Splash Into Summer this June


Moo, moo its National Dairy Month! Dairy comes from the milk of mammals, most notably cow. Common dairy products include milk, cheese and yogurt which provide a rich source of calcium, vitamin D and potassium. Adequate calcium intake helps build stronger bones and decrease the risk of developing osteoporosis later in life. This is especially important for women; who are already at a greater risk of reduced bone density. Instead of a concentrated fruit juice or soda with your next meal, consume a carton of low fat milk available at every Dining Center on campus.  The summer solstice rings in the first day of summer in June as well! Celebrate the first day of summer by biting into a slice of juicy red watermelon. Watermelon is approximately 92% water, which will help keep you hydrated and make your stomach feel full.  This powerful fruit also contains the carotenoid lycopene that will act as an internal sunscreen and protect your skin from the sun’s strong UV rays.
