Education Philosophy of the Dairy Council of California

Education Philosophy

We value our ability to help people improve their health at the key times in their life when they are the most open to making change. Our programs target children at key developmental stages and adults at critical times in their lives when eating and lifestyle habits are most likely to be re-evaluated.

We strive to be on the leading edge in applying the latest, proven educational methodologies. We build our programs around a behavior change model and learning strategies that are consistent with recent brain research on effective learning. We believe that truly effective nutrition education works best when individuals are educated to make the best food choices for themselves and their families, and can clearly see how to put their choices into action.
