Susan Allen of DairyMax Promotes Chocolate Milk as the Perfect Post-Workout Recovery for Athletes

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 12:15:22 CDT

Susan Allen of DairyMax Promotes Chocolate Milk as the Perfect Post-Workout Recovery for Athletes Back to school, means back to sports for a lot of kids and their parents this time of year. For many moms and dads, the concern for their young athletes’ ability to compete is just as important to them as the post-game recovery. Susan Allen of DairyMax joined Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays in studio recently to share with listeners, the nutritional benefits of chocolate milk for active children and young adults. You can hear their entire conversation by clicking or tapping the LISTEN BAR below.

“A lot of moms don’t realize and would be interested to know that chocolate mild is a great, economical way to help their young athletes,” Allen said, explaining the ways in which it helps. “First, athletes need to replenish. Carbohydrates help replenish and give you energy. Chocolate milk has carbohydrates.”

In addition, Allen says chocolate milk helps athletes rehydrate after losing sodium and potassium from sweating. It also helps to build and repair muscle, with up to 8g. of high-quality protein in a single glass.

“Throw a glass of chocolate milk to your all-star after a work-out and it will do a lot for their little bodies that are still growing and still trying to meet those physical demands of athletics.”

Some have debated the actual nutritional value of chocolate milk, arguing the amount of added sugar. But Allen insists chocolate milk has the perfect balance of carbohydrates and protein required for a post-activity recovery that does in fact benefit the consumer in a healthy way. It also helps children meet their recommended daily servings of dairy, which Allen says many children aren’t getting. However, parents or children can opt to drink plain white milk if they are watching their sugar intake, for all the same nutritional benefits, aside from perhaps less carbohydrates found in chocolate milk.

For more information on how chocolate milk can be added to your work-out regimen, refer to the DairyMax website for additional resource materials.

Allen will join Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays for his weekly In the Field segment on KWTV News9 in the Oklahoma City area on Saturday morning at 6:40 a.m.
