Milk is an integral part of food systems and part of the solution to sustainably nourishing a growing population.
The dairy community understands that milk and dairy foods are essential to supporting the health of children worldwide. By working together and in partnership with organizations across all levels, from local and regional to national and global, the dairy community can empower stakeholders to understand and incorporate policies and programs like school meals to support children’s access to nutritious foods.
