Viactiv Yours & Hers: Building Strong Bones Together

Now that my daughters are older, I find myself having more discussions with them about health. The more I learn, the more I share with them, especially Nannah (16) and Jazz (20).

This is a critical time because 95% of bone building happens by age 20. My daughters Kayla and Nannah loves to drink milk. We actually go through a few gallons of week.
