after watching a BBC documentary about the dyeing Milk industry in Britain, and how hormone pumped cows actually produce puss which ends up in the milk we drink!!! -Gross I know, but that's for another Blog.

Whilst searching the rows of semi-skinned I came across Modern Milk. A new carton of Milk, perfect for snacking, which doesn't look like it should be in a 5 year old's lunch box.

Modern Milk

Modern Milks cows are free to graze the lush, green pastures that Ireland is so well known for, reaping the benefits of a grass diet to produce high quality Milk. -It may not be British, but It's not shipped half way around the world from Hormone packed, puss producing machines!

Milk is the key provider of protein and a rich source of essential nutrients including calcium, phosphorous, potassium, riboflavin, vitamins A and B12, magnesium, carbohydrate and zinc – all essential for a healthy and balanced diet.

Naturally filling, milk is packed full of essential nutrients including protein, and it’s protein that helps fill you up. With a naturally occurring low GI level, Modern Milk also has added fibre to keep you going for longer too.

For you active types, milk has been proven to be one of the best ways to rehydrate after exercise. -So after your next workout, see how good it makes you feel!

And it comes in 4 delicious flavours, Lush Banana and Honey,Ripe Strawberry & Raspberry, Milk Chocolate with a hint of Golden Caramel and Smooth Coffee with a hint of Vanilla.

I've stocked up on a few cartons to take into work next week as healthy snacks, hopefully it'll keep me away from the crisps.
