GOT MILK? Just What A Meal Makeover Needs

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- National Nutrition Month ® is a great time for families to think about making healthier food choices. For many, change doesn't always come easy.  That's why the California Milk Processor Board (CMPB), the creator of GOT MILK?, has partnered with the registered dietitians from Dairy Council of California to show how making small changes to family-favorite recipes by incorporating natural, nutritious foods, like milk, can lead to a healthier diet.

"Milk is a real, simple ingredient that provides families with nine essential nutrients for strong bones, muscles, teeth, hair and nails," says Steve James, Executive Director of the CMPB.  "We hope that the recipes and tools we have developed with our partners at Dairy Council of California will enable families to enjoy their favorite dishes and drinks without sacrificing nutrition.

Available exclusively on www.gotmilk.com/recipes, the dietitians from the Dairy Council of California have created easy breakfast, lunch and dinner recipes that incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables, low-fat dairy, lean protein and whole grains into already family-favorite dishes and beverages.

Breakfast: Make it count, have a latte. Did you know that by drinking a 12-ounce latte instead of just plain coffee, you will be consuming one-third of your daily recommended calcium intake?

Lunch: Easy, inexpensive and homemade.  Chowders are lunch favorites.  By visiting the website, you can find a recipe for a healthy homemade Chicken Chowder that's low in sodium and substitutes heavy cream with low-fat milk.  It also has lean chicken and vegetables and can be served with whole-grain bread or crackers to complement the dish.

Dinner: Keep it light and easy.  Mac and Cheese is the ultimate comfort food. Try this all-American dish with a healthier twist.  Check out the Light & Easy Mac + Cheese recipe using whole wheat pasta and low fat milk.   The recipe also adds lean protein and vegetables to incorporate more vitamins and nutrients into this family favorite. 

For more information on the recipes and an interactive tool on how to shop, cook and eat healthier, visit www.gotmilk.com.

About the CMPB The California Milk Processor Board was established in 1993 to make milk more competitive and increase milk consumption in California. Awareness of GOT MILK? is over 90% nationally and it is considered one of the most important and successful campaigns in history.  GOT MILK? is a federally registered trademark that has been licensed by the national dairy boards since 1995.  The CMPB's Spanish-language campaign began in 1994 using the tagline "Familia, Amor y Leche" (Family, Love and Milk).  The TOMA LECHE (Drink Milk) campaign replaced it in 2006, following a growing trend in Hispanic food advertising that uses wit and humor to reach audiences.  GOT MILK? gifts and recipes can be viewed at www.gotmilk.com and www.tomaleche.com.  The CMPB is funded by all California milk processors and administered by the California Department of Food and Agriculture.
