Together, Let's Eat More Dairy - Dairy Toolbox

This toolbox is designed to be a resource for EFNEP staff.  Over the next 5 years, California EFNEP aims to increase the amount of dairy products consumed by its participants.  To aid in this effort, we have prepared an array of resources that address many of the barriers associated with dairy intake.  If you would like to add something to the toolbox, please contact Melissa Tamargo at matamargo@ucdavis.edu.
