Many of us are asking this question. After reading this article you will decide for yourself and start drinking milk.
A well-balanced diet is a prerequisite for human health. This is an old truth proclaimed by the father of Hippocrates medicine as early as the 4th century BC, but unfortunately today, often in the noise of information, we lose a common sense approach to the principles of proper nutrition and instead of following the guidelines of the Institute of Food and Nutrition – the European scientific institution developing these principles, we prefer to entrust our health to self-appointed nutrition experts and apply irrational and harmful diets in line with a new philosophy – dietism.
While adults themselves will suffer from such nutritional errors, we, as a society, are committed to sound health education and therefore recommend free education programmes such as ‘We have a cat on milk’, which is completely free of charge for schools thanks to funding from the Milk Promotion Fund.
Let us start from the fact that milk and milk products in their composition contain elements such as Zn, Fe, I, Se, Co, Mo, F, Mn, Cu, they are called trace elements, because the human body does not need them in large quantities. However, a certain dose of these elements must be delivered to our body. Failure to cover the body’s demand for microelements causes disturbances in the body’s functioning and delays in its mental and physical development, which is not welcome in all of us.
Moving on, dairy products are rich in vitamins B, A, D, E and K, which improve immunity, namely build up the natural immunity of our body. In addition, vitamin A provides a good vision, which is welcomed by students, and is also essential for the formation of dental enamel. Vitamin K ensures proper coagulation of blood and prevents internal bleeding. Vitamin E, on the other hand, has an antioxidant effect and prevents ageing of the skin. Additionally, milk is rich in minerals such as calcium, sodium, potassium and phosphorus. These elements increase the immunity of the organism and thus contribute to the proper functioning of the organism. Moreover, phosphorus and calcium are responsible for healthy and strong bones.
Breakfast and the presence of highly nutritious products in the student’s diet are immensely important for eating habits, and cow’s milk and cow’s milk products are the most valuable and easily assimilated sources of calcium and protein. The nutritional properties of cow’s milk are indisputable. Milk proteins are easily digestible and contain exogenous amino acids that the human body cannot produce on its own.
Importantly, milk is a cheap and widely available product. It is particularly recommended in the diet of children and adolescents. Milk is one of the most valuable foods at your disposal.
