$300 Free Dairy Products

5 Minutes for Moms is hosting a giveaway for $300 worth of organic dairy products from Horizon Organics. They have got all the dairy products we could want, like cheese, yogurt, butter and cottage cheese - and for the fun stuff they even have products like cheese strings, yogurt tubes tubes and ice cream. And of course all the Horizon Organic dairy products are certified organic and meet the strictest USDA organic standards. That means they’re produced with no antibiotics, no added growth hormones and no dangerous pesticides.

Horizon Organics contain DHA. What is DHA? DHA is found primarily in fatty fish and organ meats, and most Americans, especially kids, don’t eat enough of these foods to get the recommended amount of DHA in their diets. But it is a tricky problem to solve - the FDA and EPA recommend that young children limit their fish intake to 3 servings/week due to potential mercury contamination. According to expert Dr. Greene, “Most American kids are not getting the DHA they need. The typical three-year-old needs about 150 mg of DHA a day. On average, they are only getting about 19 mg, a tiny fraction of what they need for optimal brain growth.”
