MISSION, KS -- (Marketwired) -- 07/28/14 -- (Family Features) Dairy and breakfast go hand in hand. With so many types of milk, cheeses and yogurts available, it's easy to find breakfast combinations that set the curve for success as the kids head back to school this fall.
Children who eat a morning meal perform better in the classroom and have better overall nutrition. Research shows that kids who eat breakfast have better memory, attention and behavior, and score higher on tests.
In addition to the wide variety of dairy foods that make school day breakfasts easy, dairy also gets an A-plus for nutritional and economic value. Dairy delivers a unique package of nine essential nutrients in a variety of tasty and affordable options. For example, one 8-ounce glass of milk delivers calcium, potassium and vitamin D and costs only about 25 cents.
Recognizing the important role breakfast and dairy foods play for school children and their success in the classroom, dairy farmers and milk processors nationwide have organized the Great American Milk Drive, a Feeding America program to deliver gallons of milk to hungry families who need it most. To donate, text "Milk" to 27722 or visit milklife.com/give.
Meanwhile, to boost breakfast success for your family this school year, consider these tips:
- Keep breakfast foods on hand such as ready-to-eat cereals, yogurts, white and flavored milks, and fruit.
- Build a breakfast burrito bar. Prepare toppings such as shredded cheese, diced ham, tomatoes and olives the night before. In the morning, just scramble eggs, warm tortillas and fill with your favorite toppings.
- Save money on dairy foods by buying milk by the gallon, cheese in block form and shredding it yourself, and plain, low-fat yogurt by the quart and stirring in your own flavorings, such as honey or fresh fruit.
- Whip up a yogurt smoothie or build a yogurt parfait, such as this recipe for a Fruit Salsa Yogurt Parfait provided by the Midwest Dairy Council. Or, bring more smiles to the table with the Fruity Splash Smoothie.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
