Our household is very divided when it comes to our love of dairy. My son and I love dairy. It’s definitely a part of our daily breakfast and snacks. My husband and daughter on the other hand, not so much.
As a mom, I want my daughter to have the nutrition that comes from dairy, so I need to get creative and sneak it in here and there. She loves smoothies and the addition of Hood Calorie Countdown in her smoothie went over wonderfully!
Hood Calorie Countdown products are readily available at Walmart and other local retailers. So I headed over to Walmart to pick up all the ingredients. It was so easy to just grab everything I needed in one place.
In just 1 cup of Calorie Countdown, you get 25% of your Daily Value for calcium and 15% for Vitamin D (based on a 2,000 calorie diet). I feel great about incorporating this milky smooth dairy beverage into our diet because it has 42% fewer calories, 75% less sugar, and 67% fewer carbohydrates than milk.
If you are trying to calculate calories per meal Here is a great resource.
My son absolutely loved the Hood Calorie Countdown Chocolate dairy beverage. It was so creamy and delicious. It makes this mom happy because it has so many nutritional benefits and is easy to incorporate into a healthier lifestyle.
Because Hood is the leader in high-quality dairy products, I can trust serving Calorie Countdown to my family. It is offered in Whole, 2%, Fat-Free, and chocolate-flavored varieties.
