Dairy Month: Landing page:

June is National Dairy Month.  Nutrient-rich dairy products are one of the most affordable sources of nutrition and make healthy eating easy. Together, milk, cheese, and yogurt provide a unique package of nine essential nutrients, including calcium, potassium, phosphorus, protein, vitamins A, D and B12, riboflavin, and niacin.

Beyond building stronger bones, three daily servings of low-fat or fat-free dairy foods improve overall diet quality and reduce the risk of various chronic diseases.

Ways to incorporate dairy into breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert:

  • Breakfast- Mix yogurt and maple syrup for an easy topping for waffles or French toast
  • Lunch- Waldorf Chicken Salad with Lemon Yogurt Dressing
  • Dinner- Use milk to create a delicious Alfredo Sauce
  • Dessert-Top grilled peaches or baked pears with a dollop of Greek yogurt
