What I have for breakfast always differs based on the day. Sometimes, I like to have a heavier meal while sometimes I prefer to go light. Nowadays, I am staying with my parent so breakfast time has never been more exciting. They always make sure to prepare something for us each morning, be it Malaysian style breakfast or a more simple Western-style brekkie. Sometimes, my mum would cook for us and on some other days my dad will go out and buy something instead.
There are two main reasons why this happen:
1. Most Malaysian stop drinking milk which is a primary source of calcium once they pass childhood.
2. Milk is typically consumed at breakfast but at least 50% of Malaysian have breakfast irregularly.

Other than that, milk also contains other essentials nutrients which include protein, manganese, phosphorus, selenium, and vitamin A, B, C, D. Protein, for instance, is crucial for growth and development of muscle, bones and tissue while vitamin D3 actually helps in aiding the absorption of calcium and phosphorus. Milk also contains 85% water, making it an effective thirst quencher after 8 hours of sleep. A glass of Dutch Lady PureFarm milk in the morning (equals to one serving) will provide your body with at least 275mg of calcium, which is already halfway to fulfil the daily two servings requirement.
Milk Myth Buster!
According to research, Asians are more prone to lactose intolerant which is a condition that causes the body to be unable to digest lactose as easily. This would lead to uncomfortable symptoms such as gas and belly pain. Contrary to popular belief saying that milk is totally unacceptable for all lactose intolerant people, studies have shown that majority of lactose-intolerant people can actually tolerate up to 1 cup of milk daily; and having milk paired with other food will also provide easier digestion for them.
The parent company of Dutch Lady, the Royal FrieslandCampina N.V. have mastered the art of producing milk using only the best practices, techniques and knowledge for over 140 years, and this is the reason that sets the Dutch Lady PureFarm Milk range apart. It is the world's largest dairy corporative owned by farmers and also the original breeders of the Frisian cow, which is now the world's most popular cow breeds for producing milk. They have been sharing their expertise with our local dairy farmers, so the milk quality from Dutch Lady PureFarm milk is definitely the best in the game.Another unique point of the Dutch Lady PureFarm milk is the variety in their milk flavours which helps to cater to different taste buds, be it adult or children. So, on top of the full cream or low fat options, you also have a choice to opt between original milk flavour or have some more fun with their chocolate or strawberry milk!
My 7 Days Breakfast Challenge
Throughout the 7-Days Breakfast Challenge with Dutch Lady PureFarm Milk, I purposely chose less complicated breakfast choices to share with my readers as I wanted to emphasise on how easy it is to consume a well-balanced meal that provides enough nutrients for your daily breakfast. You don't have to be a professional in the kitchen to prepare the best breakfast to have with milk. It's not necessary to wake up at the break of dawn or spent too much time fretting over it. What's important is to give enough thought over what you eat. Breakfast and milk are such a versatile pairing. Milk goes perfectly with almost everything; from spicy foods to the sweetest dessert treats. All you have to do is mix and match them according to your breakfast preference, just like what I did.
Remember, it's very important for everyone to know the significant of milk in daily consumption. We need 2 servings of it per day in order to meet our body nutritional requirement, and having the first serving in the morning is definitely the best way to kickstart the day. I have always been a firm believer of breakfast and now, I know what comes best with it.
What I want to say is, "hey, got milk?"
