Who we are
We are a team of Registered Dietitians who work collaboratively with educators, teachers, and community stakeholders to create engaging, high-impact nutrition resources. All our resources offer developmentally appropriate activities that allow for knowledge development and skill building. We are intentional about framing nutrition education in ways that provide children and youth with opportunities to foster a relationship with food and their body that serves them throughout their life.
Dairy Farmers of Canada has a longstanding commitment to essential nutrition education. Our work is informed by Canada’s Food Guide and Saskatchewan curriculum. As a result, when we talk about milk products, it’s in the context of overall eating patterns.
