I'm taking you on a journey from A to Z through the land of dairy!
There's no need to pack your bags, just come along!
E Is For Every
3 EVERY DAY. On average, Americans are currently consuming about two dairy servings per day. The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans encourages three daily servings of low-fat or fat-free milk and milk products for adults and children nine years and older. Children ages 4-8 are recommended 2.5 servings and children ages 2-3 are recommended two servings daily. There are many advantages to 3 Every Day. Having dairy in your diet is a delicious way to improve your overall diet, get more nutrients and improve bone health.
One milk group serving is equal to:
- an 8-ounce glass of milk
- a 6 or 8 ounce container of yogurt
- 1½ ounces of natural cheese or 2 ounces of processed cheese
Go to Dairy Makes Sense for recipes to help get your 3 Every Day.
