Milk’s essential nutrients can be difficult to replace in a healthy eating pattern. Every 8-ounce glass of milk provides you with nine essential nutrients like high-quality protein, calcium, vitamin D and more. These nutrients help our bodies function properly. For example, protein helps rebuild and repair muscle tissue while calcium and vitamin D help support and maintain strong bones and teeth.
