If billboards of the milk mustaches of Neve Campbell and Steve Young aren't enough to entice the kids to down a glass of the wholesome frothy white stuff, maybe Bart and Lisa Simpson on the milk associations new website will. As slick and cool as the print ad and television campaign, the website is catchy, informative and fun.

Enticements include mugshots of your favorite milk-drinking celebs, a downloadable screensaver (the advertisers dream!), recipes for your Taste Buds and a section where you can ask the Milk Mystic anything about milk and eventually get a reply. What could prove a very useful aspect of this site is a place to visit an online Personal Trainer where upon filling out a questionaire about your daily eating habits, your diet will be analyzed. I tried to no avail to submit my form but it kept saying it was incomplete...even after selecting every food imaginable and choosing 6 servings. I definitely think it's worth trying again later.

Recipes are divided into four categories: Blenders, Soups & Salads, Entrees, and Desserts and include such milky combinations as banana shakes, tomato-basil soup, garlic-spinach dip, steak with mushroom sauce and puddings galore. Each recipe is accompanied by its nutritional breakdown so that your visit to the Personal Trainer won't be in vain. It does do a body good as they say.
