May 09, 2012 - Building strong families can be easier when you serve cool dairy foods.

Foods in the dairy group supply most of the calcium that families need, as well as provide important protein, vitamins and minerals.

Calcium plays a major role in maintaining good health. Research shows it can help increase bone density, decreasing your chances of developing osteoporosis. Calcium can also help lower blood pressure and help you achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that nine out of 10 women and seven out of 10 men fail to meet the recommended calcium requirements of two to three servings a day, and more than half of children do not get enough calcium. Children ages 1 to 3 need two servings of dairy, ages 4 to 8 need three, and ages 9 to 18 need four servings daily.

A single serving of delicious, wholesome, calcium-rich foods includes:

• 1 cup milk, yogurt, pudding or frozen yogurt.

• 1½ ounces natural cheese — cheddar, Swiss, et cetera.

• 2 ounces processed cheese — American slices.

• 2 cups cottage cheese.

• 1½ cups ice cream.

• 1⁄2 cup ricotta cheese

Try this tasty snack that will keep your herd mooing for more:

1 8-ounce cup vanilla yogurt

1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened

1⁄2 jar marshmallow cream
