In commemoration of National Dairy Month, Tetra Pak encourages American families to think differently about their dairy consumption habits. To kick off the month-long observance, the Vernon Hills-based sustainable dairy packaging manufacturer has released a “Daily Dairy” calendar full of nutritional facts and fun tips about milk and its benefit to a healthy lifestyle.

To combat the national nutritional challenge, families are invited to visit www.tetrapakusa.com to discover simple solutions to consuming calcium, even while on the go.

"Busy parents are always looking for ways to incorporate nutrition, convenience and fun into their kids' meals," said Sheniqua Little, dairy category manager for Tetra Pak. "Tetra Pak helps to do this with packaging and processing solutions that make foods and beverages shelf-stable – last for several weeks – without preservatives or refrigeration required. Parents can now add more milk to their kids' diets when they are away from home. Together with our customers, we're committed to helping consumers better understand the packaging behind the products they buy and the benefits cartons can bring to their lifestyles."

Milk in shelf-stable form has the same taste as milk in the refrigerated aisle at the grocery store; it's just packaged and processed differently. Tetra Pak's shelf-stable milk boxes enable the product to retain its quality without refrigeration for up to several months from its production date. This allows families to purchase multiple units at once, while keeping unopened milk boxes for safe use in the pantry. And, consumers can always chill before opening, if they choose.

To download a PDF version of the “Daily Dairy” calendar, or to learn more about the benefits of milk boxes and other products in shelf-stable cartons, visit www.tetrapakusa.com. Plus, follow Tetra Pak on Twitter at www.twitter.com/milkmonthtips this month to learn even more about milk and important nutrition facts.
