oday is national milk day!
Today marks the day that milk started being delivered, and not in a gallon jug but in a glass bottle!
The first glass bottle for milk was created in 1884 by Dr.Thatcher.
According to the...
“National Dairy Council, milk has 9 essential nutrients that benefit our body”
Those 9 essential nutrients are:
Here’s some thing to think about...
How many times a day we use milk?
My minds on breakfast so here’s some examples:
Just a nice glass of milk
With cereal in the morning
To make scrambled eggs
Milk has multi purpose uses whether it be:
Butter, Yogurt, Ice Cream etc..
It doesn’t even have to be food, some lotions and beauty products have milk as an ingredient!
Milk is important, I mean if you think about it... a lot is made with milk...products we use daily, besides just drinking it!
Mammals to, including women are able to produce milk to feed their young/child!
Just like cows are able to produce for our consumption and their calf’s! Especially passing down nutrition!
You see when your are born and just like when a calf is born that first drink/meal from your mother is important it’s known as the “liquid gold” better known as colostrum which boost the immune system!
Another animal that we use milk a lot from is goat. There are many other animals that produce milk that we consume but MAJORITY of our dairy products come from cows!
SO TODAYS CHALLENGE FOR YOU!
WHAT DO YOU CONSUME THE MOST OF THAT HAS MILK IN IT?
HOW MANY GLASSES OF MILK DO YOU DRINK A DAY?
Yes this includes chocolate milk folks
WHAT TYPE OF MILK DO YOU BUY?
2%,whole,skim, 1% etc
**my answers will be in
comments later today stay tuned**
Thank that local dairy, thank the transportation from farm to store and of course be thankful those cows and other female mammals that produce milk.
