The American Dairy Association/National Dairy Council (ADA/NDC) recently launched the "3-A-Day" educational marketing campaign to stress the importance of eating three daily servings of dairy foods to ensure present and future bone health. The campaign will include the addition of the 3-A-Day logo on dairy products from major manufacturers and processors that are an excellent source of calcium, print advertisements in national consumer magazines, radio advertising, child-friendly 3-A-Day tips on school milk cartons, and in-store promotions. There will be a call-to-action to start eating 3-A-Day of dairy on 3-A-Day Day on March 3, which kicks off 3-A-Day Week (March 3-9). In addition to the ADA/NDC, the campaign has the support of the AAP, the AAFP, and the National Medical Association (NMA).
