Americans don’t eat enough dairy

Americans seem to have forgotten that dairy is good for you. A report from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) revealed that the diets of 85% of Americans fall short of the current USA dairy recommendations.

Most Americans need just one more serving of dairy a day to meet the standards set in the guidelines. “Dairy foods are delicious, nutritious and an affordable choice for today’s families”, said Lindsey Stevenson, nutrition and health specialist, University of Missouri Extension. The Dietary Guidelines published by USDA and HHS calls for families to increase their intake of low-fat or fat-free milk, cheese, and yoghurt, with a goal of three servings daily for persons who are nine and older.
