Why Milk Matters
Did you know that toddlers need about 2 cups of milk products everyday for healthy growth and development? And so it is important to include them as part of your child’s meals and snacks everyday. Dairy foods provide nutrients that are vital for the health and development of your child’s body.
~~ Calcium builds strong bones and teeth.
~~ Yogurt, cheese and milk contain calcium and potassium.
~~ Vitamin D helps the body to maintain proper levels of calcium and phosphorous, which helps to build strong bones. Milk is a good source of vitamin D.
Though my son is already 5 year old, I still give him at least 2 cups of milk a day for I know that it is good for him and his health. I am glad he loves milk. Some kids don’t like it at all. If they only know what they are missing from not drinking milk or eating dairy foods. For me, parents should be strict when it comes to the foods their kids eat. Good eating habit starts at home and parents must a be good example of this!
There is so much more for me to learn about diet and nutrition, and so I recently picked up a book to help me accomplish this goal. I happen to read the factor diet review and thought this is exactly the kind of book that I have been looking for. I have already gone though half of the book and am loving it so far. I learned about milk and some other foods in this book, and so have become more conscious about my use of such foods. I am also learning about what foods are great for strength and weight loss at the same time, and am planning to incorporate more of these foods in my diet.
