Got Teenagers? I hope you've Got Milk

This post is brought to you by got milk? Drink to a brighter future.

I've got 2 very active teenagers.
Between school, sports and friends,
 they are busy and constantly hungry or thirsty when they're home.
I try to stock the kitchen with simple, healthy items that are easy to grab on the go.
Things that are full of nutrients and protein, to fuel them up and keep them going.

They guzzle milk by the gallon, always have and I hope they always will.
Along with the nutritional benefits of being full of calcium, potassium, and vitamin D , 
it helps keep their bones and teeth strong, aids in better sleep and prevents the risk of cavities. 

Evidently my children are far too "busy" to get a glass for their milk.
I try not to nag too much, 
I want them to drink milk, a lot of milk... 
but really, right out of the container?!

Now that I've Got Milk,
why not make it so they each get their own?
If they are going to drink right from the jug,
at least they won't be spreading germs.

Fun cow stickers make it clear -
smart MOO-ve, don't you think?

I printed up a "heard" so I'm always ready.

With the holidays upon us and a special guest scheduled to arrive, 
I didn't want any confusion about the "owner" of his milk..

Santa, this one is for you!

If "chronic carton chugging" is an issue in your house,
 I've got printable labels ready for you too!
Click on links below.

These print perfectly on sheets of twelve 2.5" circle stickers
(available at most office supply stores or Paper Source)
or they can be printed on card stock and cut out with a circle punch, 
then attach to milk as a tag.

  1. So cute, my kids are ages 3 & 1.5 and they would love this!!

  2. super cute! i see this in my future with my boy!

  3. So cute! I think this is one of those "pick your battles" moments as a mom you know? They are going to drink straight from the container anyway so you might as well roll with it.

  4. My two boys use to chug milk from the carton all the time! I'm not a milk drinker so it didn't bother me much but what a clever idea! I love it.

  5. Ahhh...thank you! Great idea!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I am thrilled for each one!
