The Southeast Dairy Association is committed to helping end the obesity and calcium crises among our youth. Regionally, the South is home to nine of the top 10 states with the highest rates of obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and physical inactivity. Additionally, data from the USDA indicates that seven out of 10 teen boys and nine out of 10 teen girls are not getting the calcium they need. By working with schools, throughout the Southeast, we are addressing these problems and helping out children live healthier lives.
