Theresa Nicklas, professor at Children's Nutrition Research Center, Baylor College of Medicine  in Houston, Texas, reminded readers of USA Today that dairy foods are part of a healthy diet in her recent letter to the editor.

Nicklas wrote in response to the newspaper’s article regarding lactose intolerance.

She noted that “It is difficult to get the recommended calcium and potassium in the diet without including dairy. A large percentage of Americans 2 years old and older are not consuming adequate amounts of calcium and potassium.”
