Today we will tell you today is national what day. World Milk Day is one of the many days initiated by the UN, in this case by FAO. Its goal is to promote an awareness of the benefits of this “white gold” that is milk. Objectivity still forces us to recognize that this day is very little publicized, except by professional dairy organizations.
World Milk Day June 01
According to our Canadian friends, it has existed since the year 2000 and is celebrated in no less than 40 countries in the world.
In this regard, we should note an interesting initiative in schools in this country, where World Milk Day is presented in a fun way to make students aware of the importance of consuming milk as part of a healthy and balanced diet. Interesting in a country where Cola is king and junk food present in all fast food.
But by the way, did it take until World Milk Day to get students to eat milk? The oldest ones will surely remember that in France, the president of the council Pierre Mendes-France had already distributed it to the children. It was at the time a public health action. The era of communication was not yet born.
