Kids Upgrade Snacks for Santa

Keeping Milk Safe until Santa is Ready to Sip (TORONTO)-Dec. 17, 2013-It’s a longstanding Christmas Eve tradition to leave out cookies and milk for Santa. But what happens if kids pour a big glass of milk for Santa before they go to bed around 9 p.m. – but then he doesn’t arrive until well after midnight? It’s not going to taste fresh, and might even be not safe to drink. A better idea is to leave out a carton of shelf safe milk with those cookies. It’s Grade A, real milk that doesn’t require refrigeration until it’s opened (no preservatives added). Single-serving milk cartons can be stored in the cupboard for up to six months without refrigeration.
