100 reasons to love dairy
How do I love dairy? Let’s count the ways. I love dairy farmers, the people who work hard every day to produce safe and wholesome milk. Speaking of milk, I love how 8-ounces provides nine essential nutrients and costs, on average, only 25 cents. About those nutrients: For me as a runner, I love how dairy foods — including milk, cheese and yogurt — deliver protein to help my muscles recover and carbohydrates to restore my energy; and for my son as a growing nine year old, I love how dairy delivers calcium and vitamin D to strengthen his bones and teeth. But enough about me!

In celebration of 2015 being the National Dairy Council Centennial commemorating 100 years of dairy research and education, and June being National Dairy Month, I’ve invited some of my favorite registered dietitians and dairy farmers to share the love by collectively listing their 100+ reasons to love dairy.
