As the winter months continue, people often look for ways to warm up. For some, a nice hot beverage does the trick to warm them up from the inside out. These include hot cocoa, hot chocolate, tea, hot apple cider, and the year long favorite, coffee. Joyce Fikri, Nutrition Educator at the St. Louis Dairy Council said coffee by itself doesn't really have any nutritional value, but by adding milk or cream to the drink, people can attain many of their necessary daily nutrients.
Coffee's high caffeine is a large reason people drink it daily, but it's also a reason people don't. Fikri said the key is to drink it in moderation to avoid things like jitters, or caffeine headaches.
