Score a Touchdown with Dairy This Fall

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 18:06:18 CDT

Score a Touchdown with Dairy This Fall Tailgating offers a wonderful time to get together with friends and family, eat great food, but don't forget the milk. Dairy MAX is encouraging consumers to include milk and dairy products in their tailgate by offering cheese, yogurt and milk at your team events this fall. Dairy MAX spokesperson Susan Allen encourages consumers to bring on the milk.

"You know our future hall of famers, our kids and even us, we don't get the three servings that we need every day, so don't forget to pack a cooler full of milk," Allen said.

Milk has become more widely available with convenient, single serving milk products and Allen said some products are even shelf stable, so parents don't have to worry about the drink becoming warm. If you have kids, she recommends creating a do-it-yourself tailgate-able.   Inside a box, she includes all the different food groups with cheese, grapes or strawberries, carrots, pretzels and milk. The American Academy of Pediatrics only recommends only two drinks for kids, Allen said this includes milk at meals and water in between. She said other drinks can pack on calories, but no nutrients, so make sure you nourish your kids with milk.

Dairy MAX recently launched a new website, called "DairyDiscoveryZone.com" to connect with consumers. The site offers a wide variety of recipes, like a dairy farm family favorite "Slow-Cooker Chili". She said adding cheese, sour cream or even Greek yogurt is a great way to add calcium and other nutrients and it will fuel you throughout the game. She recommends kids and adults checkout the Dairy Discovery Zone website for valuable information.

"You know you can connect with our dairy farmers with their family stories on there and great recipes," Allen said. "You can learn about myths and the truth about those myths, lots of great things on that website."

The Dairy MAX Dairy Discovery Zone mobile exhibit will also be on the road at several state fairs, including the New Mexico State Fair and the State Fair of Texas this fall. Dairy MAX represents dairy farmers from Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico and southwest Kansas.
