Ask A Nutritionist: Dairy’s Role in Sustainable Food Systems

By: Ashley Rosales, RDN

  • 1 Minute Read   

In this episode of Ask a Nutritionist, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Ashley Rosales answers the question, "What role do milk and dairy foods play in sustainable food systems?”

Food systems, which include everything from producing and packaging to marketing and disposing of food, directly impact the health of people, animals and the planet. In seeking solutions to address and achieve a sustainable food system, it is essential to consider the nutritional needs of a growing population. Wholesome, nutrient-dense foods should be accessible, affordable and culturally relevant, while also preserving Earth’s finite resources and supporting local, thriving communities. 

Join Ashley as she connects how sustainable nutrition is a key part of developing sustainable food systems that ensure all people can enjoy wholesome, nutritious foods like fruits, vegetables and milk and dairy foods to achieve our vision of a healthier world and thriving planet.
