Health & WellnessMilk's powerful nutrient package of calcium, plus eight other essential nutrients, helps nourish your body, not just your bones.
Milk contains essential nutrients, including calcium, potassium, protein and phosphorus; plus, it's fortified with vitamins A and D. The protein naturally found in milk helps to build strong muscles for your active lifestyle. One glass of milk has as much potassium as a small banana.
Drinking milk and eating dairy foods makes it easy for kids to get the bone-building calcium and other nutrients their growing bodies need. Our dairy farms contribute $400,000 annually to help promote dairy products and fight against poor nutrition, inactivity and overweight/obesity among our nation's youth. We are active in our local schools to help teach students about dairy farming and encourage physical activity and good nutrition.
