Date:12/15/2008

BOISE, Idaho, Dec. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- With rising food costs, many families are economizing on groceries but one thing they should not cut back on is nutrition. At about 25 cents per 8-ounce glass, on a gallon basis, milk offers more nutrients per penny than almost any other beverage option in the supermarket -- proving key vitamins and minerals like calcium and vitamin D that are important for the entire family.

Other beverages fall short on nutrients and can cost up to seven times the amount of one serving of milk.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved a health claim that will urge Americans to boost their intakes of calcium and vitamin D for bone health, suggesting that "adequate calcium and vitamin D throughout life, as part of a well-balanced diet, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis."

Nutritionist Dr. Keith Ayoob, author of "The Uncle Sam Diet," which outlines a healthy eating style for families based on the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, notes that milk remains one of the best ways boost calcium and vitamin
