No. 1* Milk for your 1st Meal of the Day
Dutch Lady Malaysia highlights need for Malaysians to get a calcium boost from milk daily
Nothing kick-starts a day like a hearty breakfast, but the first meal of the day is incomplete without a yummy beverage to wash it down. Luckily for us Malaysians, we are spoilt for choice when it comes to breakfast drinks. While some of us prefer to sip coffee or tea to give our sleepy bodies a jolt, others lift their mornings with malt beverage or juices.
However, studies have shown that milk is the elixir our bodies need at breakfast.
“After about eight to 12 hours from your last meal, a glass of milk provides the nourishment your body needs in the morning to regulate itself,” said Ashlee Ng, marketing director of Dutch Lady Milk Industries Berhad.
“Besides, Malaysians are not getting enough calcium from their daily food intake. Nearly one in two children does not have adequate calcium intake*; and the average intake of calcium among adults comes up to less than half of our daily requirement**,” added Ng.
The nutritional gap may lead to a brittle nation. Hence, Dutch Lady Malaysia encourages Malaysian families to load up on milk before work or school. Just two servings a day helps meet a family’s nutritional requirements! Having one of the two servings at breakfast pumps at least 200mg of calcium into the body.
Milk, the motherlode of calcium, helps children to develop strong bones and teeth. It is also the key to locking in healthy bone mass for adults, even during their golden ages. In other words, the creamy beverage builds strong families.
Indeed, a balanced breakfast paired with milk is the backbone of a physically and emotionally strong family and advocating breakfast with Malaysia’s No. 1 milk*** -- Dutch Lady PureFarm milk is none other than its ambassador, the debonair Aaron Aziz.
“As the saying goes, a family that eats together, stays together. Having calcium-rich milk at breakfast not only fortifies my family physically, it gives us the time to talk with each other and share a dose of family love before we start our day. This cements our bond as a family. So if I am not sleeping in or at work, my wife Diyana and I would definitely enjoy breakfast together with our kids!” he said.
