National Dairy Week

National Dairy Week

National Dairy Week

This week (April 20th – 24th) is National Dairy Week. Dairy foods are so important for growing children, so this week is a fantastic opportunity to encourage your pupils to include more dairy foods in their diet.

As part of National Dairy Week, you can visit the great website from the Moo Crew (www.moocrew.ie), which has lots of useful resources for the classroom to help pupils to understand more about the Dairy Food Group.

The Moo Crew also has a super poster competition for primary schools. Pupils are asked to create a poster which demonstrates what they have learned about the role of dairy in a healthy diet. The prize includes a farm visit, sports pack valued at €1000, and a weekend away for the teacher involved, so it’s well worth participating! The competition closes on May 8th 2015.
