Goodness of Milk
Milk is an important part of our diet. Milk has various health benefits and is a good natural source of many nutrients, including calcium, protein, vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin B12 and zinc. Calcium is essential for building and maintaining strong healthy bones. The importance of getting enough calcium starts young and extends into adulthood. Not only do young children need it while their bones are growing, but adults need it to keep their bones strong and to prevent osteoporosis. If you are expecting a baby, it is also important to drink milk in pregnancy because calcium helps your unborn baby's developing bones to form properly.
Milk promotes the healthy function of our muscles and blood vessels. It contains potassium which plays a role in healthy blood pressure. If you are watching your fat intake or following a heart-healthy diet, try our low fat milk variety which provides a lot of nutrients for very modest calories.
