Dairy groups say school meals need milk

Dairy groups are highlighting the importance of milk during school meals.

National Milk Producers Federation’s Claudia Larson tells Brownfield, “Research has shown for a lot of students, the healthiest meals they have are while they’re at school and through the school meal programs,” she says.

Larson says low-fat flavored milk has been shown to increase overall healthy meal consumption at school.

“When low-fat flavored milk is an option in our schools, we see less milk thrown away and less food waste, and we also see increased consumption in milk,” she says.
