Mavs Kids Club: “Think About Your Drink”

In a continuing effort to promote the importance for children to get three servings of dairy foods (milk, cheese or yogurt) daily, the Mavs Kids Club, Three-A-Day and Borden are giving one Metroplex child the chanceto have breakfast with Mavs guard Jason Terry.

The winner of the “Think About Your Drink” sweepstakes will receive breakfast at American Airlines Center for five friends and Terry, along with a one-year supply of Borden milk.

“Low-fat and non-fat milk and dairy foods are among the most recent Dietary Guidelines Food Groups to Encourage, along with fruits, vegetables and whole grains,” said Teresa Wagner, registered Dietitian with Dairy Max, the regional promotion organization funded by dairy farmers.

“Teaching children to eat a variety of nutrient rich foods such as Borden milk, cheese and yogurt ensures they receive the vitamins and minerals they need to be fit and healthy while taking in the appropriate amount of calories. Drinking Borden milk with meals provides calcium and eight other nutrients to help build strong bones and healthy bodies.”

The contest is underway. Children ages 6-12 can obtain an entry form at the Borden display in participating Metroplex Albertsons. Entries are due by March 21, 2008. A full list of rules is available on mavs.com.
