I've always loved drinking milk, day AND night and when Dutch Lady announced their 7-Day Breakfast Challenge, I was excited to be part of it. I usually skip breakfast due to my busy schedule but I managed to have 7 days of a relatively healthy breakfast because of this challenge! They even sent a surprise breakfast to my doorstep to kickstart the campaign!
Guess what? I just had my very late brekkie consisting of yummy mushrooms, sausages, 2 perfect sunny side ups and Dutch Lady's Pure Farm Full Cream Milk. Back to preparing myself for my afternoon meeting! #sarapandutchlady @dutchladymalaysia #breakie #brekkie #breakfast #milk #healthybreakfast #foodie #foodofinstagram #foodporn

While some of us prefer to sip coffee or tea to give our sleepy bodies a jolt in the mornings, others lift their mornings with malt beverage or juices.
However, studies have shown that milk is the elixir our bodies need at breakfast.
“After about eight to 12 hours from your last meal, a glass of milk provides the nourishment your body needs in the morning to regulate itself,” said Ashlee Ng, marketing director of Dutch Lady Milk Industries Berhad.
“Besides, Malaysians are not getting enough calcium from their daily food intake. Nearly one in two children does not have adequate calcium intake*; and the average intake of calcium among adults comes up to less than half of our daily requirement**,” added Ng.
The nutritional gap may lead to a brittle nation. Hence, Dutch Lady Malaysia encourages Malaysian families to load up on milk before work or school. Just two servings a day helps meet a family’s nutritional requirements! Having one of the two servings at breakfast pumps at least 200mg of calcium into the body.
