I took the pledge not just because I'm a dairy
farmer but to re-enforce my commitment to improving my health and following
the 2015 Dietary Guideline's nutritional recommendation. I'll admit, it's probably
the easiest pledge I can make since there is such a large variety of dairy to choose from!
Including dairy in the recipes I prepare for my family is one of the best
ways to keep my pledge and make sure we're all getting the needed servings of dairy.
