Dairy Council of Michigan, the nutrition education services arm of United Dairy Industry of Michigan, has provided nutrition information and resources to Michigan schools since 1928. The services have changed over time, but the mission has stayed the same:
Contribute to optimal health through leadership in nutrition research and education by encouraging food choices that include dairy foods and other food groups in accordance with scientific recommendations.
The National Dairy Council® (NDC), the nutrition marketing arm of Dairy Management Inc.™ has been the leader in dairy nutrition research, education, and communication since 1915. NDC provides timely, scientifically sound nutrition information to the media, physicians, dietitians, nurses, educators, consumers and others concerned about fostering a healthier society.
A professional staff of nutritionists and dietitians is available to answer questions on virtually any topic related to dairy products, nutrition, scientific research, diet, and health. NDC also administers grants to independent researchers to aid in the discovery of information about dairy foods and the important role they play in a healthy lifestyle.
Through its network of state and regional dairy councils, NDC is recognized throughout the country as a leader in educating school children. Education materials provided by the Dairy Council include brochures, booklets, curriculum aids, posters and other items designed to teach children about food, nutrition, diet, and health.
