The following is a guest post from our sponsor, Milk.
You may think your family is getting enough essential nutrients they need, but they may not.
A new report called “What America’s Missing” reveals that 9 out of 10 Americans aren’t getting key nutrients they need. And even though there’s a growing concern about childhood obesity, many children still fall short of the nutrients they need like calcium, vitamin D, and potassium. So while many kids today may be overweight, there are significant numbers who are also undernourished. But there’s a delicious and easy way to help -- milk.
Milk provides 9 important nutrients in each glass. And it is the single greatest source food of calcium, vitamin D, and potassium in the American diet. No other food contributes more of these essential nutrients.
Including milk with meals is one of the best strategies to help make sure that children and teens don’t fall short of the nutrients they need -- which is particularly important during these critical growth years. A single serving of milk will help enhance the nutritional value of every meal. Plus, milk is already in your fridge and there are many easy and delicious ways to pour one more -- whether you’re filling up a glass, adding it to cereal, or making a smoothie.
Adding one more serving of milk to your family’s day can help your family get nutrients they need to be healthy and strong.
