As schools close or you begin summer feeding, it’s important to keep students engaged and entertained—serving up a little education on the side. Moooove into summer by celebrating a food group that plays an essential role in healthy school meals. June is your opportunity to put dairy in the spotlight!

In “Milking It for All It’s Worth,” a new SN Plus article, you’ll discover why cows can’t travel down stairs, why milk is a good antidote to hot and spicy foods and why calcium is important to healthy growth—plus 27 more fascinating facts, one for each day of National Dairy Month. Share with students and families on social media, in serving line signage or dining area displays, as components in nutrition education materials or elements of engagement activities.

Individual SN Plus articles are published periodically as extras to School Nutrition magazine’s print and digital editions. Click here to read “Milking It for All It’s Worth” on your device or print out a hard copy. Share it with your team members. We simply ask that if you share it outside of the school nutrition community, credit should be provided to School Nutrition/School Nutrition Association.

School Nutrition thanks Land O’Lakes for its generous support in making this article available.
