MilkPEP: Salt Lake City Families Win Nationwide got milk? Contest
Date:10/29/2007

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

SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ --

WHO: Two Salt Lake City area families, the Israelsens and the Nymans,

were among the 25 winning families selected in the Think About

Your Drink Family Challenge among hundreds of families nationwide.

WHAT: The Israelsens and Nymans separately entered the photo contest by

submitting a creative snapshot of their gang 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 house 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).
