National Dairy Council "Educational" Materials
Hey everyone, it's been a while, but I just had a quick question. In my daughter's folder today, I was appalled by the workbook of propaganda from the National Dairy Council that was included. I want to email her teacher about my disapproval of these "educational" materials, but I wanted to know if anyone has some advice as to how to do so tactfully. I would like to briefly address the misconceptions this pamphlet perpetuates such as painting a picture of a happy cow on a farm with plenty of space to roam around, and statements such as "foods in the milk group help you stay healthy," and forcing the children to fill in the blank of "Milk Group foods help build____" So I'd like to send her teacher some eye-opening factual links, but not militant ones. Any suggestions on links or how to word things in the email.
