Ruth Saunders, IDFA vice president of policy and legislative affairs
A recent article by Bloomberg BNA noted that a bipartisan draft bill in the Senate to reauthorize school lunches would mandate a Department of Agriculture study of “milk consumption data and trends for children” when determining what varieties of milk should be available in school meals.
In the article, Ruth Saunders, IDFA vice president of policy and legislative affairs, said many schoolchildren go without milk at home, and an extra 10 calories in a carton of chocolate milk is a worthwhile trade-off if it entices children to choose milk at lunch and get close to their daily recommended requirement.
