Dairy products’ consumption is of great importance for children's growth, since they contain a variety of essential nutrients, including vitamins (such as vitamin A, D and B-complex vitamins) and minerals, such as calcium and phosphorus (which are necessary for skeletal growth), as well as potassium.
Dietary patterns adopted all around the world incorporate the consumption of dairy products on a daily basis. This applies not only to adults but also to children and adolescents, since dairy products are rich in high biological value proteins and constitute the most important dietary source of calcium. Calcium is a nutrient that helps strengthen and maintain healthy bones and teeth throughout lifespan. It is involved in skeletal growth and protects from fractures due to osteoporosis, a disease characterized by fragile bones in adults. Milk and yogurt are the richest sources of calcium and provide about 55% of a child’s daily calcium needs. Thus, parents need to ensure that these foods are included in their children’s daily diet.
Maternal diet during pregnancy is of special importance both for the proper growth of the fetus and for the health status of the pregnant woman. Among other dietary practices, habitual consumption of dairy products constitutes a significant part of a balanced diet during pregnancy.
Specifically, a pregnant woman should consume 4-6 servings of dairy products on a daily basis. One serving of dairy products provides 300 mg of calcium and is equivalent to one of the following:
- 1 cup of milk (250 ml)
- 200 grams of yogurt
- 30 grams of cheese
