Did you know? Malted milk powder was invented in 1873 by the Horlick brothers as a supplement for infants, which later ended up gaining immense popularity amongst teenage kids because of its chocolatey flavour and added health benefits.
If you're one of those parents who aren't sure if malted milk is good for your kids' health, check out these 5 reasons why the chocolatey milk is considered a health booster:
Malted milk may strengthen blood due to its high iron content
Malt milk powder is high in iron, which is a mineral essential for proper and consistent functioning of blood.
The milk is full of antioxidants that may aid brain development in kids
The most crucial ingredient that boosts memory and helps in brain development is Vitamin E and malted milk offers that in abundance.
Antioxidants present in the drink can prevent damage of cells and aid brain development in kids.
Malted milk provides energy and boosts metabolism
Malted milk is rich with Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, folate and thiamine which as a result provide energy and boost metabolism.
