Parents Guide - List Of Dairy Drinks And Foods

Maggie LaBarbera • RN, MBA • Nov 12, 2012
 

The dairy food group is made of all foods that are predominantly made from milk.

Most milk products are found in the refrigerated section of the supermarket.  These foods are usually pasteurized and have a specific shelf life so always check the date.  Once milk is opened, it can spoil easily if not kept refrigerated.

There are some milk products that are kept in the freezer section like ice cream and frozen yogurt.  

Some packaged milk products like ready to eat puddings made with milk and canned or powdered milk will be found on the shelf.  These milk products have been specially preserved so they do not need to go into the refrigerator until opened.

 

Here is a list of the foods you can find in the refrigerated section of the grocery store.
