Milk and strong bones
Strong bones and teeth are built from calcium. To get enough calcium into
your body is to eat three portions of milk, yoghurt or cheese every day. Milk
has protein for growth and repair. It contains calcium, essential for strong
bones. It provides energy and lots of vitamins.
Milk and teeth
Bacteria in your mouth changes sugar from your food into acid. This acid
then attacks your teeth and forms holes. Milk is low in acid, so your teeth are
safe with milk. Cheese can protect teeth as it helps produce more saliva - your
mouths own defense against tooth decay.
