1% Flavored Milk is Back!

In an effort to increase milk consumption and participation in school meals, USDA is allowing greater flexibility in school milk offerings for the 2017-2018 school year. Take advantage of this opportunity and help ensure your students are receiving much needed nutrients provided by milk!

 

Milk – whether white or flavored – provides the same powerful package of nutrients!

Feel good about flavored milk! The flavored milk served in schools is fat-free and lower in sugar than ever before. For many reasons, it is an important part of school meals. Research shows that children who drink flavored milk, drink more milk overall, have better quality diets, do not have higher intakes of added sugar or fat, and are just as likely to be at a healthy weight compared to kids who do not consume milk.
