July is Picnic Month

July is Picnic Month…and More!
Tips and Ideas for Fun Family Activities…summer is here! The kids are out of school and looking for adventure.   When the family is out and about, think about taking along some healthy snacks so you don’t load up on empty calories.  Tetra Pak, known for its shelf safe, lightweight packaging has compiled some ideas for family road trips, picnics, healthy snacks and family friendly games.  It’s all part of the Milk Unleashed  educational campaign to let people know that shelf safe milk is a great solution when you’re on the go. 
                Shelf safe milk is real Grade A milk that doesn’t require refrigeration until it’s opened (no preservatives added).  Single-serving cartons can be stored in the pantry for up to six months without refrigeration.  It’s a convenient and healthy way to get the nutrition from calcium-rich milk on car trips, while camping, at the park…even at the beach.  Freeze a few cartons the night before and toss into a sports bag, picnic basket or cooler, and it will be the right temperature when you’re ready to enjoy it.  If your family doesn’t drink it all during the trip…just take it home and put it back in the pantry.
