While there may be some people who don’t like the taste of milk, and some may have allergies to it, but in general, milk is one of the basic essential foods in our daily lives. In fact, it is known to be one of the healthiest foods in the world, that’s why it is considered as a global food. It is packed with proteins, calcium, vitamins, potassium, healthy fats, and antioxidants. All of these nutrients are needed by our body’s immunity—babies and adults alike.
To celebrate these benefits and the significance of milk to our lives, and also as a way of thanking and helping the dairy industry that supports the livelihood of many, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations marked June 1 of every year as the World Milk Day, and we are celebrating its 21st anniversary this year.
Raise a glass of your favorite milk drink and . . . bottoms up!
