Did you know that June is National Dairy Month?! It began in 1937 as a National Milk Month promotion supported by the National Dairy Council and has been going ever since! That’s more than a 70 year history! Wow!
With two growing boys, it probably comes as no surprise that we have a lot of dairy products around! In fact, we often have two or more different types of the same “product”! Whole organic milk with DHA for the little one and 1% or skim milk for the older crowd; plain yogurt, “kid” yogurt, greek yogurt; and a whole slew of cheese (we like cheese a lot)–string cheese, parmesan cheese, shredded cheese, and our beloved Tillamook cheese!
Here’s some evidence that Big Brother definitely LOVES his dairy products!! Check out the dive right in to that whipped cream!! (If you missed seeing him enjoying some dairy in action, check out the video of our picnic lunch).
So, this month, be like Big Brother and dive into your favorite dairy product!! You can even find some really good deals on them! In fact, you may still be able to find this coupon booklet at your local Safeway affiliate store (look on or near the dairy aisles).
If not, you can always check out Safeway’s “Just 4 U” online coupons! You can search coupons by category and there should be some great dairy product promotions! In addition to all that, you can check out Safeway’s National Dairy Month contest at packyourpicnic.com! There, you can find great using dairy, play the instant win Daily Dunk game, and enter to win a trip to the National Park of YOUR choice! Pretty cool!
What are YOUR family’s favorite dairy products?
