DAIRY Day played an important role in the education programme that was part of the National School Milk Day campaign at Isibongo Primary School in Mpophomeni Township last Thursday.

The initiative targeted 1000 pupils, who were educated on the importance of milk, where it comes from and what products can be made from it as well as its significance in their diet.

Under the theme “Dairy Gives You Go”, Honey Dew and Milk Producers; Organisation, the Consumer Education Project, the national and KZN Department of Basic Education in South Africa joined in.

The message was clear - milk contains nutrients such as calcium, vitamin D, protein and potassium in addition to playing a vital role in growth and development of immunity.

“Therefore with the school feeding scheme we are hopeful that pupils in all schools in the country get the necessary nutrients they need to grow,” said Ms Mohube, National Department of Basic Education Chief Education Specialist.

Honey Dew gave Isibongo Primary pupils 500g full-cream maas.

Mr Mabinza, KZN local district director thanked government and the private sector for working together for the better of those less fortunate communities. - Supplied.
