Today is June 1st – The Start of National Dairy Month!
The best way to get the calcium you need is by eating and drinking foods that naturally contain calcium. Milk and other dairy products are good sources of calcium; they naturally offer the most calcium per serving. Other sources of calcium include tofu, legumes, some green leafy vegetables and calcium-fortified orange juice. There are so many ways to explore the dairy category at Price Chopper; whether it be specialty cheeses, ice cream, yogurt, new recipes like cheesy spinach and artichoke fondue, blueberry soy smoothies, cheese stuffed chicken drumsticks…are you hungry yet? Not only are dairy products delicious, they are an important part of eating healthy. Medical experts agree that optimal calcium intake during childhood, adolescence, and early adulthood can maximize genetically determined peak bone mass and slow bone loss that occurs with aging.
