The Malaysian Dietary Guidelines recommend children and adolescent consume 2-3 servings of milk, and milk products everyday. Dairy products contain calcium, protein, Vitamins B2 and B12, and more. But, do you know why calcium from milk sources is so important?
Dairy products such as milk, yoghurt, and cheese are rich natural sources of calcium. Although non-dairy foods like spinach and broccoli naturally contain calcium, these options typically have much lower levels of it. Additionally, calcium in these foods is not as bioavailable, so it’s not absorbed as well as the calcium in dairy products.1
Calcium helps children form stronger bones and teeth as 99% of the body’s calcium supply is stored in the bones and teeth where it supports their structure and function.2
The good news is yoghurt is such a versatile and delicious food option that you can make it a regular on the menu even for your kids! And, Farmers Union has just introduced the kids’ yoghurt range in Malaysia.

The Farmers Union kids’ range is made from Australian Milk, live cultures and contains the goodness of calcium for growing teeth and bones.
Suitable for kids aged 6 and above, the range offers 4 natural flavours: strawberry, mango, honey and vanilla.
