Milk is for all

Some love milk, some hate milk

Some are forced to drink milk

Milk is for all, who love or do not love milk

Make milk a part of daily diet

It has great nourishing value

Helpful to growing children

And also to all age groups.

Drink milk everyday

Get plenty of protein, fat and vitaminC

Lead a healthy life every day

Remember…milk is for all

For healthy wealthy and sickly people.

Milk is for all

Cows, buffaloes, sheep

Goat, camel yak provide milk

Milk is for all

Used in many forms

It adds taste to tea and coffee

Also we get delicious

Yoghurt, cheese, cream and chocolates

Mostly loved by one and all

Yes-milk is for all and for all occasions

It gives energy

Make our teeth strong

Also keeps us healthy and strong

Appreciate milk, use milk and milk products

Be a part in national economy

Yes-yes milk is for all

Yes milk is good for all.
