We love dairy in our home! It comes in all varieties – milk, chocolate milk, yogurt, eggs, whipped cream, and more!  During the summer months, we love to play outside.  With the warmer weather, the boys love to come in and drink a glass of milk (sometimes chocolate) or eat some yogurt.  Not to mention sliced cheddar cheese and crackers or string cheese for a snack.

Going on road trips is fun too!  We just pack up an ice cooler or insulated tote pack, pop in a freezer pack, and bring gogurts, sliced cheese with summer sausage and crackers, some fruit, and drinks for a healthy snack on the way to our destination.

We also love dairy in our meals, whether it’s a casserole with cheese, cheesy eggs for breakfast, or ice cream for dessert.  Dairy definitely plays an important role in the healthy eating habits in our family.

June is National Dairy Month, so be sure to check out the different dairy products on sale at your local Safeway (also known as Vons and Pavilions)!  There is also a fun website where you can look at different dairy recipes, tips on using dairy, healthy dairy facts, and a chance to win a trip for four to your favorite National Park!

Check out Safeway’s website as well for some great money-saving coupons!

    I think Dairy is beloved by many xD

    My family and I are pretty sensitive when dairy comes into play, but that doesn’t stop us from eating and drinking it anyway! Lol My favorite has to be cheese-I LOVE the stuff!

    you had me at whipped cream and cheese 🙂

  3. I’ve always been a yogurt eater but I’ve recently discovered my kids absolutely love it. They prefer it as a snack to most other things. I need to try freezing it – I’m sure that would go over really well.
