Dairy MAX Talks All Things Dairy, Especially Ice Cream, at the State Fair

Thu, 15 Sep 2011 14:42:44 CDT

Dairy MAX Talks All Things Dairy, Especially Ice Cream, at the State Fair The start of the Oklahoma State Fair this week brings a lot of activities for people across the state and starting on Sunday, September 18th, Dairy MAX will be holding their homemade ice cream contest. Susan Allen of Dairy MAX says the contest serves as a great opportunity for people to learn about dairy, how ice cream utilizes dairy products, and the Fuel Up to Play 60 program.


Allen says 98% of consumers have ice cream in their households, which speaks volumes to dairy farmers and producers. Homemade ice cream is a treat for many people because ice cream is so readily available in stores and it is fairy simple to make says Allen. The combinations are endless with different flavors, fruits and toppings for this dessert, and more importantly, it is an important product for dairy farmers.


Also, the Fuel Up to Play 60 program will be a topic of interest to many people at the fair. Allen says there will be many dairy farmer kids and schools that have participated in Fuel Up to Play 60 at the fair on Sunday to demonstrate different dairy recipes, hand out samples, and talk to people about how they can incorporate three servings of dairy into their daily diet.


The Fuel Up to Play 60 program provides $4,000 to each school that is selected to help them educate their students about being healthier through diet and exercise. Allen says many Oklahoma schools are needing help in this area and this program helps them to accomplish this goal. The Fuel Up to Play 60 program is put together through the cooperation between the National Dairy Council, U.S. Department of Agriculture, local affiliates like Dairy MAX, along with the National Football League, and many other local supporters.
