Add more to milk, with MILO®

Help kids who need a nutritional boost get the best out of each and every day with MILO for nourishing energy. Serve hot or cold and add more to milk with MILO!

Since the 1930’s, MILO has been a New Zealand icon, delivering essential nutrients to kids for a nutritional boost. You may be surprised to learn that MILO adds more nutrients to milk. MILO powder adds 31% more protein, 65% more calcium, plus more iron (32% RDI) and more vitamin D (39% RDI). MILO is also low GI to provide sustained energy for active kids, as part of a healthy, varied diet.

MILO powder is made with five simple main ingredients – malt barley, milk powder, sugar, cocoa and vegetable oil, 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 that kids love. MILO is a great way to encourage children to drink milk and help meet daily nutrient needs such as calcium and iron.

MILO is available in 200g and 900g tins, and 310g and 530g soft packs from major supermarkets.

    Hi Kidspot. What an awesome trial this was. My girls just loved the Milo, especially on the cold Saturday mornings at soccer. I will be uploading my video this weekend (computer issues). Definitely a must have in our home

    We were so happy to receive our tin of milk. My girls absolutely love it ! They like to sprinkle it over their weetbix in the morning or have a glass after school it’s good to drink warm on a cold winters day also good to drink cold on a hot summers day. They sometimes have it with a couple of marshmallows like a hot chocolate . If they could they would drink them all day . Love how it is healthy and helps them get the vitamins and minerals they need . Happy to say this Milo has gone down a treat. Thanks so much !

    We were all very excited to receive our tin of Milo and I’m pleased to report both my boys absolutely loved it! I showed them how to make it with warm milk after dinner and it quickly became a fun routine in the evening. It definitely brought back memories of my childhood days making a milo before bed and enjoying it with the family.. I didn’t think too much of it until now but it’s a lovely way to finish the day. We’ve since bought a big tin because the kids got their mates in on it and now we are the cool parents who give all the kids milo 🙂 Thanks for bringing a bit of fun back in to our nightly routine and reminding me how important the simple treats in life are 🙂

    Thankyou Kidspot and Milo for letting us trial the Milo product. My children have a warm Milo every morning with something else to eat for breakfast. They have a heaped teaspoon of Milo, hot water and milk. After winters sports practice, they love a Milo too.
    The best way that I’ve had Milo before is in a maternity hospital, I got served it in a mug, Milo, icecream and cold milk. It was shaken and it tasted delicious.

    Thanks so much for letting us review Milo. The kids were so excited as we normally buy budget brands from the supermarket. The kids and I got straight into it as soon as it arrived… it brought back so many memories of my childhood, chocolately without being too sweet. The kids loved it hot but then once I showed them cold with milk that was a hit. Only issue I have was the tin was too small! We will definitely purchase again…. at least I know the kids are getting nutrients while they are having a treat 🙂 Thanks again

    Hi thanks for giving us the opportunity for trying this sample size 200g tin usually we buy the packets for our children. To make ours we heat up the milk in the microwave in a cup then add 3 rounded teaspoons and give it a good stir. It’s great the Milo has added benefits when making with milk in my video I forgot to mention the kids have Milo about 4 times a week with Saturday’s before sport being one of them. They love the taste as well. It’s great it contains iron and calcium as they are important for growing children.

    Thank you for choosing my boys to trial the product, all 3 are avid milo drinkers our tin was demolished in 3days (baby tin) what our youngest called it. I am impressed with how much nutrients is in Milo and wrapped they just LOVE the flavour/taste. I bought the large tin for only $10.00 so it’s a steal, it packs so much goodness, you really can’t go wrong.

    It took alot of attempts but I finally have their video testimony, please advise how to upload.

    Soooo, a few weeks back doing the grocery shopping, our eldest spots the milo cereal, 3boxes later, myself and him are hooked – there is sooooo much sugary cereals nowadays that we just zoom through the aisles, as its normally porridge consumed in the mornings at our house (was).

    Recently our eldest completed a rugby tourney, and has converted a few of his team to… “Taken once a day, its the milo way”. WE LOVE MILO and will remain loyal to this kiwi product.

    Thank you again, for selecting my boys – they truly are MILO fiends!

    Hi Kidspot, thanks for giving my household the opportunity to review Milo – it’s been a pleasure because it’s such a wonderfully nutritious and tasty product! I’ve uploaded my video testimonial today. I love the fact that Milo contains so many great vitamins and minerals and that it has a 4.5- out of 5-star health rating. Then to top that all off, it’s delicious too! My 7-year-old daughter just loves the taste of it it. She enjoys it as an after-school snack with a piece of fruit. And it’s a great, nutritious boost for her before she goes to gymnastics. She enjoys it as a warm drink with lots of milk. Milo definitely gets the thumbs up in our household! Thanks Kidspot NZ!
