Having fun with straw drinking
Drinking from a straw can be a challenge for some kids, and it can be a scary thing for those who don’t know what to do or expect. An OT friend of mine named Sharon mentioned that she and the kids love to use the Got Milk Magic Flavored Straws when working on straw drinking.
The straw is filled with little flavor pellets that dissolve in the milk as it flows up through the straw to your mouth. The ends of the straw are pinched in a bit to keep the pellets in the straw, but does not hinder the flow of milk.
The flavor is not as strong as flavored milk such as chocolate milk, but it has a good flavor to it. The straws come in many flavors such as chocolate, strawberry, and cookies and cream.
Have you tried the Magic Milk Straws? What do you think of them? Better yet, what do the kids think of them?

Thanks for sharing! I didn’t even know about these straws! Will definitely try next time I’m working on straw skills.
