Few Ways to Choose Milk for Kids
Choosing the right type of UHT milk for kids can be a daunting task. There are so many options at the grocery store, and they all seem to have their benefits and drawbacks.
This blog post will discuss different types of milk that you may want to consider when shopping with children in tow!
UHT (also known as long life or ultra-heat treatment) kinds of milk are heated to a temperature above 135 degrees Fahrenheit and then packaged while still hot, killing pathogens such as bacteria and mold.
In addition, this process makes them sterile and without any need for refrigeration before opening, making it the ideal type of milk for children who may not finish their bottle at mealtime!
While this might sound appealing because you don’t have to keep your kids’ bottles in the fridge after they’ve been opened, there are some drawbacks to buying UHT milk.
First off, these types of beverages tend to be more expensive than regular paste drinks due to added processing and packaging.
Secondly, these pints of milk typically do not contain the same amount of calcium and vitamin D as regular milk (they are often fortified after heating to increase the nutritional value), so it’s important not to use this as a replacement.
