Where do nutritious dairy foods come from? What about fruits, vegetables, and whole grains you find at the store? Help students learn more about healthy eating and the nutrients that fresh dairy and other farmed foods provide by organizing awareness events highlighting the origin of these foods and why they are healthy choices. Host an assembly highlighting fresh foods, including low-fat and fat-free milk, yogurt and cheese, plus fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
Learning about the work of dairy and other farmers in producing healthy, nutrient-rich foods can help students better appreciate the variety of foods they might choose, and where those foods come from. And, building awareness through "point of purchase" promotions and offering incentives can increase their consumption.
