Last week Ryan and I attended a national nutrition conference
in Little Rock sponsored by the National Dairy Council
and the Arkansas Children's Nutrition Center, one of six national human
nutrition centers in the United States.
The Arkansas Children's Nutrition Center is a partnership between
the Arkansas Children's Hospital, USDA-Agricultural
Research Service and the University of Arkansas Medical Center with a mission to
conduct cutting-edge research to understand how maternal-child nutrition
and physical activity optimize health and development.
Ryan and I were invited to give our dairy farmer perspective
on our role in dairy nutrition and health and wellness from down on the dairy farm.
It's an honor and always fun to be invited to share our passion for dairy!
Best of all, we listened to these two Arkansas students describe
the impact of the dairy farmer funded Fuel Up to Play 60 program.
You couldn't help but be dairy proud!
Not only are dairy farmers improving the nutrition of students,
we are providing lifelong skills in leadership and health and wellness.
And to top it off, we enjoyed beautiful and nutritious dairy products!
