Celebrate the reasons why dairy makes sense

Not only do dairy foods taste great, but they are good for your health and your budget. Plus, they're produced by dairy farmers with a long standing commitment to sustainability. To better understand dairy's benefits, consider the following:


Dairy is a Nutrient Powerhouse: Dairy foods are full of vitamins and minerals and help build strong bones and healthy muscles, control blood pressure, maintain a healthy weight, and reduce the risk of heart disease.


Dairy Provides More for Your Money: At about 25 cents per 8-ounce serving, milk is a bargain, especially when you consider all the nutrients inside. "Dairy is a wise investment for your family," says Midwest Dairy Association registered dietitian Stephanie Cundith. "No other food group delivers as much nutrition in such an affordable, flavorful and convenient way."


Dairy Farmers Are Committed to Sustainability: 8,000 Midwest dairy farm families work 365 days a year to ensure nutritious milk and dairy foods are available now and in the future while using a variety of conservation practices and on-farm efficiencies to reduce their environmental impact.
