In the food industry, alternative products have developed a massive appeal as many will likely prefer these options with changing times.

Shaquille O’Neal is one of the most popular former athletes in the world, and his superstardom has arguably cast some spotlight on his children. Shaq is a proud father of six children, and five of them are all set to promote the plant-based product Silk Nextmilk. It is a plant-based milk that is an alternative to cow milk. As per their website, it is “made with a combination of oat milk and coconut milk blend, with soy protein as the main ingredients. It’s dairy free, gluten free, & also without carrageenan & artificial colors or flavors.

Also, the Los Angeles Lakers legend’s children are not the only children of superstars promoting the product. According to a report from Marketing Dive, “Brooklyn Peltz Beckham, Ella Bleu Travolta, Sailor Brinkley Cook and Myles O’Neal (joined by siblings Shareef, Me’Arah, Shaqir and Amirah) sport “milk” mustaches in ads that will run across social media, billboards and other channels.”
