National Milk Day

I can’t believe it! There really is a National Day for just about every food out there! Today is the day to honor none other than MILK! Unlike many holdiay’s there actually is a logical reason on why today is National Milk Day. Apparently (although no one is really completely sure) on January 11, 1878, the milk was first delivered in bottles. According to Practically Edible, “Glass bottles allowed milk to be delivered in sanitary conditions to customers. Before that, it was brought round in large milk cans, often open to the elements, and you’d bring your pail and they’d ladle out what you wanted.”  2%, 1%, Skim, Vitamin D, Chocolate Milk, Soy Milk, Organic Milk- no matter how you take it, don’t forget: Milk- it does a body good! Go ahead and poor yourself an ice cold glass of milk, dunk an Oreo cookie in a glass of milk, or sip the milk in the bottom of your bowl of cereal! Whichever way you decide to celebrate this day- your body will thank you for it.
