Milk

Grandpa and Grandson enjoying milkMilk packs a nutrient punch. It remains one of the best – and tastiest – ways to ensure your diet is nutritious and balanced.

Only milk provides all nine essential nutrients on its own: calcium, pantothenic acid, phosphorus, protein, vitamins A, D and B12, riboflavin and niacin. That’s quite a glassful! 

Milk’s contributions to a healthy diet are endorsed by some of the nation’s leading health and nutrition organizations, including the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. 

Consumers enjoy milk’s versatility – you can select low-fat or fat-free options or an all-time favorite such as chocolate milk. 

And there’s more good news for consumers: milk remains an economic value. Penny for penny, no other food offers as much nutritional return as milk does for America’s families.
