Dairy a delicious addition to your diet, it’s also filled with nutritious benefits!

Benefits of drinking dairy

Dairy isn’t just an important supplement to growing boys’ & girls’ diets, it’s important for adults both young and old as well. Dairy is packed with protein, calcium, riboflavin, vitamin D, phosphorous, potassium, vitamin B12, and niacin.

The nutrients in dairy can help with bone health, boost your workout results, build and repair muscle tissue, and even help with stress relief. The fat in dairy can also help keep you satiated and full, as well as help your body absorb fat-soluble vitamins. Plus, milk, a type of dairy, is a great source of fluid to keep you hydrated.
