Healthy Weights

Canadians are heavier now than ever before. The prevalence of overweight individuals and obesity has increased markedly in the past two decades. Changes in dietary and fitness habits, such as over-consumption and an increased sedentary lifestyle, have significantly contributed to the weight-gain epidemic.

Milk and milk products are a key source of calcium and other bone building nutrients such as vitamin D, magnesium, phosphorus and protein. Fluid milk is fortified with vitamin D. A healthy eating plan, which includes calcium and vitamin D along with daily activity will help prevent osteoporosis. Aim for 2-4 servings of milk and milk products each day.
