Got Milk? Why Dairy is important for Children
12/11/2018
Consuming dairy is important for bone health, as it provides the necessary nutrients - calcium, potassium, vitamin D, and protein – for building bones and teeth. Childhood and adolescence are critical periods to encourage a diet with adequate dairy intake, as the body is continually building bone mass. By age 30, the bones will reach their maximum strength and density, as known as peak bone mass. Not eating enough dairy can put children at increased risk of osteoporosis later in life, as well as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and high blood pressure.
