What's New

St. Louis District Dairy Council offers a variety of programs, both in and out of the classroom, to help schools educate students on the importance of dairy foods as part of a healthy diet. These programs offer everything from grants to encourage healthy eating in schools to games and activities that teach lessons about dairy. And that's only the beginning.

Fall in Love with Family Meals

Scheduling sit down meals, grocery shopping together, and preparing meals with local fresh ingredients can boost overall health and foster family communication and engagement.

Build a Better Breakfast with Dairy

Choosing dairy at breakfast, whether it’s milk in a glass, shredded cheese on eggs, or yogurt in a smoothie, is a simple way to quickly add great taste, along with calcium and protein to your morning routine.

Get Schooled on Flavored Milk

School flavored milk makes up only 4% of added sugar in a child’s diet while providing 13 essential nutrients. Carbonated drinks and sweetened beverages contribute up to 45% of the added sugar in a child’s diet, with little or no nutrients.

July is Ice Cream Month!

As the summer temperatures continue to rise and leave us craving a cool treat, look no further, July Ice Cream Month is here! Whether you’re celebrating with an ice cream sundae, milkshake, or just a few scoops on top of a cone, there is an option for all to enjoy this delicious dairy dessert.

June Dairy Month: Ninety and on the MOOVE!

As we move through June Dairy Month, remember the health benefits that milk, cheese, and yogurt deliver. Loaded with calcium, potassium, protein, and phosphorus, dairy foods contribute significant nutrition to Americans’ diets.

April Showers Bring May Dairy Powers

Osteoporosis is a disease that causes the breakdown of bone, leading to serious injuries, usually occurring later in life. However, consuming milk and dairy in the early years helps create a strong foundation that is vital for a lifetime of healthy bones.

Shape up for Summer with Protein-Rich Dairy

When it comes to fitness, protein is the star of the show, and for good reason. Protein is digested slowly, so it promotes a feeling of fullness when part of meals and snacks.
