Bringing nutrition education and the importance of calcium to more Aussie kids

Life Education is excited to announce a brand new partnership with Dairy Australia. Dairy Australia and Life Education both believe in educating children to make healthier, more informed lifestyle choices – and now we are joining forces to bring nutrition education; and the importance of calcium to more Aussie kids.

We not only want to educate Australian children on the importance of calcium for growing bodies, but also teach kids about where dairy foods come from and the hardworking Aussie dairy communities who make fresh, nutritious milk to drink every day.

In Australia, 8 out of 10 kids do not consume enough calcium. The Australian Dietary Guidelines recommend primary school aged children consume between 2-3 serves of dairy or dairy alternatives a day.

Life Education teaches kids that dairy or dairy alternatives and exercise all play an essential role in the growth and development of children’s teeth and bones, so it’s important to educate on the health benefits of calcium as part of a balanced diet through these formative years. Our partnership with Dairy Australia will help us provide engaging educational resources to help our educators and teachers learn more about dairy as a great source of calcium.
