Dairy foods like milk, cheese, and yogurt are rich in calcium, protein, and vitamins to help build strong bones and teeth. Eating dairy foods can lower your risk of developing a disease called osteoporosis that occurs when bones become weak and break easily. Calcium also keeps your nerves, heart, and muscles healthy, and may help regulate your blood pressure.
