The Importance Of Milk In The Diet

Milk, cheese and yogurt are all rich in the following beneficial nutrients:

  • Calcium – for healthy bones and teeth.
  • Phosphorous – for energy release
  • Magnesium – for muscle function
  • Protein – for growth and repair
  • Vitamin B12 – for production of healthy cells
  • Vitamin A – for good eyesight and immune function
  • Zinc – for immune function
  • Riboflavin – for healthy skin
  • Folate – for production of healthy cells
  • Vitamin C – for formation of healthy connective tissues.

Casein, a protein found only in milk, contains all of the essential amino acids, which are the building blocks of muscles.

One glass of milk alone can make a significant contribution to the daily recommended intake of many important nutrients for all age groups.

These nutrients in milk help make it nature’s most nearly perfect food.
