Canada’s new food guide recommends milk and dairy products as part of the protein category. It also recommends white milk as a healthy drink alternative to water.
Children’s diets during school hours are sub-optimal, notably for dairy, according to our national Canadian Community Health Survey.
Milk and milk products are rich in protein, calcium, riboflavin and vitamin B12 — nutrients essential to good health. It is difficult to obtain your daily requirements of calcium and vitamin D without consuming milk or milk products.
Children who drink milk at school are more likely to meet their nutrient needs. Make the healthy choice the easy choice!
