Are You Consuming Enough Dairy Products?

Are You Consuming Enough Dairy Products?

According to the 2010 Dietary Guidelines, most Americans fall short of the recommended serving of fat-free and low-fat milk and milk products. Generally women consume less than men and consumption decreases with age.
A standard serving is one cup of milk or yogurt, two cups of cottage cheese, or 1 ½ ounces of hard cheese.
Dairy products can protect against weak bones, high blood pressure and more. Also both children and adults consume too little calcium, vitamin D, potassium and dietary fiber. Dairy products provide all but the fiber.
Since we live in the Dairy State, eating fat-free and low-fat dairy products is good for our health as well as the state’s economy. Smoothies made with milk and fruit and yogurt are a great way to add calcium to the diet. Try making macaroni and cheese from scratch, serving grilled cheese sandwiches and fruit with cottage cheese. Aim for three servings per day.
