Dairy in your Thanksgiving menu
In addition to being delicious and making you the star of Thanksgiving dinner, these recipes also contain dairy. Dairy is an essential part of many of our favorite Thanksgiving dishes. There is no need to feel guilty about serving your family these recipes since dairy contains essential nutrients and vitamins such as protein, calcium, and Vitamin D. These nutrients are essential for maintaining bone health, providing energy, and fostering immune system health.
On behalf of Connecticut’s Dairy Farmers, we wish you a happy Thanksgiving, and we are grateful for all the farmers who provide us with delicious and nutritious milk and dairy products every day.
