Chocolate Soy Milk or Almond Milk

These delicious choices give your child the sweetness they crave and also have just about as much protein as cow milk, with less fat. Additionally, soy or almond milk are great choices for kids with allergies, who are lactose intolerant, or prone to upper respiratory infections.

Almond milk in particular is a fantastic choice for smoothies or other creamy drinks.

Soy Milk Shakes

Soy milk shakes contain a lot less fat and sugar than traditional, ice-cream filled milkshakes. Plus, you and your child can have some fun making these together.
