Milk Matters

I will be the first to admit that I am not a huge milk drinker. Not because I don't like it, but because I always choose something else. But, I am a huge supporter of all dairy products. And I want to make sure my daughter gets her milk. I know how important milk is for my growing girl, and if you don't have a lot of time on this Saturday here is a quick run down of what milk has to offer!

Where My Milk Is From

 This is a pretty neat resource for all you out there who may be dating a dairy farmer!

 Check out this website to track just where your Dairy product comes from.

I thought it was so cool I had to get all the Dairy products out of my fridge and start searching!
Then, when I was all finished I poured myself a glass of milk and said a prayer of thanks to all the Dairy farmers out there...Milking is a lot of work!
