Lesson 6: Foods that help me grow: Dairy

Lesson 6 of the Village Table nutrition curriculum exposes the children to dairy foods. They will learn about the sources of dairy foods and how we use milk to make other foods. We use real images to increase exposure, which has been shown to increase familiarity and the likelihood that children will consume them.
