Milk is an important part of all our diets and it’s an especially great ingredient for children who may struggle to get nutrients in their diet due to food aversions or other eating issues.
Milk naturally contains 8 essential nutrients including:
• Protein – contributes to muscle growth, development and repair
• Calcium and phosphorus – for maintaining strong bones and teeth
• Iodine – contributes to healthy cognitive function
• Vitamin B5 – contributes to healthy mental performance
• Potassium – contributes to normal muscle function and to help with hydration
• Vitamin B2 and B12 – to reduce tiredness and fatigue
And now Dairy Farmers A2 Goodness + prebiotic milk comes with added prebiotics to maintain your child’s gut health, by increasing the good bugs in your gut, as part of a balanced diet.
We think kids and their parents alike will love these after dinner treats packed with all the great nutrients milk has to offer.
Chocolate and Zucchini muffins
Sweet and moist muffins that sneak in some veggies. Eat them for dessert, breakfast or lunch box treats!
1 zucchini peeled and grated
1.5 cups of self-raising flour
3/4 cup of Dairy Farmers A2 Goodness + prebiotic milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of cocoa powder

Mango Milk Ice Blocks
These four ingredient frozen treats are so simple to make and are packed with all the nutrients milk has to offer, protein and vitamin C.
4 mangos peeled and diced
1/2 cup Dairy Farmers A2 Goodness + prebiotic milk
1/2 cup of low-fat vanilla Greek yoghurt
Honey to taste
This really is too easy – place all the ingredients together in a blender (adding honey to sweeten as you like) and blend until smooth and creamy. Transfer the mixture to ice block moulds and freeze!
This one is fairly high in sugar and calories but some of our kids need all the calories they can get and we all have to treat ourselves and the kids sometimes, right?
This creamy pudding is great on its own or if you want to pack even more calories into your child’s diet you can top with whipped cream or serve over a brownie!
1/3 cup of white sugar
2.5 cups of Dairy Farmers A2 Goodness + prebiotic milk
1/4 cup of corn-starch / corn flour
3 tbsps unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons of butter
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
Mix sugar, corn-starch, cocoa powder and salt together and place in a saucepan
Add milk and bring to a boil stirring gently over a medium heat until the sauce thickens (it should coat the back of a metal spoon).
Remove from the heat and add the butter and vanilla extract.
Can be served warm (let it cool a bit first!) or chilled in the fridge.
