Inspired by Black History month, award-winning actor, singer and new mom Jennifer Hudson has joined the National Milk Mustache “got milk?” campaign to urge families to play a more active role in encouraging their children to drink milk.
"When you serve milk, you’re doing something good for you and your family," Hudson explains, “As a new mom, I’m trying to make the best choices for my family and me, which includes making sure milk is on our table everyday.”
Hudson’s ad reinforces the importance of milk for her family. Her message: “The taste of fame. Center stage, silver screen, joyful new mom. How do I keep this show on the road? Milk. Its wholesome goodness helps make my family strong at every stage. Talk about a powerful performance.”
Fans can check out Hudson’s new Milk Mustache ad, exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from her ad shoot and even enter to win a VIP trip for two to a Jennifer Hudson concert during the fall of 2010. In addition, fans can read Hudson’s thoughts on becoming a new mother in the latest Building Strong Families column.
According to PR Newswire, African American families are less likely than Caucasian families to consume milk, and this puts African Americans at an increased risk of Vitamin D deficiency. In fact, African American women are 10 times more likely to be Vitamin D deficient, putting them at risk for cardiovascular disease.
