Hello, My name is Jennifer and my family is full of Milk-A-holics!
Does your family love to drink milk? Milk is an essential part of a healthy diet and critical for development of healthy bones, teeth, muscles and blood. The Canadian food guide suggest that a healthy child should consume 2-4 servings and a healthy adult should consume 2-3 servings of milk products a day to live healthy lifestyle. In my house, we take it to the extreme! On average, my family consumes at least 2 bags of milk (4L/bag) a week! Where ever we go, milk is sure to follow.
I love that my kids prefer milk over sugary juices and pop, but in the summer time traveling with milk can be a challenge! The heat causes it to spoil quickly and my children tend to avoid drinking their milk when it is warm. Knowing how important milk is to a healthy lifestyle, I have tried many different containers, sippy cups and coolers to keep their milk cold and fresh, but not matter what I do the milk always seems to get warm. In a few weeks, we are going camping and I’m terrified of bring milk along with me! If I can’t keep it cold for a day trip, what am I going to do over the course of the entire weekend? No milk for cereal, coffee, to drink, etc? Trust me, leaving the milk at home is NOT an option!
Our Camping solution: MILK UNLEASHED
When a fridge isn’t possible, there is still away to enjoy the fresh taste of milk! Milk unleashed : a shelf safe Grade A milk that requires no refrigeration until its open. Thanks to its ultra pasteurization and the tetra pak container, all of the goodness of milk is preserved until the moment that you need it. The ultra pasteurization (pasteurization at high temperatures) is responsible for preventing the formation of bacteria and the tetra pak keeps out light, air and harmful contaminates along the milk to last longer.
Shelf Milk is REAL milk! It contains no preservatives or additives and one carton of shelf safe milk contains 8 grams of protein and 9 essential nutrients (i.e. calcium, A, D and B12, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, riboflavin, niacin and zinc). Not only is this milk extremely convenient for a busy mom on the go, but it also allows you to enjoy all of the benefits of refrigerated milk!

This camping trip, we are set! We are going to stock up on shelf milk and enjoy the good, wholesome taste of milk without worrying about it spoiling! I love how the tetra paks come in liters for our standard 2% milk which we use in cereal, coffee, and Kraft Dinner, or in single serve snack packs for the kids to help themselves to when they are thirsty. There is something for everyone!
Shelf milk is very easy to find and is located in many grocery stores in your neighborhood. Avoid the refrigerator section and as the name says, find them on the shelf alongside other non-milk products in Tetra Pak containers (such as rice or almond milk), in the baking or baby/toddler section! If your stores doesn’t carry shelf milk yet, you can always request your local retailer to order it in.
It’s hassle free, convenient and delicious! It’s MILK UNLEASHED!
