National Dairy Week - May 12th-18th 2014

National Dairy Week runs from the May 12th-18th 2014, and is a nationwide celebration of dairy.

During this week, the National Dairy Council aims to highlight the quality of dairy foods in Ireland, and to raise awareness of how dairy is produced from farm to fridge. It also aims to raise awareness of the nutritional benefits of milk, yoghurt and cheese, and the vital role they can play as part of a healthy, balanced diet.

Dairy products provide an essential part of a healthy, balanced diet – and are particularly important for growing children and teenagers. Yet Irish research tells us that a significant proportion of teenagers do not have adequate calcium intake and additionally a survey commissioned by the NDC revealed that nearly one third of Irish adults (29%) do not consume the "three servings of dairy a day" recommended by the Irish Department of Health & Children for health and wellbeing (refs 1 & 2).

Moo Crew, the Primary Dairy Moovement, is an exciting initiative from the National Dairy Council where pupils explore the benefits of a healthy, balanced diet and an active lifestyle. Designed for 3rd to 6th classes, pupils will learn all about nutrition and healthy eating, the benefits of exercise, and explore where dairy comes from in its journey from farm to fridge.Lesson plans are available in both English and Irish.
