Ah, transitions! Transitions remind us that time is fleeting. I like to think they help us stay present in that way. Whether it’s the end of an era with diapers, ditching the crib, or headed to school, transitions force us to embrace change and hang on for the ride. I remember the day we transitioned from formula to cow’s milk with each kid. I remember it because I was buying the ultra expensive organic brand and that week I become 100’s of dollars richer, ha! I’m very picky about what my babies put in their bodies when they are little. I’m picky because it’s the only way I was taught to eat. Like mother, like daughter. We were eating organic before organic was even a thing. My mother grew our vegetables in the yard without pesticides and served up veggie burgers instead of meat at the tender age of 2. So you can imagine how picky I am about the milk my kids consume!
The milk I serve has to be produced without artificial growth hormone and tested for antibiotics. To me, it’s just not worth the risk to serve anything less. And now we live in a country that can provide just that. Hood Milk is our go-to in the grocery aisle because it checks all of my boxes. Truth be told, we don’t consume a lot of it. My kids aren’t regular milk-at-dinner type of kids. Because of this I serve them Hood Whole Milk to make sure they get the full serving of fat and protein they need for brain development. It’s shocking to me that low-fat fad diets were all the rage when we were growing up. Our poor brains! The only real benefit to skim milk is a lower calorie count and I don’t know about you but my active children can use all of the healthy calories they can get this summer! So next time you grocery shop – online or in the store – reach for Hood Milk – it really does do a body (and brain) good.
