World Milk Day 2021, History and Significance
Why is World Milk Day Celebrated?
Milk is a vital part of a healthy, well-balanced diet for everyone, and World Milk Day is the perfect occasion to spread the word. India has also become one of the world’s top milk producers in recent years, with over 150 million tonnes produced and per capita availability of over 300 grams per day.
Due to the wide spectrum of nutrients in milk, it has long been regarded as a nutritious beverage. It is the only source of sustenance for infant mammals until they are able to digest other foods. Every year, World Milk Day is commemorated to raise awareness of milk-related activities and industries around the world.
World Milk Day has an impact on the public, educating people on the benefits of milk, which is an excellent source of beneficial nutrients such as magnesium, calcium, riboflavin, vitamin A, folates, vitamin D, protein, and good fats. It contains high-quality proteins, including non-essential and essential amino acids and fatty acids, which provide immediate energy to the body.
What is the Origin of World Milk Day?
Every year on June 1st, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations has established World Milk Day to commemorate the importance of milk as global food and to celebrate the dairy sector.
The United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization established this day to recognise the importance of milk as a global food. The day is observed to raise awareness of all activities relating to the milk business.
This year’s World Milk Day 2021 theme is “sustainable in the dairy sector, as well as environmental, nutritional, and socioeconomic empowerment.” The organisation also hopes to reintroduce dairy farming to the world by assisting in the development of a low-carbon dairy future.
Every year, the topic strives to raise more awareness about the importance of including milk and dairy products in one’s diet.

On this day, people all over the world are actively involved in promoting the benefits of milk and dairy products especially how dairy sustains the livelihoods of over one billion people.
Dairy products are not only good for your health, but they are also an important part of the global food system, giving economic, nutritional, and social advantages to many people all over the world. Because India is an agricultural country, the day is much more significant because rice is one of the country’s staple foods.

This year, 2021 marks the 20th anniversary of World Milk Day, and organisers are expecting to see new participants and new ways of promoting the campaign.
What is the importance of milk?
Milk is a nutrient-dense fluid produced by mother mammals to feed their young ones. Cow, sheep, and goat milk are the most widely consumed varieties.
Milk is a high-quality protein source and only one cup of milk contains 8 grams of protein. Protein aids in growth and development, cellular repair, and immune system modulation, making it essential for the body’s correct functioning.
Drinking milk has traditionally been related with having strong bones. Its potent mixture of nutrients, including calcium, phosphorus, and potassium, is the reason for this. All of these nutrients are necessary for strong, healthy bones to exist.
Milk is an essential item that may be readily incorporated into your diet. Smoothies, oatmeal, coffee, soups, and other dishes can all benefit from it.
On an international and national level, association members commemorate World Milk Day to spread the word through a variety of promotional events. Consumers are informed through press releases, news, and articles about the health benefits and nutritional worth of the products. On a national scale, free milk camps are held, with local celebrities distributing free milk packets to children.
World milk day is celebrated in schools, colleges, universities, and other educational institutions by organising a variety of programmes to inspire pupils, such as quiz competitions, talks, essay writing, sports activities, and so on.
