DSI says it is inspiring to see brands like Glenisk recognising the beauty in every child

Down Syndrome Ireland is delighted to see beautiful 17-month-old Abby Dillon from Cork, being announced as one of the new faces of Glenisk’s Organic No-Added-Sugar Baby Yogurts.  Abby was born with Down syndrome.

Down Syndrome Ireland President Mary Doherty said: “It’s inspiring to see brands like Glenisk recognising the beauty of every child.  It is important to see more brands embracing the inclusion of people with disabilities in their advertising and promotion as it does have the power to change opinions and attitudes.

“When we start seeing inclusivity in the media, then it becomes the new norm and this is a positive move for all children and adults with a disability, including Down syndrome.”
