Milk in these Tetra Paks retain their quality for six months on the shelf, just make sure to check the best before date when buying to know how long it will last on your shelf at home. Once open you need to drink/use it up within 7-10 days and it needs to be refrigerated.
One thing I love about the Tetra Pak milk is that you can freeze them the night before and then pop it in a lunch box to keep food cool and it will be ready for the kids to enjoy at lunch. Even if you don't freeze you can have the peice of mind that the milk you pack in the morning will still be good at lunch especially in the spring and summer months. These are great for camp as you know your kids need the milk but their lunches sit around in the heat until they are ready to eat them.
I also love to have one or two on my shelf in case we run out of milk. It doesn't usually happen much but before having the shelf safe milk I have missed out on a morning coffee after the kids hit up the milk first for their breakfast.
The video below explains the process of how milk is made to be safe on the shelf in a super simple way.
