June is Dairy Month and the St. Louis District Dairy Council is promoting the benefits of implementing dairy in our daily meals.
Monica Nyman with the St. Louis District Dairy Council says we need three servings a day of dairy in our diets and the benefits from lowering your risks of heart disease and it's good for bone health.
One of the focuses of the Dairy Council in this Dairy Month of 2021 is to help the public better understand the difference between a traditional gallon of milk and what they term, alternative beverages.
If you visit the St. Louis District Dairy Council website, stldairycouncil.org, you'll find a resource that helps consumers understand the differences in these products.
The St. Louis District Dairy Council is also doing a lot of social media engagement giveaways this month. You can find them on most social media platforms by searching St. Louis District Dairy Council.
