What are the health benefits of dairy foods?

Enjoying three servings of milk, cheese or yogurt is a delicious way to help build stronger bones and healthier bodies with a powerful package of nutrients. Milk contains nine essential nutrients, including protein, calcium, phosphorus, vitamins A and D, and four B vitamins: B2, B3, B5 and B12 (riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid and cyanocobalamin). Studies show that dairy foods, when eaten as part of a healthy diet, improve overall diet quality and may help reduce the risk of osteoporosiscardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and Type 2 diabetes.
