Raise a toast to marvellous milk! #WorldMilkDay

Celebrate milk today for #WorldMilkDay.

Great Britain is one of the leading nations in the world when it comes to milk consumption, and today is joining 29 other countries in celebrating World Milk Day.

 

With milk appearing in 98 per cent of fridges across the country, the Dairy Council tested the general public on some facts about the dairy product.

 

From asking about nutrients found in a glass of milk, to asking how many Brissel sprouts you would have to eat to obtain the same amount of calcium as a glass of milk (a whopping 63 sprouts) - the country is being reacquainted with the nutritious product we have been drinking for 11,000 years.

 

Dr Anne Mullen, director of nutrition at The Dairy Council, said: "What became clear is that, whilst many of us recognise that milk is a healthy and nutritious, there are actually so many nutrients and minerals contained in one portion of milk that it is almost impossible to remember them all!

 

"We are delighted that the public is so supportive of dairy. Milk is one of the most nutritious, and delicious, foods in the British diet and it plays a crucial role in leading a healthy diet at all stages of life."
