There are many times when we decide to go for a walk in the park or to have a little picnic and our daughters tell us that they would like to have some milk for a drink instead of water or apple juice. This means that either we have to take a huge cooler and lots of ice packs or we have to tell them that it is just not something we can do this particular time. Unfortunately when we are doing walks or going any distance on foot, it’s often a matter of telling them we can’t because the cooler is by necessity very large and heavy with the cooler, milk and ice packs all adding to the weight. Due to the fact that we also have an autistic son and because of this need mobility to deal with him if he decides that he is not going to enjoy the trip saying no happens far more often then saying yes.
We have finally found a solution that works for us. Milk Unleashed is a Shelf Safe milk that does not require the constant cool temperatures that standard milk requires and this means that we can take along the milk unleashed products and not have to take along the cooler and ice packs. It means that we can stop saying no and start letting the girls have what they really want.
The thing is it’s not just the convenience in transporting the milk that makes this such a useful product. The lack of a need to refrigerate shelf save milk means that not only can we take it places we never could before, we also can purchase larger quantities reducing the chances of running out and even stocking up to cut down on trips to the store.
The thing is that it becomes an even greater bonus for us as a family with an autistic child. Our son has decided in the last few days that liquids should be poured down the toilet. To a family like ours this means that we need to start keeping anything liquid under lock and key, something that is incredibly difficult when we are talking about items that must be refrigerated. Now with Milk Unleashed we have the ability to store it out of reach of our son and still have nice safe milk for the family to drink.
You can find a number of places where various Shelf Safe milk is sold..
