Date:10/29/2007

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

ST. LOUIS, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ --

WHO: The Maples family was the grand prize winner of the Think About

Your Drink Family Challenge among hundreds of families nationwide.

WHAT: The Maples family 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. As grand prize winners, the Maples family will receive

a family trip to Walt Disney World!

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.( )

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( ) 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)
