Healthy Eating Guidance about Whole Fats and Flavored Milk

Many parents restrict children to low fat dairy and non-flavored milks. New research shows whole fat dairy and flavored milks can also be beneficial for maintaining health for all ages, providing parents a wide-range of options in the dairy food group. While some individuals may still benefit from consuming low-fat milk, cheese and yogurt, emerging evidence suggests that consumption of full fat dairy foods may be associated with a decreased risk for diabetes, and kids who drink plain and flavored milk may have better overall diet quality without an increase in body weight.

CALIFORNIA – THE NATION’S DAIRY LEADER

So Long, Summer, Hello Lunch Box!

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO & MODESTO – September 12, 2013 – The sun is setting on summer and the hours spent at the pool are now being spent in the classroom. With over 79 million kids back in school this month (US Census), there’s less splashing and lots more lunch bags to be filled.

Celebrate the dairy days of summer by keeping products cool and fresh

Nothing says summer like dairy products from the number one dairy state, California. From scoops of cold, creamy ice cream to melted cheese atop juicy grilled burgers, dairy and summer menus go together like sweet corn and butter. But nothing spoils the summer fun like spoiled milk, which is why it's important to know how to store your dairy products - especially in the hotter months.
