Agenda

Agenda

  • Regulatory Environment

  • Role of Dairy in Federal Nutrition Programs

  • School Food Regulations

  • Dietary Guidelines for Americans

  • Focus on Sodium

  • Potential FDA Actions

  • Local and State Issues


Building demand vital to farmers

Building Demand: Vital to Farmers

Dairy Sector Stressed

  • Price volatility

  • Income over feed

    costs has fallen

Demand is Part of Solution

  • Growing demand = growing income

  • Consistent with public health

    • Many Americans under-consume dairy

School foods

School Foods

  • 2 Sets of Standards

    • Federal meal programs (lunches, breakfasts)

    • “Competitive” foods (vending, a la carte)

  • Meal program rules in effect

  • Competitive foods rules proposed, not final


Dairy impact meal rules

Dairy Impact – Meal Rules

  • Only low-fat, fat-free milk

    • Schools moving this direction for years

  • Flavored milk must be fat-free

    • Effect unclear so far

  • Recent changes may favor yogurt

    • More flexibility to serve

    • Greek yogurt pilot project

  • Schools have struggled with “smoothie” rules

    • Difficult to use yogurt

  • Calorie limits on meals for first time

    • May limit cheese in some items

    • May also encourage reformulations


Dairy impact competitive food rules

Dairy Impact – Competitive Food Rules

  • Only low-fat, fat-free milk

    • No 22 g sugar limit, despite IOM view

  • Reduced-fat cheese exempt from fat rules

    • But not sodium rule (200 mg for snacks)

  • Low-fat, fat-free yogurt exempt from sugar limits

    • If <30 g sugar / 8 oz

  • NSLP entrees may be exempt from fat, sodium rules

    • May be limited to day served

    • Implications for pizza, ethnic dishes

  • Rules reflect USDA view of dairy’s value

    • Under-consumed by many youth

    • One of DGA foods to encourage


Dietary guidelines

Dietary Guidelines

  • Official federal diet advice

  • Every 5 years

    • Next in 2015

  • Advisory committee named soon?

    • Much public, private activity already

  • Shape federal programs

    • WIC, school meals


Dairy impact 2015 dietary guidelines

Dairy Impact – 2015 Dietary Guidelines

  • Dairy major component of federal programs

    • WIC, school meals, CACFP

  • Guides messages from federal agencies

    • And producer checkoffs

  • Recent DGA editions encouraged dairy

    • 3 servings for most age groups

    • “Food Group to Encourage”

    • Advised low-fat or fat-free


Focus on sodium

Focus on Sodium

  • Most efforts voluntary

    • National Salt Reduction Initiative

  • But emerging view suggests regulation

    • Food supply changes, not individual actions

  • Some challenges to scientific orthodoxy

    • IOM committee considering different views

  • Significant challenges to food functionality, taste

    • Possible impacts on consumption of other nutrients such as potassium


Dairy impact sodium initiatives

Dairy Impact – Sodium Initiatives

  • Dairy checkoff-related groups focused on sodium reduction

    • Product analytics, food safety curves, low-sodium research

  • Some initiatives: Early targets feasible; ultimate targets difficult

    • NSLP rules

  • Salt fundamental to cheese-making process, taste, safety, functionality

    • Area for pre-competitive industry work, innovation, research

    • Success stories: “Smart Slice” school pizza

  • Cheese is #2 calcium source in American diet

    • More easily tolerated by lactose maldigesters than milk

  • Dairy is leading food source of potassium, phosphorus, etc.


On the fda horizon

On the FDA Horizon …

  • Nutrition Facts Panel

    • DVs, RACCs

  • Dietary Guidance Statements

    • Definition for label use

  • Front of Pack Labeling

    • Stop lights?

  • Agency agenda predicts action in 2013

    • But delays may be likely


Dairy impact potential regulations

Dairy Impact – Potential Regulations

  • Do FOP labels highlight positive nutrients?

    • Or warn against negative ones?

  • Will change in Daily Values or RACCs affect …

    • “Good” or “excellent” source claims?

    • Perceptions of importance of calcium, other nutrients?

  • Exact impact unknown until regulations published

    • (If they are)


At the state local level

At the State, Local Level …

  • Where states lead, feds often follow

    • Competitive foods, food safety

  • Raw milk debates

    • Food safety vs. consumer choice

    • Public health issue

  • NYC procurement guidelines

    • Dairy criteria similar to new USDA rules

  • NYC soda size limit


Dairy impact state local actions

Dairy Impact – State, Local Actions

  • Pros and cons of multiple standards

    • Local control, flexibility

    • Challenges for national or regional manufacturers

  • Do standards recognize dairy’s positive contribution?

    • Flavored milk: Great nutrient package, 3% of sugar in kids’ diets

    • Studies show major milk consumption fall when flavored milk removed from schools

  • Challenges for national groups to respond to multiple local actions
