Without Flavor, School Milk Consumption Drops, Study Shows

Jul 16, 2010

A study presented this week at the School Nutrition Association Annual National Conference reveals that eliminating flavored milks from school cafeterias resulted in a dramatic drop in milk consumption and nutrients, which are not easy or affordable to replace.

The study, released by the Milk Processor Education Program, included nearly 700 measurement days over three months at 58 elementary and secondary schools across the country. When flavored milk was not available, many children chose not to drink milk. On days when only white milk was offered, milk consumption dropped an average of 35 percent.
