ecome too common," said Gayle Binney, Dannon's corporate responsibility manager. "As we celebrate our 90th anniversary of providing better-for-you foods, we're proud that the Dannon Next Generation Nutrition Grants have helped to build foundations for healthy behaviors for thousands of children and their families. These grants are consistent with our ambition to bring health through food to all people and we're proud to support such a diverse range of child wellness programs."

"Children form habits early in life, which they carry into adulthood," said Keith-Thomas Ayoob, EdD, RD, FADA, pediatric nutritionist and associate professor of pediatrics at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. "If we can teach them now about health and nutrition, we can teach them valuable skills for their lifetime -- skills they can also share with their entire family. The wide diversity among the nutrition education activities funded by Dannon represents the complexity of the child obesity issue and the challenges and opportunities for real change in our communities."

Since the inception of the Dannon Next Generation Nutrition Grant program's in 2006, 16 grants totaling $460,000 have been awarded in support of improving child health through nutrition education. Dannon's grants have also impacted nearly 10,000 children over the past three years.
