Dairy Council appoints sports nutritionist to promote benefits of milk and exercise in post primary schools

The Dairy Council for Northern Ireland has announced the appointment of Sports and Exercise Nutritionist, Stephanie Ingram who will be responsible for developing a programme to promote the benefits of milk and dairy products and an active lifestyle among post primary school pupils across Northern Ireland.

Commenting on her appointment, Stephanie, who has a Masters in Sports and Exercise Nutrition and is a Graduate member of the Sports and Exercise Nutrition Register, said:

“I am delighted to be working with the Dairy Council team to develop an innovative and engaging programme to educate young people about the importance of nutrition in an active lifestyle, and the potential role of milk and dairy products within this.

“It is essential that we equip young people with the knowledge and tools needed to adopt healthy behaviours and foster a healthy attitude towards nutrition and physical activity from childhood and throughout their adult lives.”

Dr Mike Johnston, Chief Executive of the Dairy Council for Northern Ireland, commented:

“The Dairy Council remains firmly committed to promoting the nutritional value of milk in Northern Ireland and Stephanie is the ideal person to help us to communicate to teenagers about the importance of milk for sports and a healthy, active routine.

“Stephanie’s role will also be in addition to our existing Food and Fitness programme in primary schools and our Young Cook of the Year competition in post primary schools as part of our strategic approach of educating all young people about the key role of milk and the wide range of essential nutrients that it provides.”
