Magic Straws Make Drinking Milk Fun
If your kids aren’t big milk drinkers, Magic Straws might be a good way to encourage them to drink more milk. These straws contain tiny beads that add a burst of flavor to a plain glass of milk.
Magic Straws are a nice alternative to powders or syrups because they’re fun for kids to use and have only 17 calories per straw since there is no added sugar.
My son first tried Magic Straws at Grandma’s house. He’s not a huge milk drinker, but the straws were enough to convince him to give milk a shot.
One thing to remember about Magic Straws is that you don’t cut the straw. When I picked up chocolate straws for our house, I cut the straw and ended up with beads everywhere. Even though it might seem like it would be hard for your child to drink through the straw without cutting it, this is the way you’re supposed to use the product.
Magic Straws can be used with soy, rice, or lactose-free milk if you prefer. They require no refrigeration, so they’re fine to pack in a child’s lunchbox. The straws themselves are both gluten-free and lactose-free.
Available Magic Straws flavors include:
- Vanilla Milkshake
- Cookies & Cream
- Orange Cream
- Wild Berry
- Banana Cream
- Cinnamon Roll
Seasonal flavors are:
- Spring: Neapolitan, Banana Split
