Why Horizon? Horizon Milk review / #giveaway *Closed!*

Who needs DHA?

Most everyone! DHA is an important nutrient throughout life, yet many Americans don't get enough.1

DHA at Every Stage

Children & Adults – DHA has been shown to help support heart health throughout life.1
Infants & Children – DHA is an important nutrient for brain and eye health.1
Pregnancy & Nursing – Leading health authorities recommend that pregnant and nursing women consume adequate DHA.2
Senior Years – Studies have highlighted DHA for its possible impact on adult eye health and mental acuity.3,4

Horizon wants you to know that you no longer have to pack your kids the same lunch everyday. They have developed the Lunchbox Randomizer to help you come up with healthy lunch options your kids will love.


What is DHA?

  • DHA belongs to a category of healthy fatty acids known as Omega-3's.
  • It is a major structural fat in the brain and retina, accounting for up to 97% of the Omega-3 fats in the brain and up to 93% of the Omega-3 fats in the retina.5
  • Many scientists agree that Western diets are too low in DHA and that adequate amounts are important for brain and eye health.
  • DHA has also been shown to help support heart health.

Veggies, Veggies, Veggies

Veggies like carrot sticks, celery, cucumbers, pea pods and cherry tomatoes are all great for lunchboxes and after-school snacks. Remember, the darker the veggie, the more nutritious it tends to be. To spice veggies up, you can think about serving them with a low fat salad dressing or hummus as a dip. 

“Partnering with Dr. Greene to help parents make nutritious choices at back to school time is part of Horizon’s commitment to supporting healthy families,” said Mike Ferry, Horizon president. “...parents  ensure their family is getting the nutrition they need, but also to help educate their kids about nutritious food choices, and we are happy to help support parents in these efforts this year.”

The “Top 10 Best Back to School Foods” list is part of a “Horizon’s Toolbox for Mom” Facebook application on Horizon’s Facebook page. The toolbox contains news, offers and advice to support parents. It also has the lunchbox randomizer, which provides parents with ideas for healthy school lunches.
