“You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream!”
Ice cream, when consumed in moderation, is a great source of nutrients. Each ½ cup contains approximately 84mg (6% daily recommended value) of calcium and 2.3g of protein (4% DRV). Calcium and protein are essential parts of a healthy diet to maintain strong bones and muscle. Ask one of our Moose Pharmacists today about how much calcium and protein you need each day, and how to calculate your current intake. If you’re not reaching your calcium goals, our pharmacists can help you choose the right OTC vitamin supplements to help- we even offer our own Moose Pharmacy-branded calcium supplements!
If you’re trying to manage your weight, many low-calorie brands have emerged that are still rich in nutrients (ex. Halo Top). Alternatively, if you’re dairy sensitive or vegan, many brands have created plant-based milk substitute ice creams. Ice cream can be a part of anyone’s diet!
