The dairy industry has long played an important role in helping to feed the people of the UK and it is disheartening to hear negative or misleading messages about the benefits of milk and dairy products. Therefore, the Dairy All-Party Parliamentary Group conducted an enquiry on the role of dairy in the public health debate to support the future of the UK dairy industry by highlighting the unique contribution of dairy to public health.

The Dairy APPG recommended that Parliament and Government support industry efforts to promote British milk and dairy products across the country and that the nutritional value of dairy products to the UK diet should be recognised by the Department of Health.

A key ask is the implementation of a 3-a-day programme for milk and dairy products to encourage the consumption of dairy products as part of a healthy and balanced diet and to educate consumers of the benefits of dairy.
