Boo Struck Candy Corn SmoothieThe Hood Answer Mom, Elizabeth M. Ward, M.S., R.D.
Halloween is upon us! As children prep early for trick-or-treating, parents are ready to focus on ways to get through the sugar-fueled season.
This time of year can be tricky for parents whose children are focused on the treats Halloween brings. With all the celebrating, it can be difficult to get kids to eat right, especially as the big day approaches, and for days afterwards, too.
You don’t have to be afraid to offer your child this delicious Candy Corn Smoothie as a snack or dessert! It’s made with Hood Boo Struck Vanilla Reduced Fat Milk, a new, orange-colored milk available for a limited time only this Halloween season. Boo Struck is creamy and delicious, and it’s a lot of fun to drink on its own or in a dessert.
With a name like Candy Corn Smoothie, you’d think this drink was full of corn syrup, but there is none to be found here. Boo Struck is made without high fructose corn syrup, and like all Hood Milk, comes from farmers who pledge not to use artificial growth hormones.
Candy Corn Smoothie is a treat without the trick. Each smoothie supplies more than a serving of fruit, which is responsible for the majority of its sweetness, and for all of its fiber, which helps to keep kids satisfied for longer. Additionally, there’s nearly 25 percent of your child’s daily Calcium needs in this fun beverage, and half of their daily requirements for Vitamin C, which helps ward off colds and flu.
