Dairy Council of California has launched a new website, HealthyEating.org, as a way to increase awareness of all of its nutrition education offerings across multiple audiences, including teachers and health professionals.
Combining the best features, materials and tools of its two previous websites – DairyCouncilofCA.org and MealsMatter.org – Dairy Council of California has created an online destination where families can learn to improve eating habits and understand the benefits of consuming milk and milk products; teachers can order nutrition education materials; health professionals can find nutrition information for patients; and members of the dairy industry can access and download helpful tools to use and share with others.
Anderson-Wise adds that along with providing consumers access to healthy recipes, meal ideas and healthy eating suggestions, the website serves as an expert resource on milk and dairy products, and showcases the dairy industry’s commitment and contribution to community health.
Available resources include consumer-friendly handouts and tip sheets for both students and adults (in English and Spanish) covering anything from basic milk facts to how milk gets from cow to container. Producers and processors can also direct consumers to the site’s interactive tools, including Healthy Eating My Way that customizes eating plans based on personalized needs.
