Nutrition is fundamental at ensuring healthy development for children and families at large. Having a balanced diet is one of the basic requirements of nutrition.
A balanced diet means having a meal that contains different kinds of foods in certain portions such that the body’s requirement for nutrients is met.
While a balanced diet should be a must-have in every family, in this fast-paced era it can be a challenge for parents to ensure that their families are eating healthy and nutritious foods.
The lack of time often forces families to either stick to one type of meal for long or to prepare quick easy to make junk food which doesn’t have sufficient nutrients required by the body.
Fresh Dairy, the leading producer of dairy products in Uganda seeks to address the need for balanced diets in families by producing healthy and nutritious products including Fresh milk, flavoured milk, Long life or UHT milk, powdered milk, Fresh Dairy flavoured yoghurt, Brookside Fruit yoghurt, ghee and butter all made with fresh milk from Ugandan farms.
