Child Nutrition
Decades of nutrition research and in-school programs have helped National Dairy Council take a leading role in the fight against poor nutrition, inactivity and overweight/obesity among our nation’s youth. National Dairy Council invests significantly in improving children’s health in many ways: in-school initiatives, partner engagement, nutrition research and counsel to the dairy industry on providing nutritious foods to youth. With a focus on the need for healthy balanced meals, National Dairy Council leverages the facts and nutrition research to educate thought leaders on the important role low-fat and fat-free milk (including flavored milk) plays as part of a healthy diet.
