It’s National Nutrition Month and Milk Unleashed has a fun calendar about all the goodness found in milk. As a beverage, milk is an easy way to incorporate calcium into our diets.
Since shelf safe milk does not require refrigeration until opened, single-serving cartons can be taken to school, on camping trips, to sporting events or any other adventures without worrying about spoilage. It can be frozen it the night before so it’s just the right temperature at lunch…but if you don’t get around to drinking it – no problem…put it back on the shelf (it will last 6 – 9 months).
According to the Journal of Pediatrics, dairy and calcium intakes are inadequate in four to 18-year-olds. In fact, only 30 percent of the US population two years of age and older get the recommended level of calcium or more. Plus, most kids do not get enough Vitamin D, potassium and protein, either. The good news — all of these important nutrients are found in shelf safe milk. Let’s spread the word for National Nutrition Month.
