The Power of Dairy: Filling Nutrition Gaps Across the Lifespan

Speakers: Sylvia Klinger, DBA, MS, RD, LDN, CPT and Amy Cohn, RD, CDM, CFPP

Research continues to show that healthy eating habits, which include low-fat or fat-free dairy foods, have been associated with health benefits such as reduced risk cardiovascular disease and improved bone health. When it comes to good nutrition, dairy contains nine essential nutrients the body needs for optimal health and is an irreplaceable source. Despite these benefits, many Americans are not meeting daily dairy recommendations and are falling short of key nutrients, including three nutrients of concern identified by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans—calcium, vitamin D and potassium. This gap in dairy consumption is leading to deficiencies starting in kids as young as four and persist throughout adulthood. This webinar will provide you with an in-depth look at recent NHANES data showing how dairy can increase overall nutrient intake. We will also look at ways that dairy can be an accessible and affordable, everyday nutrition essential to supporting and achieving healthier eating patterns.


We anticipate this webinar will be approved for 1 hour CPEU.
