This week on Facebook I saw a fun Infographic from The Breakfast Project by America's Milk Processors. The inforgraphic shows you how much of each drink you get for one quarter and what nutrients it contains.
I am notoriously a bad breakfast eater and also a horrible milk drinker! I always got special treatment as a kid and negotiated with my mom that my glass of milk at breakfast was the milk that I would use in my cereal. Thus I only had to have one glass of milk instead of two. I know...horrible child especially since I wouldn't always drink the leftover milk in the bowl.
Since then I have slightly improved my feelings towards milk. I can handle skim milk if it is super cold or chocolate milk. I really appreciate the information that they have provided and think an 8oz glass is quite manageable. When I have chocolate milk in the house I have been known to have a small glass of that before heading to work. I should work harder to switch to skim milk and getting more calcium in since sadly I am approaching my mid-30's and I want to avoid osteoporosis for sure.
Thoughts? Do you include milk in your daily breakfast?
