Cowbell marks World Milk day with another nutrition assessment program
Cowbell Ghana, in Partnership with the 37 Military Hospital, has marked this year’s World Milk Day celebration with a nutrition assessment outreach program for over 2,000 school children in Domeabra Methodist Cluster of Schools.
The program, which is the second of its kind, sought to assess the dietary status of schoolchildren and also advocate for daily consumption of milk among Ghanaians, with emphasis on schoolchildren. The event involved paediatricians, dieticians and general medical experts who took the children through a thorough screening process to understand the nutritional wellbeing of the children and further assess other child-related health issues.
Dieticians from the hospital, together with the Cowbell team, took the opportunity to have a class by class talk with the school children to educate them on the importance of eating a balanced diet and also the need to have milk in their meals. They also explained to the school children the importance of the nutritional component of cowbell milk, and encouraged them to have at least a sachet of cowbell milk a day. The Cowbell brand took the opportunity to give special rewards to some students through a Q&A session. The team from the hospital assured the Cowbell team, that the result from the outreach will be shared with the school, the brand's team and parents of the children to know the nutritional status of their children and to educate the parents on the appropriate nutrition to support their children’s growth and health needs.
Students were refreshed with different variants of Cowbell, which included Chocomalt, Strawberry, Banana and Coconut. They were also presented with packages from the brand. The event was followed with a donation of assorted Cowbell products to the Paediatric Unit of the 37 Military Hospital.
World Milk Day is an international day established by the Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations to recognise the importance of milk as a global food. It has been observed on 1 June every year since 2001. The day is intended to provide an opportunity to bring attention to activities that are connected with the dairy industry.
