WATCH: Beth Tweddle promotes benefits of yogurt

Olympic gymnast in new Dairy Council video

Olympic medallist Beth Tweddle has sprung into action to highlight the nutritional and sporting benefits of yogurt.

The Dairy Council has released a new promotional video featuring the Bunbury-born three-time world champion and six-time European Champion, in a stylised piece inspired by the opening title sequences of James Bond films, music which Beth had previously incorporated into her World Championship gymnastic routines.

Beth’s dairy diet has not only helped her become the first British female to win an Olympic medal at the London 2012 Games, but in 2013 she was also crowned the winner of Dancing on Ice.

Beth performs to a backdrop that highlights some of the key nutrients in yogurt – protein, calcium, Vitamin B12, phosphorus and iodine. It also reinforces the nutritional properties milk and dairy foods have for optimal sports nutrition.

The former Queen’s School student said: “I’ve always included dairy in my diet and I continue to do so now that I’ve retired. I really want to get across to the great British public the sporting benefits of yogurt. Not only is it delicious and versatile, but no matter what form of exercise or sport you do it can help to get your body into medal winning shape!”

Dairy Council director of nutrition Dr Anne Mullen, said: “We are delighted to have a great role model such as Beth Tweddle on side. So many young Brits look up to her and her achievements, so we hope that this video on the importance of including dairy and yogurt in a healthy diet will be a powerful medium for reaching a broader and younger audience.”

Beth’s commitment to the nutritional value of dairy is well established. She featured in the Milk it for All It’s Worth initiative and spearheaded the Milk in Action campaign.
