Hahn’s Yogurt & Cream Cheese On-Trend with New Federal Dietary Guidelines

February 21st, 2011 (franklin)

Dietary Guidelines for AmericansAccording to the IDFA the new 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans  encourages 3 daily servings of low-fat or fat-free milk and milk products for adults and children 9 years and older. For children ages 4-8, the recommendation was increased from 2-2.5 servings, and for children ages 2-3, the recommendation remains 2 servings. The dairy food group (milk, cheese and yogurt) is a substantial contributor of many nutrients in the U.S. diet that are important for good health, including calcium, potassium, phosporus, magnesium, zinc, protein, vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin B12 and riboflavin.

Hahn’s Yogurt & Cream Cheese fits right into the new guidelines and national efforts to curb obesity in schools because it has 60% less fat, 60% less saturated fat, 55% less cholesterol and 30% less sodium and delivers four times more calcium per serving than regular cream cheese.
