Milk is Healthy

Drink To Your Office Health

Milk is one of the richest sources of calcium in the Australian diet and is best known for the essential role it plays in building healthy teeth and bones.

To get the same amount of calcium as one 250ml serve of milk, you’ll need to eat 32 brussell sprouts, 10 cups of raw chopped spinach or one cup of dry roasted almonds!

Cheese is commonly thought of as the other good source of calcium but one cup of cheese is the equivalent in calcium to one cup of milk, yet it contains 10 times the saturated fat!

Milk provides a unique package of essential nutrients, including protein, making it a hunger-busting, healthy drink that helps you feel fuller for longer! Take a look at these amazing nutrients and how they benefit the workplace – thank goodness for milk!
