National Dairy Council Joins USDA in 'Partnering With MyPyramid'
Date:6/10/2008

New Partnership Helps Educate Americans on Healthy Living and Eating

ROSEMONT, Ill., June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Dairy Council (NDC) is partnering with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to help empower Americans to transform their eating habits and make healthier lifestyle choices as part of the "Partnering with MyPyramid: Corporate Challenge to Step Up and End Childhood Obesity."

Now, the USDA has asked corporations and other food organizations, such as the NDC, to officially join in education and communication efforts promoting these messages throughout the country.

"The 'Partnering with MyPyramid' program is a natural extension of the NDC's work as a national leader in nutrition research and education since 1915," stated Ann Marie Krautheim, R.D., senior vice president of Nutrition Affairs for the NDC.

Through this new partnership, the NDC will actively pursue new opportunities to do this in its 3-A-Day of Dairy consumer education program, various classroom initiatives and patient-ready health professional tools and resources.
