Milk Directory

Milk is an excellent source of calcium, potassium, and vitamin D, and is helpful in building strong bones and maintaining or even losing weight. There are a variety of types of milk to suit any dietary need: soy milk, low-fat, whole, skim, and many more! It's well known that often today's kids and adults need more vitamin D. More people are at risk for osteoporosis because of low intake of calcium and/or vitamin D. Milk is a major source of these nutrients. But beware of drinking too much high-fat milk -- your weight could creep up on you. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about the benefits of milk, how to get more milk in your diet, and much more.
