I’ve always been brought up to think that “milk does a body good”. Now you see the milk campaigns with stars everywhere. They have a milk mustache and a smile. Great campaign right? I know I’ve seen tons, it’s almost like Sesame Street, if you haven’t done the milk campaign you’re a nobody. Actors from Dr. Phil to winners from The Biggest Loser have been seen sporting the milk mustache.
Now you can go to a website to learn more about milk and find some other mustaches.
I like learning about milk because I know it’s still great for my kids and I find learning about nutrition important for not only me but my family as a whole. We eat yogurt and we use milk and yogurt to make smoothies. My kids adore chocolate milk and my daughter asks for it every time we have breakfast and when we go to Mc. Donald’s. I love to have hot chocolate made of milk. We drink none fat milk but I love whole milk, it’s so good. Just trying to keep the calories down.
As you can find on Why Milk, Milk is a nutrient powerhouse and it’s naturally that way. We get calcium, vitamin D, protein, potassium, and vitamin A. Milk increased our bone health. My step father has been drinking milk his whole life and still drinks a large glass of milk with dinner. He never misses and he’s never had a broken bone and he accounts that to milk.
Regularly drinking milk during the growing years is associated with greater height, bone size and bone mineralization, while research has linked skipping milk to reduced height and increased fracture rates.
Forearm fracture rates of children and adolescents have increased sharply in the United States in recent years, and many researchers are worried that falling milk consumption and displacement of milk by carbonated drinks may be a factor.
