La Farge, Wisconsin-based Organic Valley has launched its new Prenatal and Postnatal Support Smoothie Mixes for expecting and new moms.
Both smoothie mixes are available on the cooperative’s new direct-to-consumer site and made with organic ingredients, including pasture-raised milk from Organic Valley’s small family farms – real dairy from cows that are raised without antibiotics, toxic pesticides or added hormones.
“At Organic Valley, we want to support families at every stage and we didn’t see an easy, organic prenatal and postnatal nutrition option for moms,” said Janie Felton, senior associate innovation manager. “And so, we worked hand-in-hand with expecting and new moms, dietitians, and OB-GYNs to develop the new Organic Valley Smoothie Mixes that can help moms meet their nutritional needs during their pregnancy journey.”
The new Organic Valley Smoothie Mixes, when added to eight fluid ounces of 2 percent milk, contain organic nutrition and provide a source of protein and several essential nutrients. The Prenatal Support Smoothie Mix offers important nutrients for expecting moms including DHA, folate and folic acid; the Postnatal Support Smoothie Mix provides new moms with DHA plus Fenugreek.
“I feel confident recommending Organic Valley’s Prenatal and Postnatal Smoothie Mixes because they are real food – not just a supplement – and can play a big role in supporting moms during an important time in their lives,” said Carly Knowles, dietitian and doula. “When you add them to Organic Valley milk, you can help ensure that you’re getting what you need to help stay healthy and thrive.”
Available in chocolate and vanilla flavors, the new Support Smoothie Mixes are shelf-stable and can be shaken, blended or mixed with Organic Valley 2 percent milk for a healthy bump in high-quality organic nutrition. And, when moms purchase the new smoothie mixes, they’re also supporting small organic family farms and a higher standard of animal care.
The Prenatal and Postnatal Support Smoothie Mixes are available in 10 oz canisters in stores nationwide and on its direct-to-consumer site at shop.organicvalley.com.
