Did you know March is National Nutrition Month?

It’s the perfect time to think about making the right food and beverage choices for your family.

To celebrate, Milk Unleashed is taking a look at just how many vitamins and minerals are found in shelf-stable milk with a fun calendar that you and your family can look at throughout the month of March.

Since shelf safe milk does not require refrigeration until opened, single-serving cartons can be taken to school, on camping trips, to sporting events or any other adventures without worrying about spoilage. You can freeze it the night before so it’s just the right temperature at lunch…but if you don’t get around to drinking it – no problem…put it back on the shelf (it will last 6 – 9 months).

According to the Journal of Pediatrics, dairy and calcium intakes are inadequate in four- to 18-year-olds. In fact, only 30 percent of the US population two years of age and older get the recommended level of calcium or more. Plus, most kids do not get enough Vitamin D, potassium and protein, either. The good news -- all of these important nutrients are found in shelf safe milk.
