USDA takes a common sense approach to dairy in school lunches

Jul 07, 2017
"For the dairy industry, early indications are that both the Trump Administration and the 115th Congress will take a common-sense approach to perhaps one of our most important nutrition issues – dairy’s value in schools,” said Michael Dykes, D.V.M., IDFA president and CEO, in his recent Cheese Market News column.

He said the swift action regarding milk options and sodium reduction targets taken by Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue and congressional leaders, including Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS), is good news for the entire dairy industry as it works to achieve its policy goals.
