Family-Friendly Meals Made with Milk

08/31/2015 03:34AM ● Published by Family Features

Milk is not only a fridge staple; it’s an essential part of American lives. It’s so important that, according to a new consumer survey conducted by Wakefield Research, 82 percent of American parents say they would make a separate trip to the store if they ran out of milk – and for good reason.

After all, milk is packed with essential nutrients like calcium, protein, vitamins A, D and B12, riboflavin, phosphorus and potassium.

Milk is also a versatile kitchen ingredient that has many uses beyond the cereal bowl. So when you’re looking to whip up recipes like Macaroni & Cheese with Cauliflower and Chicken Dijon, make sure to reach for fresh, quality DairyPure milk. The only farm-to-fridge milk backed by an exclusive Five-Point Purity Promise, DairyPure milk contains no artificial growth hormones, is tested for antibiotics, is continually quality tested to ensure purity, only comes from cows fed a healthy diet and is cold shipped fresh from your local dairy. So you know that it starts pure and stays pure.
