Choose Milk ---- Dairy Month

June has been known as Dairy month since 1939. The goal is to appeal to more families to drink milk as beverage of choice. Coffee is great in coffee, on cereal, and many other ways. The nutritional value of milk is one that can not be disagreed upon Both the U.S Department of Ag and the Department of Health and Human Services agree that milk is important part of human diets and recommend three daily servings of dairy foods like milk and cheese.-

Dairy helps provide many nutrients including calcium, potassium and vitamin D. Nutrients in milk can help prevent heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes and osteoporosis. Strong bones and teeth are also helped out by dairy products. Each meal should have at least one dairy product included.

While there are many alternative milk products on the market cow's milk offers superior nutrient over the rest. Soy, almond, rice or coconut take your choice they will not stand up to milk. Fat free cow's milk has 15 fewer calories per glass, 70% more potassium and nearly double the amount of protein as the other calcium fortified beverages. Price is something else to look at milk is nearly 1/2 the price f alternative drinks. In addition, organic and regular dairy foods contain the same essential nutrients key to a healthy and balanced diet. For those that are lactose sensitive should giv lactose reduced or lactose free products a try.
