MILO® :
4.69 out of 5 based on 355 reviews.

As mums, meeting the daily nutritional needs of our children is so important. There is nothing worse than a child who lacks the energy needed to get them through their day.

But sometimes finding nutritious, energy boosting drinks that your kids will love can be a bit of a struggle.

Which is why we are so excited to announce that we are looking for hundreds of mums and their kids to trial and review MILO®!

MILO_750g_AU_No_HSR_FOP_1_46_resized_50_again

MILO is a nutrient rich, low GI malt powder drink, which gives kids who need a boost, the nourishing energy they need to take on the day.

As Mum we are all aware that milk is an essential part of our children’s diet. You may be surprised to learn that MILO adds even more nutrients to milk. In fact, MILO adds 32% more protein, 70% more calcium, plus more iron (30% RDI) and more vitamin D (32% RDI). MILO is also low GI to provide sustained energy for active kids. How good is that?

PLUS MILO is made with four simple main ingredients – malt barley, milk powder, sugar and cocoa plus 8 vitamins and minerals (calcium, iron, vitamin B2, B3, B6, B12, C and D). The unique combination of ingredients gives MILO the delicious choc malt taste and crunch that kids love.

Whether you’re powering up for training for a big game or you’ve just done your best and need a nutritious boost … MILO puts a smile on your face and a spring in your step!

How do you drink your Milo?

MILO is a great way to encourage children to drink milk and meet daily nutrient needs such as calcium and iron. Simply add 3 level teaspoons of MILO to 200ml milk and stir until combined for a delicious, nourishing drink. Serve hot or cold.

Where can I buy MILO?

MILO is available in 200gm, 450gm, 750gm, 1kg, 1.1 kg tins from Coles, Woolworths, IGA and Big W. For more information visit www.milo.com.au.

    Winter Porridge

    We really now it’s winter when it snows up on the tops/mountains as we certainly get the affects here. So this morning it was comforting porridge (rolled oats) with a generous sprinkling of Milo on top. Nutritious Milo contains Riboflavin (B2),Niacin (B3),Vitamin B6,Vitamin B12,Vitamin C,Vitamin D,Calcium,Iron and Phosphorus. Oats are an excellent source of thiamine, iron, and dietary fiber. Oats are also the only source of antioxidant compounds known as avenanthramides; these are believed to have properties which help to protect the circulatory system from arteriosclerosis. Oats also contain beta-glucan which is super for lowering Cholesterol. So with this delicious bowl of goodness we will all power through the day.

    I love it as much as the kids!

    Any drink that is equally delicious hot or cold is a winner in my books! My whole family love Milo and we always have it as a weekend treat. It is not something I would allow them to have everyday but I do like that it contains essentials vitamins and minerals. It brings a sense of nostalgia as well as I used to love it as a child.

    Milo Quintessential part of healthy family life

    Winter mornings dark, cold & wet,
    Little person sleepy out of bed,
    Not much time to eat and fuss,
    Got to meet country school bus.
    A hot milky MILO comforts like a hug,
    Powerhouse nutrition in a mug.
    She drinks it ‘coz its warm & yummy
    Mums glad shes rich food in her tummy,
    Energy for young body and brain
    Until recess & whole busy day sustain.
    Then weary after school she’ll have another cup
    As we share company & the days events discuss
    After training or sport a hot cup can revive
    Before bed, to wind down for a restful night.
    My Doc told me when I was expecting
    drinking MILO would allay nutrient neglecting,
    Four healthy babies were born to grow
    Into sporty children & teenagers on the go.
    MILO I drank as a child, as have my four,
    As will the next generation, I’m sure.
    Every country kitchen has MILO on hand,
    Growing strong & healthy, loving this trusted brand.

    Tie over snack

    Milo is the perfect snack for those times when it is too late for a heavy snack but too early for a meal. Milo, whether cold and made on milk or hot and made with water, it is a delicious, nutritious substitute for food. A warm cup of Milo before bed helps to relax the energized kids and helps to settle them down. Tired, tested and true, Milo has been around for a long long time and will continue to be a favourite for a long time to come. It is an example product to use in baking, smoothies, and a topping for desserts.

    Milo the Mellow Mood Maker

    This afternoon our Milo was enjoyed after a visit to the dentist. My daughter was told to only have soft foods and liquids. Her number one choice was a warm Milo. Feeling anxious after time in the dentist’s chair, a warm cup of Milo helped her feel more calm and relaxed. The familiar feeling of warm milk with Milo warms the heart and the tummy. She was straight back into making her favorite Milo cupcakes (see earlier review for recipe).

    Goodness in a cold or warm milky treat

    MILO is a great milky treat, with a taste of malt/chocolate. Whether you drink it cold in the morning, or warm of an evening (or anytime you like), its good to know that in that glass of milk is 8 essential vitamins and minerals going into their little bodies too.

    The best part (to the kids) is that they eat the leftover Milo powder for that tasty treat, that came in their milk. And for the kids on the go, like my little soccer man, it is the quick energy boost just before a game….

    MILO is the perfect after school snack ingredient

    Whilst it’s perfect on it’s own with milk as a warm or cold drink for afternoon tea, I took this review opportunity to make some more hearty snacks using Milo as an ingredient.

    Here is my recipe for milo bliss balls. I found it a perfect ingredient to provide that little bit of sweetness that we all crave in the afternoon. The kids had one each with their fruit and didn’t complain about being hungry until dinner time.

    Recipe:

    1 cup almonds
    1/2 cup of quick oats
    2 heaped tablespoons of milo (about 50g)
    8 medjool dates
    1/4 cup coconut water
    1 tablespoon maple syrup
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon

    Please everything in the processor and run until a dough forms. If a little dry add small amounts of coconut water until the dough stays together when you press it with your hands. Scoop the dough into tablespoon sized balls and press tightly. Continue until all the mixture is used. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

    Steaming Milo with warm donuts.

    Sunday afternoon was freezing, the wind was blowing that strong it would blow a dog of it’s chain.
    Our afternoon was spent catching up on TV and Enjoying our freshly homemade donuts and comforting Milo. Seriously there is no better winter warmer that provides all the nutrients that Milo does and tastes simply amazing in the process. So extremely yummy and so very good for you.

    Thanks Milo

    Milo was a staple when i was a kid growing up.
    Now its a delicious snack to keep my own kids going, or a great accompaniment to the perfect breakfast to get the kids up and going in the morning. Weather straight from the tin with a spoon or added to milk, a tin of Milo never last long in our house (especially when it’s a great topping for ice cream, yum!).
