I wanted to share a new educational resource from the Midwest Dairy Council – it is a curriculum of educational tools designed to help students better understand the importance of healthy snacking from both a health and economic perspective.

This curriculum includes downloadable “Make Change” lesson plans, appropriate for any lessons focusing on health, family and consumer science (FACS), or general classroom discussion. The lesson plans and accompanying tools are located inside the “Educator’s Resource Center” at http://dairymakessense.com/educator/.

Here, you’ll find posters, a PowerPoint presentation, lesson plans and interactive “cow-culator” activity, hand-outs, charts, recipes, and nutrition guides, all available free of charge (and all of these resources have been teacher-reviewed.)

Educators can also apply for a $500 school grant from Midwest Dairy Council to help empower students to take action for their health and improve their school environment. Fifteen $500 grants will be distributed. The grants are only available to schools in the Midwest Dairy region, which includes IA, ND, SD, MN, IL, MO, AR, KS, and eastern OK.
