a2 Milk® makes the perfect after school snack (for kids and moms!)

This post was sponsored by a2 Milk® as part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

Can you believe it’s almost time to go back to school? In our household, the daily routine is pretty much the same whether or not school is in: wake up, eat breakfast, Miss L goes to school/camp and we go to work, pick MIss L up from after school/camp, hang out at home, eat dinner, hang out again, go to sleep.

In looking at that quick summary, it’s no wonder I care so much about the food we eat at home.. because that truly takes up two very important slots of our family time together. And there’s not just breakfast and dinner… but those in-between snacks on weekdays and weekends too. We try our best to only keep good snacks around the house (parents have cookie temptation too!), and that rule applies to beverages as well as food. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t have our share of crazy requests!


Since we started keeping a good supply of a2 Milk® in the house, we’ve found Miss L rarely begging or asking for other beverages with her after school snacks or dinner. Instead, she’s requesting a2 Milk® almost all of the time! She really loves the taste of it and makes sure we always have a plentiful supply at home… and I love the fact that she is excited to drink real milk with her meals and snacks!


And guess who else gets to indulge in an after school snack? ME!  Thanks to a2 Milk®, I can once again enjoy all the goodness of an iced Chai Latte at home! For so long, I thought that it was the chai mixture that was causing me extreme stomach discomfort, since I was rarely drinking large quantities of milk on its own. Then, one day, it clicked that maybe the milk was the evil secret ingredient!  Since a2 Milk® only comes from specially selected a2 cows, whose milk is naturally free of the A1 protein, my tummy no longer deals with all of the discomfort caused by the A1 protein and I can drink chai lattes until the cows come home!

I hope that you really get the chance to try out a2 Milk® and see if it makes any difference in the milk consumption in your house. Every time I talk to a friend that has dairy issues or see someone complain about their tummy troubles due to milk on social media, I ask them if they’d be willing to try a2 Milk® out for a test drive. I mean, it’s worth a try, right?


I mean… I got back my afternoon chai lattes thanks to a2 Milk®… and that is worth so so much!
