Smoothies & Milk

Without milk in your diet it is really hard to get enough nutrients. Decades of research supports the benefits of drinking milk. Kids ages 9 to 18 need 3 cups of milk a day. Data suggest that 60% of boys and 83% of girls are not drinking enough milk. This means they are not getting nutrients to grow. Its really hard to replace the nutrients from milk.

A smoothie is a great way to add more milk to your diet. Registered dietitian from the website Milk Life, Chere Bork, shows us ways to do this with smoothies – in various forms. For recipes and more tips visit
