Milk is an excellent source of calcium, and it’s also fortified with vitamin D, making it one of the only dietary sources of the vitamin, which we otherwise create by absorbing sunlight.

In addition to being a nutritious food, milk is used in so many different recipes that if you plan your meals, it shouldn’t be hard to finish off a gallon a week cooking for a hungry family.
