PERSONAL REFLECTION DRAFT I The article is on the goodness of milk. From what we have read, milk and dairy products give us a lot of nutrients needed for our body. Many people assume that milk will make us grow fatter because it contains fats, unsaturated fats and cholesterol. The truth is, drinking milk does not cause obesity. From our point of view, taking food excessively no matter how many good nutrients it contains will cause bad effect to our body as the saying goes; too much of something is bad. We believe milk actually gives more good than bad since it is one of the sources of food that needed to be consumed as it is rich with essential nutrients, proteins, vitamins and minerals. We ourselves love to consume dairy products as it is a pleasure to eat something that is sweet and tasted good but at the same time, healthy. So, milk does not cause obesity only if we consume it with the right amount. Besides, people also get the wrong idea of saying flavoured milk is not good for us especially for children as it contains more sugar than plain milk. It is actually not true because flavoured milk helps children to love drinking milk as the taste and the color make it looks tempting and attract them to drink it. I (Fatin) myself love to drink milk just because it has flavours as I only drink chocolate milk. So, we believe that flavoured milk helps some people who dislike drinking plain milk to have almost the same amount of nutrients in plain milk. All in all, we do agree that milk has their own goodness despite the wrong facts people think about it. It will definitely give us nutrients we need for our body if we consume it sufficiently.
