South African’s World School Milk Day 2019
World School Milk Day is celebrated annually in South Africa under the theme “Dairy gives you go!” with the supportive message “Building better bodies with dairy”. These messages highlight the importance of dairy in a balanced lifestyle. The Consumer Education Project of Milk South Africa (CEP of Milk SA), Milk Producers Organisation (MPO) and various milk processors work together to educate, supply and celebrate the wholesomeness of dairy among school going children.
The CEP of Milk SA has developed educational tools to assist the teachers and engage learning. The educational material of the CEP is developed in line with the school curriculum as set out by SA’s Department of Basic Education (DBE). Various topics relating to dairy farming, processing and nutrition of dairy products in a healthy diet are elaborated on. The CEP, working together with the National School Nutrition Programme (NSNP) of the DBE, have sponsored and distributed these educational tools to more than 10 500 learners across SA in celebration of WSMD.
