GO!

When muscles contact, they pull on our bones. When they relax the bone moves back. Voila: you move!

Calcium plays a role in the proper functioning of the muscles. Milk and yoghurt are naturally two of the most important sources of calcium in your diet.

MUSCLE STRENGTH

Milk, yogurt and quark are naturally rich in protein. So by exercising your muscles more and more they will grow and become stronger.

STRONG BONES

The strength of your bones is predominantly determined by your genes, but there are things you can do to improve them. Every day a part of your bone is broken down and rebuilt. By exercising you stimulate the creation of new bone mass.

Calcium is needed for strong bones. And more nutrients are involved in the maintenance of your bones, such as protein and phosphorous. Milk naturally contains protein, calcium and phosphorous. In addition vitamin D is important. You can get vitamin D by exercising outdoors; the sun produces vitamin D in your skin. So I’ll see you outside!
