Celebrate National Dairy Month and Giveaway

by Nicole on June 25, 2013


We are a house full of milk drinkers and for us every month is Dairy Month! Still, it’s important to make sure your family is drinking milk, it has so many important benefits!

June is Dairy Month…serving for more than 70 years as a reminder of the importance of getting more protein- and calcium-rich dairy products into the family’s diet – especially for children. But parents often wonder how to do that when they’re on the go, since dairy products need to remain chilled.

Milk Unleashed is an educational campaign to let people know that shelf safe milk is a great solution when you’re on the go, especially with summer activities on the horizon. It is Grade A milk that doesn’t require refrigeration until it’s opened (no preservatives added). Single-serving milk boxes – similar to juice boxes – can be stored in the pantry for up to six months without refrigeration. It’s a convenient and healthy way to get the nutrition from milk on car trips, while camping, at the park…even at the beach. Freeze a few cartons the night before and toss into a sports bag, picnic basket or cooler, and it will be the right temperature when you’re ready to drink it. According to the Journal of Pediatrics, dairy and calcium intakes are inadequate in most four- to 18-year-olds. A carton (8 oz.) of shelf safe milk has eight grams of protein and nine essential nutrients. Now it’s easy to substitute a healthy beverage choice when you’re away from home, anytime, anywhere.

I am lucky because Noah loves to drink milk and he knows how important it is to his health and nutrition.  He will drink plain milk, chocolate milk, strawberry milk, pretty much any kind of milk! He usually drinks a glass with his breakfast and also one with his snack in the afternoon.  I like my milk over ice!
