Is Your Teen Getting Enough Milk?

It was found that in a study with 1500 participants conducted by the University of Minnesota that teens in high school decreased their calcium intake. In fact more than 1/2 of boys and 2/3 of girls were not getting the recommended daily amount. Its crucial to get enough calcium and vitamin D at this stage in life to ensure peak bone mass is reached.
1300mg/day is needed for high school students and 1000mg for young adults.
Encourage a glass of milk with dinner, a refreshing fruit smoothie or calcium fortified orange juice to help get this vital mineral.

Oh and my little one has a rash took her to the Dr. she has a viral illness poor darling so its actually a wee bit more than teething, smoothies are great for her right now LOL
