The value of milk on the menu
• A study showed eliminating flavored milk from elementary schools resulted in a dramatic
drop in milk consumption (35%). 1
• It can be difficult and expensive to replace the nutrients lost from decreased milk intake in
school meals.
o Even if a lunch included orange juice fortified with calcium and vitamin D, a school
would still need to add ½ cup of diced cantaloupe, 3.5 ounces of apple with skin and
½ cup of cooked baked beans to a child’s meal just to make up the nutrients lost in
one glass of milk.
o And, those additional foods add 171 more calories to a child’s diet than simply
drinking chocolate milk.
