(NC)-Pregnant and nursing mothers are highly conscious of the importance of milk in their diet to nourish their unborn or nursing infants and replace nutrients that are being drawn from their own bodies during pregnancy and lactation. Ensuring that their fluid and, even more important, their milk intake is adequate is an ongoing challenge for busy moms.

Thanks to a new innovation in milk processing, getting enough milk just became a lot more convenient.

The latest technology pasteurizes fresh milk at extremely high temperatures to kill all bacteria that cause spoilage, without any change in taste or loss of nutrients. It is then packaged in a totally sterile environment into a freshness bottle. Fresh milk processed this way can be bought in quantity, stored at room temperature for three months and only needs to be refrigerated after opening.

Of special interest to expecting and nursing moms are chocolate milk, milkshakes and Dairy Oh! fresh white milk with DHA from Neilson Dairy that are processed this way and sold in the 325-mL freshness bottle. It fits in a handbag, can be sipped while breast-feeding, doing household chores, running errands or driving kids to school or sports activities.

More and more, mothers are learning about the importance of DHA to their unborn or newborn child's healthy development. This omega-3 fatty acid is the primary building block for the brain and critical to health and development of the eyes and nervous system.

During pregnancy and lactation, mothers are the sole source of DHA for their developing infants. That makes it vitally important for expecting and lactating moms to replenish their DHA continually. The single-serve bottle of Neilson Dairy Oh! is an easy and convenient way for them to do just that.
