4 Out of 5 Moms Believe Healthy Choices at School Should Include Flavored Milk

May 3, 2012 - A recent Milk Processor Education Program (MilkPEP) release announced the results of a survey of mothers on the availability of flavored milk choices at school.  Conducted by KRC Research, the survey of 1,000 moms found that 80% do not support the removal of chocolate milk from school cafeterias.  Seventy-one percent of participants agreed that chocolate milk is a great way to give kids nutrients they need.

MilkPEP reports that milk processors have been working to lower the calories and sugar in flavored milk served in schools.  This school year, school flavored milk has 38 percent less added sugar than just five years ago, and on average just 31 calories more than white milk, with the majority of servings containing fewer than 150 calories.  This progress is expected to continue as schools comply with the new meal pattern requirement for fat free flavored milk.
