Sports Nutrition Award 2015
The Dairy Council Sports Nutrition Award in collaboration with SENr returns after a successful competition last year. The award sees a slight change in format with two prizes on offer for graduate applications and no professional award this year.
Last year’s graduate winner Arthur Dunne commented on his experience of last year's competition: "With a passion for the dairy industry and exercise performance I found the perfect match when The Dairy Council ran the inaugural Sports Nutrition Milk in Research competition.
"The competition application was a simple process with clearly outlined entry criteria along with very attractive prizes. As a recent graduate, winning this award has reinforced a food-first approach while also giving me confidence as a practitioner and a desire to carry out further research in the field of applied sports nutrition. A big thank you must go to my tutors at St Mary's University, Twickenham, The Dairy Council for the award and SENr for the privilege of presenting the research findings at their spring GSK event."

Dairy & Sport Matters
The Dairy Council has been heavily involved in sports initiatives including The Milk Race, our Milk & Sport booklets for athletes, and being a founding partner of the Sports and Exercise Nutrition Register (SENr).
In 2014, we consolidated our commitment to sports nutrition with the appointment of our very own Associate Nutritionist with expertise in sport and exercise nutrition. With this exciting development, The Dairy Council has launched "Dairy & Sport Matters", a quarterly e-newsletter for nutrition and sports professionals.
"Dairy & Sport Matters" will include news from The Dairy Council, expert comment and articles on sports nutrition, interviews with elite athletes, up-to-date evidence from academic journals on sports nutrition issues plus top tips and recipes for the sportsperson's diet.
