According to the National Institute for Child Health & Development, fewer than one in 10 girls and only one in four boys ages nine to 13 are at or above their adequate intake of calcium. Further, milk only accounts for two percent of all beverages consumed outside the home. To combat this national nutritional challenge, families are invited to visit www.tetrapakusa.com to discover simple solutions to consuming calcium, even while on the go.
"Busy parents are always looking for ways to incorporate nutrition, convenience and fun into their kids' meals," said Sheniqua Little, Dairy Category Manager for Tetra Pak. "Tetra Pak helps to do this with packaging and processing solutions that make foods and beverages shelf-stable - last for several weeks - without preservatives or refrigeration required. Parents can now add more milk to their kids' diets when they are away from home. Together with our customers, we're committed to helping consumers better understand the packaging behind the products they buy and the benefits cartons can bring to their lifestyles."
Milk in shelf-stable form has the same taste as milk in the refrigerated aisle at the grocery store; it's just packaged and processed differently. Tetra Pak's shelf-stable milk boxes enable the product to retain its quality without refrigeration for up to several months from its production date. This allows families to purchase multiple units at once, while keeping unopened milk boxes for safe use in the pantry. And, consumers can always chill before opening, if they choose.
