Milk centerpiece of new beverage guidelines

Milk's primary role in the new guidelines for millions of American children means a great economic opportunity for Door Peninsula dairy farmers. The new Healthy Drinks, Healthy Kids guidelines say that water and milk should be the primary beverages for young kids. UW-Extension Kewaunee Nutrition Educator Kaila Stencil says the key is avoiding added sugars. Consumers are about to get help with that.


Because so much of the dietary intake for toddlers and infants is liquid based, what beverages are consumed affects health as much as what is eaten. Previous guidelines from the USDA suggested limiting juice and sugary drinks but that is a far cry from the new advice to stick to small servings or to thin it out using water.
