June is National Dairy Month. School meals provide at least 2/3 of your recommended dairy products daily. Calcium, along with many other nutrients, is one of the key nutrients in dairy products.
Dairy foods like low-fat or fat-free milk, yogurt and cheese are fundamental to good nutrition. Healthy eating styles that include fat-free or low-fat dairy foods have been linked to health benefits such as reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes in adults and improved bone health, especially in children and adolescents. Milk, cheese and yogurt provide high-quality protein. A growing body of research supports benefits of higher protein diets for athletes and highly active individuals, weight management and to foster healthy aging.
Three servings of low-fat and fat-free dairy foods like milk, cheese and yogurt are recommended by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans for those 9 years and older, and there are options in the dairy case for almost everyone—including lactose-free or low-lactose varieties for those with lactose intolerance.
