Dairy 3 for Me
By participating in the Dairy 3 for Me pledge, you are committing to getting the three recommended servings of dairy by enjoying some of your favorite dairy items like milk, cheese and yogurt every day!
Are you lactose intolerant or do you know someone who is? Being lactose intolerant doesn’t mean you have to give up dairy – seriously! There are a variety of ways to enjoy milk, cheese and yogurt, and get the nutrients – like protein and calcium – that come with them. Get the facts before giving up dairy.
All “milks” are not created equal. Before you reach for a carton of almond milk, soy milk, or other dairy alternatives, it’s important to learn what you’re really pouring into your cup or bowl. Dairy alternatives tout a nutrient or two, but they don’t measure up to the nine essential nutrients in cow’s milk.
Dairy Protein Power
If you’re looking for ways to add protein to your diet, you’re not alone. Recently, protein has become a trendy nutrient; you’ll likely find it showcased on a variety of product labels in your grocery store. Dairy foods, though, have always been and continue to be a tried-and-true source of protein.
Dairy farmers follow strict standards, such as testing their milk before it leaves the farm, to ensure milk is safe and wholesome. The milk they produce is their badge of honor and their reputation. It’s also the same milk their family drinks. Rest assured, milk is safe for you and your family.
