Milk is a nutrient-rich, white liquid food produced by the mammary glands of
mammals. It is the primary source of nutrition for infant mammals (including humans who are breastfed) before they are able to digest other types of food. Early lactation contains colostrum, which carries the mother’s antibodies to its young and can reduce the risk of many diseases. It contains many nutrients including protein and lactose. Interspecies consumption of milk is not uncommon, particularly among humans, many of whom consume the milk of other mammals.
The World Milk Day is celebrated on June 1 every year to acknowledge the important contributions of the dairy sector to sustainability, economic development, livelihoods and nutrition. The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) chose the day in 2001 to celebrate the important contributions by the dairy sector. Milk is high in nutrition and is the primary source of nutrition in children. It is a rich source of calcium, which is essential for the human body to bones and teeth healthy. Milk also contains vitamin D which helps the body absorb calcium and omega 3 fatty acids in milk help reduce the risk of diabetes and heart disease. Milk
