June is National Dairy Month and to help inform families on how to keep a balanced diet while school is out, we have Ashley Jenkins from Meadow Gold Dairies along with their Ambassadors Lani Moo and Calci Calcium to give us a healthy recipe that you can make at home with your kids. Ashley, why is it so important for families to focus on getting dairy in their diet? Ashley Jenkins: With school being out it's a critical time for children. Studies have shown that they are at a higher risk of both obesity and hunger. And with it being National Dairy Month we wanted to show families a fun and healthy recipe they can make at home to keep Dairy apart of their diet even while school is out. What will you be making? Ashley Jenkins: We will be making a POG-licious Smoothie: In a blender, combine POG, milk, vanilla extract, sugar, and ice. Blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve. It's simple and easy parents and kids to make together. If families are lactose intolerant then they can replace the milk with Dairy Ease, a lactose free milk to still get the Calcium and Vitamins their body need.
