For many people, their early childhood has fond memories of the ‘big green round container tin’ that sits on our shelf and cupboard.

It was like a morning call that a cup of it, would bring a smile to start the day.

MILO – Malaysia’s No. 1 choice for breakfast remains a nutritious beverage thanks to the goodness of its ingredients and nutrients.

Together with balanced diet and healthy lifestyle, MILO with its iconic choco-malty taste provides the energy to stay active and alert.

Going back in time, since the choco-malt drink was introduced in Malaysia in 1950, MILO has won the hearts of Malaysians across all generations, and more importantly captured their taste buds.

It just becomes a must-have breakfast drink, and it has since become a well-loved household brand and a quintessential part of Malaysian breakfast.

Questions have been asked on what makes MILO the perfect breakfast pairing.

According to Wong Mei Ching, Group Corporate Nutrition Manager, Nestlé Products Sdn Bhd: “Pairing your breakfast with MILO helps to contribute towards your daily energy and nutritional needs. It also complements a balanced diet and active lifestyle. One cup of MILO contains 124kcal – which is 6% of your daily energy needs (based on 2000kcal). It is in line with MILO’s brand purpose which is to support Malaysians in leading an active and healthy lifestyle.”

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it doesn’t mean you need to have a heavy or greasy meal. And a cup of MILO paired with a balanced simple breakfast can help give you the energy to kickstart your busy mornings and active lifestyle.

But what makes MILO so good? The goodness of MILO comes from the ingredients, i.e. malt barley, milk and cocoa, each of which has its own benefit. Malt barley gives you energy, while milk is a source of protein and calcium. Cocoa gives MILO the unmistakably distinctive aroma and delicious chocolatey taste you love.

Furthermore, MILO is a nutritious beverage to fuel your mornings. It contains macronutrients such as carbohydrates, fat and protein which provide the energy, as well as micronutrients - with a unique combination of six vitamins and three minerals that help to release energy from the food you eat.

There is only around one teaspoon of added sugar (sucrose) in a serving (30g) of MILO.

So how do you make the perfect cup of MILO? Many prefer to add sugar and/or sweetened beverage creamer to their MILO, but you only need to add 200ml of water to six teaspoons (30g) of MILO powder to enjoy the choco-malty taste and nutritional goodness of MILO.

In addition to providing nutritious energy, MILO has been a champion of active lifestyle and Malaysia’s grassroots sports for the past 70 years.

Sporting efforts such as MILO Hidup Bola, MILO Champions Clinic and MILO Activ Jam Senam Aerobik not only encourage Malaysians to keep active but have also become platforms to discover sporting talents from a young age.

Even in the new normal, MILO is keeping Malaysians active with MILO Rentak Aktif - a series of online fitness routine tutorials for the whole family to join at home.
