Did you know that 1 in 5 kids in the United States face hunger? Did you also realize that September is Hunger Action Month? Milk Life Fuertes con Leche, has partnered with Feeding America in Proyecto Alimento Leche Para America to help donate milk to those who need it most.
Hunger Action Month
I often remind my kids that we do not have to look far to find children in need. A quick look around in certain areas is a certain reminder of this harsh reality. And as children head back to school and cooler weather activities come into play, we work to fall back into a routine. One such item on the list is breakfast! Everyone needs to start their day off right! Milk and Quaker are just the ingredients we need to kick off our day.
Oatmeal and Strawberry Frappe
- 1 packet of Quaker® instant oatmeal original flavor
- 1 cup of strawberry ice cream
- 2 cups of milk
- 1 tsp honey
- 1 cup chopped strawberries
- Mix all ingredients in a blender until a smooth and creamy consistency.
- Serve chilled. Enjoy!
So easy, right?! You can have a delicious breakfast in no time with just a little Quaker Oats and milk. And milk is such a key ingredient in many family recipes.
From making breakfast tacos to baking pies, the high-quality protein available in each 8 oz. glass of milk can help fight the cravings and keep us full longer.
With 8 grams of high-quality protein in every 8 ounces, milk is an easy, simple and delicious way to power up every day.
Basically meaning, simply by starting your morning with protein at breakfast, you can help stay fuller longer and stick to your healthy eating goals.
Hispanic Heritage Month
September also marks the kick off to Hispanic Heritage Month. As we celebrate our heritage, we can also work together to help end hunger in our own Latino communities. The Food Project: Milk for America invites you to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month by helping needy families to have access to nutrient-rich milk . Visit LecheParaAmerica.com to make a small donation to Feeding America. This act of giving can put milk onto the tables of families in need.
