Five-year-old Farid Abea grew a white moustache Saturday thanks to the Got Milk? ad campaign.
Farid and plenty of other children received free milkshakes, created milky moustaches and posed for photos while learning about the nutritional value of milk during the event at the Americana at Brand.
Event sponsors emphasized their message that milk is rich in nutrients, and that many Americans, from growing children to women over 40, would benefit from adding more dairy to their diet. Most teens and many others are lacking in calcium, according to the National Institutes of Health.
"We want to get rid of the soft drinks and fruit drinks taking over our dinner tables and make sure people get the nutrition they need," said Got Milk? representative April Rueber.
The visit to Glendale is part of a 75-city tour for the popular marketing campaign launched more than a decade ago by the Milk Processor Education Program.
