Malta’s favourite local dairy brand has once again come through with a spanking-new product line putting flavour and health first.
Using nothing but the best quality products, this time, Benna has chosen to target Maltese school kids with its Yummy Kids Yogurt line, available in three different flavours; Apricot & Pumpkin, Banana & Kale and Strawberry & Carrot.
With a new scholastic year right around the corner, these new yogurts seek to provide our young ones with the perfect amounts of fruits and veggies (and a bunch of other good stuff) to lead a perfectly balanced diet.
Here are six other reasons why a Yummy Kids Yogurt should definitely find itself in your kid’s daily diet these coming months:
1. They’ve got a low sugar content
With less than 10 grams of sugar per 100 grams of product, this new line of Benna yogurts is one of the few available in the Maltese market which kids can eat at school.
School rules aside, there’s so many benefits that come with reducing you or your kids’ sugar intake that we just don’t know where to start. Here’s some of it though:
- It helps maintain a healthy weight
- It improves brain function
- It benefits your mental health
- It helps care for your heart
- It improves digestion
2. They’ve got no artificial sweeteners, colours or preservatives
With this yogurt, it’s no secret that Benna have prioritised consumers’ well-being.
By staying away from any sort of artificial colours, preservatives or sweeteners, you can rest assured that only the best quality ingredients will be going into your kids’ school lunches. Plus, who doesn’t love some fresh fruit and veg to kickstart the day?
3. They pack up a healthy dose of vitamin D3
Vitamin D goes hand-in-hand with a couple of the other minerals mentioned here.
It’s thanks to this sunshine vitamin that our much-needed calcium and phosphorus are properly absorbed and put to good use all over our bodies. So you can drink all the milk you want, but if Vitamin D’s missing from your diet, then all that great calcium’s pretty-much going to waste.
4. They provide you with just the right amount of phosphorus
It might sound borderline sinister, but we promise you, phosphorus is vital to keeping your little ones’ bones strong and healthy.
However, this mineral does much more than just strengthen our pearly whites; from kidneys to muscles, it positively affects a range of systems in our body, and it’s fair to say that it’s pretty vital to every single one of them.
5. They’re a great source of calcium
Up until we reach the age of 25 (though sometimes earlier), our bones and teeth just keep getting denser and stronger – and it’s mainly thanks to this blessed chemical element we call calcium.
However, not consuming enough calcium before our mid to early twenties puts us and our kids at a higher risk of developing bone-related diseases. So put your mind at rest and pack some yogurt with tomorrow’s lunch.
6. They’re made with 100% fresh Maltese milk
From its impressive nutritional profile to its versatility as an ingredient, milk has, quite literally, something for everyone.
On top of all this, the base of these yogurts is Fresh Maltese milk. So if you’re looking for a bit of a health boost whilst helping out local businesses, there’s absolutely no reason you shouldn’t give these yogurts (or any other Benna product for that matter) a shot.
