Food and beverages to build stronger bodies.

From the classroom to your commute. From birth to old age. Our foods and beverages give you the fuel you need to live life to its fullest, packed with essential nutrients and vitamins to keep you healthy.

Just three servings a day of low-fat or fat-free dairy is an easy, inexpensive way to nourish your body and live fresh, well-fueled and full of life.

From stronger bones to fuel for muscle growth

A natural source of calcium

Milk isn’t just for the schoolyard. Your bones reform through your entire life, making dairy’s bone-building calcium essential at every stage.

Packed with protein

With quality proteins to support a healthy body, foods like cottage cheese and milk make a nutritious, delicious snack or addition to a meal.

Full of other important nutrients

In addition to calcium and protein, and Vitamins A & D, an 8 oz. glass of milk has as much potassium as a small banana, and is chock full of B vitamins like B12, Riboflavin and Niacin.
