In the last couple of years, I’ve become an aficionado of shelf-stable milk, particularly organic and antibiotic-free varieties. While my children won’t drink the “white” version when it’s a carton, I’m okay with them drinking flavored varieties while they’re at school since at least they’re getting milk during the hours that they’re away from home – the way they eat and grow, they really need the extra calcium. I do wish the milk was cheaper, however! The lowest price I’ve been able to get is just over $0.50 per carton, during a great sale at Toys R Us over a year ago.
Shelf-stable milk is also great for emergencies and on-the-go activities. I’ve been known to pack some up for the kids to have for breakfast or snack when we won’t be home. While shelf-stable means it doesn’t need refrigeration, my kids do prefer the milk cold, so I always have some in the fridge and use ice-packs and a cooler bag when we’re out. And I like knowing that I have some on hand if there’s an earthquake or other emergency. (And have you read about the “earthquake swarm” we’ve been having?! If that doesn’t get you to prepare an emergency earthquake kit, I don’t know what will.)
So when the folks at Milk Unleashed offered to give me and one lucky CFO reader a Milk Unleashed prize pack, I couldn’t say no. They’ve come up with a really fun blog app, which you can use to find on-the-go games and tips to have fun family time even when you;re out on the road, tips for on-the-go snacks, and the kind of family you are when you take the Fam-On-The-Go quiz.
Email and RSS readers will need to click here to see the app.
One lucky CFO reader will win a Milk Unleashed variety pack consisting of four shelf safe milks (white and chocolate) from Hershey’s, LaLa, Horizon and Organic Valley (brands in prize pack will be randomly selected), a cow stress ball and information on shelf safe milk.
