Today is National Milk Day, marking the anniversary of the first day milk was delivered in bottles on January 11, 1878. Not many of us still get milk delivered to our doors, but everyone still loves the classic beverage for its great taste, versatility and wholesome nutrition. In addition to the traditional glass of milk, people today enjoy a range of other varieties and alternatives, such as lactose-free, soy and almond.
The changing leaves and cooling temperatures of the fall season also bring back-to-school and holidays, two occasions that lend themselves to time spent with family around the table. Holiday meals are joyous, memorable affairs, and dinnertime on a school night is just as important. After all, family meals are an integral part of togetherness and well-being. Sitting around the table is important for families, as it’s a unique chance for parents and kids to interact with one another and share, learn and grow.

Yogurts can also star in sweet and savory dishes or of course, be eaten on its own with a scoop of granola.
