It’s Time to Get Real With Milk

Guest blogger, Jessica Peters, is a 5th generation dairy farmer in northwest Pennsylvania.

The last few years have seen a major shift in how Americans feel about their health. Because of the health concerns of generations before them, millennials are more concerned than ever with what they put into their bodies. But are they heading down the right track? For years, doctors have been pushing low fat diets, but is fat really the enemy? Typically, we think more calories in a food are bad. But more and more research is showing that consuming nutrient-dense foods, that can be higher in calories, is actually beneficial for your body.

Choose PA Dairy!

If you’re like us, you grew-up knowing the nutritious benefits of milk to our health and our families. Drinking milk and having cheese, yogurt and ice cream was just a part of a daily diet. And driving by the local dairy farms and interacting with the farmers in the community was an important part in knowing were our food came from.
