MilkPEP: New Haven Area Families Win Nationwide got milk? Contest
Date:10/29/2007

Local residents show America how they 'Think About Their Drink'

NEW HAVEN, Conn., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ --

WHO: Two New Haven area families, the Bunossos and the Hazzams, were

among the 25 winning families selected in the Think About Your

Drink Family Challenge from hundreds of entrants nationwide.

WHAT: The Bunossos and Hazzams separately entered the photo contest by

submitting a creative snapshot of their gangs choosing

nutrient-rich milk. As part of a nationwide education campaign,

the nation's milk processors launched the Think About Your Drink

Family Challenge encouraging families around the country to make

milk their beverage of choice. The families will each receive the

royal treatment with healthy chef-prepared meals, along with a

glass of milk, delivered to their homes for an entire week!

WHERE: Visit http://www.thinkaboutyourdrink.com to check out Family

Challenge winning photo entries and utilize tools to help you and

your loved ones make better beverage choices. Plus, you can also

get a free, personalized nutrition analysis of your daily drinks

and see how beverage choice can impact the nutrition of a typical

family dinner.

WHY: Over the past decade, milk at dinner has steadily declined and

today nearly 60 percent of children's dinners do not include milk,

according to new findings from The NPD Group.(1)

Many experts are concerned, especially since the percentage of

overweight American children and teens has tripled in the last two

decades and a recent report called What America Drinks (2)

suggests that beverage choice may impact weight and the overall

quality of the diet. Research shows drinking the recommended

three servings of lowfat or fat free milk everyday is an important

part of a healthy diet for parents and their kids, and may also

contribute toward maintaining a healthy weight. (3-9)
