Got Milk? {Giveaway!}

I admit.  I'm not much of a straight-up milk drinker. I try to add diary to my diet, but I'm not sure ice cream qualifies.

So when I was asked to partner with the Midwest Dairy Council to bring you June Dairy Month, I jumped on board so I could learn more.




  • Vitamin D: Vitamin D (“The Sunshine Vitamin”) promotes calcium absorption and helps strengthen bones. Milk is one of the few dietary sources of vitamin D and just one 8-ounce glass provides 25% of your recommended daily value.
  • Protein: Protein builds and repairs muscle tissue while giving you a boost of energy! The protein in milk, cheese and yogurt builds and repairs muscle tissue and can help you feel full.
  • Potassium: Did you know that milk and yogurt contain as much potassium as a banana? Potassium regulates the body’s fluid balance and helps maintain normal blood pressure.
  • Vitamin B12: Milk and yogurt are also excellent sources of B12, which helps maintain healthy red blood cells and nerve tissue.
