Dairy West Promotes Dairy Days of Summer
SALT LAKE CITY-Dairy West, an organization promoting dairy goods for milk producers in Utah and Idaho, is celebrating Dairy Days of Summer throughout the month of June. This summer-long event aims to highlight the importance of dairy in daily life.
Promoting Active and Healthy Lifestyles
Dairy West recognizes Utah as the country’s most physically active state, and dairy products can play a significant role in maintaining a balanced and nutritious diet. Consuming dairy goods provides essential vitamins and minerals like vitamin D and potassium, which are crucial for a healthy immune system and muscle function.
Milk, yogurt, cheese, and other dairy products offer numerous health benefits such as reducing the risk of disease, curbing inflammation, boosting the immune system, and aiding in post-exercise recovery.
Supporting Growth and Development
Dairy products are not only important for young people’s development but also affordable, convenient, and suitable for busy lifestyles. Research shows that dairy products are rich sources of calcium, which is essential for building and maintaining strong bones and teeth, especially during childhood and adolescence.
Embracing the Goodness of Dairy
Dairy Days of Summer encourages individuals and families to explore the wide range of dairy products available and embrace their nutritional benefits. During the month of June, retail stores offer numerous deals on dairy products, making them accessible and affordable for Utah families.
Dairy farmers play a critical role in providing safe and nutritious food to the world.
