Celebrate National Dairy Month this June

2019-06-03

SNA Promotion Calendar

June is about to get utter-ly fabulous.

While fruits, vegetables and whole grains get the most emphasis in the school nutrition sector, dairy should not be forgotten. With its punch of protein and vital vitamins and minerals, dairy is a nutritional powerhouse and plays to kids’ preferences. This June, celebrate National Dairy Month!

Happily, dairy consumption goes far beyond the milk carton. From yogurts to string cheese, dairy comes in many forms so it’s easy to get creative with different recipes. Milk can be added into smoothies, create tasty parfaits with yogurt, a sprinkling of cheese can amplify a taco salad or pair cottage cheese with banana and pineapple for a delicious new spin on a banana split. (Don’t forget the cherry on top.)

Interested in learning more about the importance of dairy with tips and recipes? Be sure to check out School Nutrition’s archives for the August 2018 feature “Dairy Done Right.” Raise your glass of milk and let’s give a three cheers to dairy!

This is just one of many celebrations happening in June and throughout the year. For more notable people, celebrations and ideas for your school nutrition operations, visit www.schoolnutrition.org/PromoCalendar.
