A Breastfeeding Education Activity Package for Grades K-12: New York State Department of Health

The New York State Department of Health, Bureau of Women's Health would like to acknowledge the following people for their contributions to this Breastfeeding Activity Package.

Sharyll Keller, M.S. and Elizabeth Miller, M.S., served as consultants for planning, creating and editing this package. Patty Severson, M.S., author of the Lactation Education lessons in levels 7 and 8 was very generous to allow the department to use her materials as part of this package.

This document could not have been produced without the support of Rebecca Gardner and Gordon Odermann of the New York State Department of Education.

Thanks also to the New York State Education Department Nutrition and Family Life Coordinators and the New York State Breastfeeding Advisory Council for their participation in the analysis of this document. The combined efforts of many people, including Noreen Spinrad who typed this activity package numerous times, has resulted in a package that truly does promote breastfeeding.

This project was supported in part by Project MCJ # 366064 from the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (Title V, Social Security Act), Health Resources and Services Administration, Department of Health & Human Services.
