May Is Osteoporosis Awareness Month

May is Osteoporosis Awareness Month and research shows that dairy foods are integral for building and maintaining a lifetime of healthy bones because of the nutrients they contain like calcium, protein, vitamin D, phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium.  Kelsey Bentlage, with the St. Louis District Dairy Council, says that it all comes down to 1-2-3. 



Bentlage says that it is important as children to be able to consume enough dairy to make bones stronger. A lot of that bone support can come from calcium. 


Bentlage says there are many ways to get your daily dairy fix!



Bentlage says their website www.stldairycouncil.org has many tips on dairy and bone health.  



Kelsey Bentlage appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show.
