Tips for a Memorable Summer Vacation
When it comes to enjoying a fun-filled summer vacation with the kids, it’s important to keep nutrition and safety in mind. Before heading out for camping, to the nearest theme park or even to your very own backyard, be sure your kids are filled with a nutritious breakfast to keep them happy and energized throughout the day! In each and every glass of TruMoo® Lowfat Chocolate Milk, you’ll find eight essential nutrients, including protein, calcium and vitamins A and D, that help give both the kiddos and yourself the fuel to have even more fun!
Recently, we posed a question on our Facebook Timeline asking what family vacation locations you were most excited about. Here are a couple of the most popular responses and a few tips on how to keep your kids safe, keep your nutrition in check and most of all – have fun!
Family Camping Trips
Camping trips can be a great way to reconnect your kids with nature – and a great teaching opportunity for you! Here are some quick tips to keep in mind as you’re showing the kiddos the ropes on pitching tents and walking trails.
- Safety: Planning ahead can be a key safety measure. Be sure to bring a first aid kit, flashlight, extra clothes and insect repellent.
- Nutrition: Let’s face it - s’mores are bound to happen at nightfall! Try to include more fruits and veggies throughout the day to balance out the sweet treats. If you’re good with an open flame, breakfast can be a protein-packed meal of eggs and turkey bacon to power you up for your daily activities.
This classic destination is a staple of family vacations - the theme park. No matter what park you choose, they all have one thing in common – a whirlwind of rides! These tips will keep you safe, full and happy while riding coaster after coaster.
- Planning: To keep costs lower this summer, look for online discounts. And if possible, schedule your trip for the weekdays. With shorter lines, you can get more for your money.
- Nutrition: Food can get expensive at a theme park. Try filling up your kids with a nutritious breakfast before heading out - like TruMoo Chocolate Milk and a veggie and egg breakfast burrito! TruMoo Chocolate Milk contains no high fructose corn syrup. Instead, it’s made with pure cocoa, making it a delicious breakfast option the whole family will love! Check out our handy menu builder for more easy breakfast and snack ideas to whip up before you head out.
No matter what vacation destination you choose, keep the whole family involved in the planning. Let everyone offer their ideas and help make the list of what to pack. A quick planning party before you go would be an awesome way to get the family excited and keep everything organized. Grab a nutritious snack, a pad of paper and a pen - then get to planning!
Remember, every glass of TruMoo Chocolate Milk has to pass our Five Point Purity Checklist, meaning each ounce is made with fresh, pure milk from your local dairy. And if that’s not enough, it’s filled with a delicious taste kids love and the essential nutrients you’ll love to share!
