Milk is an irreplaceable, all natural wellness beverage responsible for supplying nine essential nutrients including four of the seven nutrients of concern for adults (calcium, potassium, magnesium and Vitamin A). Milk alone is the No. 1 source of calcium, Vitamin D and potassium. It is also the No. 1 source of protein for children ages 2 to 11, and in children followed from ages 2 months to 8 years, a higher dietary calcium intake from calcium-rich foods like milk, cheese and yogurt were associated with a lower percentage of body fat.
