According to the National Dairy Council, Americans are currently only consuming about two dairy servings per day, putting them at risk for deficiencies in calcium, vitamin D, magnesium, potassium and other key nutrients for health. Adding just one more daily serving of low-fat or fat-free dairy can help fill some of America's nutrient gaps.
Further, research shows that three servings of dairy is not only good for your bones, it can help you lose weight, improve your heart health, and reduce your risk of diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
If you're an athlete, research indicates that drinking chocolate milk as a post-workout drink promotes hydration, reduces muscle damage, and improves muscle recovery. Milk is a high-quality source of carbohydrates, protein, and electrolytes.
Due to a growing number of people who are turning to non-dairy alternatives, there are many dairy-free substitutions you can incorporate into your meals so you can continue to enjoy your favorite recipes.
