Dairy In Your Diet

Western Dairy Association staff of registered dietitians and family and consumer science specialists work on behalf of dairy farm families in Colorado, Montana and Wyoming to educate about dairy foods as part of a balanced diet.

Our staff is committed to providing credible, science-based research and nutrition information to consumers, health professionals and the media. Our goal is to ensure the public has access to credible nutrition information upon which they can educate, base health recommendations, and make decisions as to how best feed their families.

Western Dairy Association staff is privileged to:

  • Share education materials and research to support government recommendations for improved nutrition for Americans.
  • Offer advice for consumers on how to include at least three servings of milk and dairy foods in their diets each day.
  • Provide resources on topics such as lactose intolerance, sports nutrition, the DASH diet, bone health and other health related topics.
  • Answer questions about all aspects of dairy including processing and animal care.
