Dietitians Urge Parents to Serve 'Milk With Meals'
Date:12/4/2007

that only 37 percent of moms said their children drank milk with lunch.

Meanwhile, the majority of moms said they drank milk with meals when they were growing up, but now that they have their own families, only 14% said that "milk with meals" is the rule in their house. Studies on mothers and daughters show that moms' own food choices may be more influential than any other attempt to control their daughters' food intake. A mother's decision to drink milk more frequently and to eat more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains is likely to influence her daughter's choices.

"Moms need to take advantage of all the milk options available today," says Smythe. "Today's dairy case is stocked with low-fat, flavored and single-serve milks -- even fast food restaurants offer single-serve milk chugs with Happy Meals -- and they all offer the same great package of nutrients."

Milk with Meals Pledge

To urge parents to make milk the official beverage of family meals, the New York State Dietetic Association and the American Dairy Association are asking moms to sign a pledge at http://www.milkwithmeals.com. Those who sign the pledge will become part of the 3-A-Day(TM) of Dairy network and will receive healthy meal recipes, tips, suggestions, and offers. Those who sign up by February 15, 2008, will be entered into a drawing for a new refrigerator stocked with healthy foods and beverages selected by the New York State Dietetic Association. Three second-place prizes will be awarded for a free year's supply of milk.

The New York State Dietetic Association (NYSDA), with over 5,000 members, is one of the largest groups of nutrition professionals in New York State. NYSDA's members consist of Registered Dietitians (RDs), Dietetic Technicians, Registered (DTRs) and nutrition students. Our mission is to lead the future of the dietetics profession and its members, while serving the public through the prom
