Grab a glass of milk, a pint of Blue Bell or a wedge of cheese because it’s time to celebrate National Dairy Month!

There are so many things to love that involve dairy products.

If it weren’t for milk, we wouldn’t have creamy macaroni and cheese, banana splits, cheesecakes or pizza.  Imagine a world without pizza. Or ice cream.

I don’t know how I would have survived college without them.

Milk helps to build strong bones and teeth, and it helps to reduce a person’s risk of bone disease and fractures.

According to the Got Milk? campaign, a protein naturally occurring in milk can also improve your quality of sleep and can help you maintain healthy hair, skin and nails.

Who wouldn’t love more restful sleep, sleek, shiny hair and strong bones?

And don’t forget, there’s always the added benefit of being able to drink chocolate milk or indulge in a cool vanilla shake on a hot summer day.

Where would with be without the dairy industry?

In a brittle-boned, dull-haired, ice cream-less place. And no one wants that. Right?

So let’s celebrate National Dairy Month the best way we know how–with dairy! Enjoy!
