Extension cord: Dairy provides vital nutrients for the body

For decades, all across America, a knock at the door meant either a friend had arrived to visit or, better yet, the milkman was there, bearing his weekly deliveries. Though home milk delivery — and the nostalgic glass bottles it came in — had largely disappeared by the 1960s, our thirst for the beverage (and the endless nutrients and creamy flavor it provides) remained strong. Many of us were raised drinking milk with every meal (thanks, mom and dad!), and we can probably recall our own favorite milk moments: pairing milk with a freshly baked cookie or a classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich, or, come winter, warming up with hot chocolate made with milk and topped with mini marshmallows.
