Dairy can do it all. It has a place at the table from breakfast through dessert because it’s a great source of protein and other essential nutrients, not to mention it’s undeniably delicious in all its many forms.
Celebrations surrounding dairy formally began in 1937 when June was declared National Milk Month in an attempt to increase demand due to a surplus. Within a couple years, the event was renamed National Dairy Month as a means of promoting the wide array of ways dairy products could be enjoyed.
