Healthy Diet Demands Dairy Daily

The role of dairy foods is more crucial than ever as most Americans today are not getting enough calcium in their daily diets, putting them at risk for disease.

* Nearly 9 out of 10 teenage girls fail to get enough calcium in their diets.

* Almost 7 out of 10 teenage boys don’t meet daily calcium recommendations.

*About three-fourths of Americans (or about 75% do not get enough clacium in their diets).

Kids are in a calcium crisis- they need more milk more often. No matter what your age, the calcium that comes from milk and dairy products is an essential part of promoting good health as well as good bone development and maintenance.
