N Is for Nibbles, Nuggets, and News

Welcome back for today's entry for June Dairy Month. Today we salute letter N.
Earlier this week I joined up with Princess Kay of the Milky Way, Kyla Mauk to visit with shoppers at Hy-Vee in Oakdale, MN.

We were invited by Hy-Vee Registered Dietician, Jena Pape to speak with shoppers about the importance of having three servings of dairy each day, and what better way to reach out to these consumers than to offer a nibble of cheese. The Chipotle flavored cheese was a big hit, even for those of us who aren't spicy food eaters.

We also invited shoppers to go to the Midwest Dairy website to pledge to have their Dairy 3 For Me servings each day, and also to view even more recipes than the ones in the recipe books we handed out.

Kyla answered several questions about being Princess Kay (who doesn't like meeting a princess?) and Kyla and I both answered lots of questions about dairy foods and dairy farming. We both agree we love speaking right to the people that buy, consume, and enjoy the foods we produce. Thank you to the shoppers at Hy-Vee Oakdale that came to us, the people behind the product, to get their questions answered right from a farmer!

Thanks Jena, for inviting us to share some nuggets and news with your friendly shoppers, about the dairy community we are proud to represent!
