Delicious Fortified Recipes

There are two delicious recipes included in the resource. The first is a fortified Banana Causeway creamy drink which has been specially developed to be high in protein. This is due to the inclusion of Lakeland Dairies’ 100% Dairy Skimmed Milk Powder which delivers additional calories and protein. The second is a tasty fortified Rice Pudding recipe, deliciously creamy, milk is truly the star of this dish.

World Milk Day

World Milk Day was established more than 20 years ago by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations to recognise the importance of milk as a global food and to celebrate the dairy sector. Each year since, the benefits of milk and dairy products have been actively promoted around the world. Globally, dairy supports the livelihood of one billion people.


High-quality milk from the Island of Ireland

For more than 100 years, Lakeland Dairies Co-Operative of farmers has produced high-quality, wholesome, and nutritious milk. With a proud heritage and reputation for excellence in dairy farming, their milk is made from grass-fed cows from their 3200 family farms.

The World Milk Day resource follows the recent launch of a Best Practice Guide for Food Based Activities from NAPA and Lakeland Dairies, “Working Together, Positive Practise Toolkit for Activity Providers and Catering Teams” which can be downloaded for free here.
