Milk Matters: The NIH Creates New Online Resource for Teachers
New online resources stressing the importance of calcium for bone health are now available for middle and high school teachers. The resources are available through the Milk Matters calcium education campaign, sponsored by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development of the National Institutes of Health.
The new resources, available at: http://www.nichd.nih.gov/milk/teachers, feature fun, hands-on classroom lessons created to teach young people about the importance of calcium for bone health. The online lessons for teachers are part of the NICHD’s Milk Matters calcium education campaign, which aims to increase awareness about the importance of calcium in children’s and adolescents’ diets. The campaign encourages 11-to-15-year-olds in particular to consume sufficient calcium because these are the years of rapid bone growth.
