Nutrition plays an undeniably-important role in child development. A parent’s choice of what foods and beverages to keep in their home goes well beyond choosing healthy options. Their child’s age, stage of development, allergies and intolerances are important elements. In this first piece in a series on how dairy supports different life stages, we are outlining dairy’s role in supporting child development. What better time to explore the benefits of milk and milk-derived ingredients than during the celebrations around World School Milk Day, commonly celebrated the last Wednesday in September each year.

Today is World Milk Day, so join USDEC and 30 countries around the world in celebration and ‘raise a glass’ to milk and the many nutritious and delicious benefits that dairy can offer! World Milk Day has been celebrated worldwide since 2001 and is meant to shine a spotlight on the nutrition and economic importance of milk and other dairy products.
Unmatched nutrition is just the beginning; milk also is the starting point for a wide-array of U.S. ingredients that deliver a range of health and wellness benefits. The ingredients derived from milk can replace unwanted ingredients, like salt and hydrogenated oils, and have the protein quality to assist with weight management and muscle strength. And that’s just the start.
