Beginning next school year (2018-2019) students can be offered 1% chocolate milk (and all other milk flavors) with school meals.
Sounds great, right? There are some barriers that are holding up school foodservice from going all in. Calories are a big deal! The 20 additional calories (low-fat flavored milk compared to fat-free flavored milk) are a concern for school foodservice personnel who need to continue to be very strict in the number of calories offered at each meal.
What is WMMB doing? WMMB would like you to help us in a grassroots campaign to inform schools of the option. Reach out to your schools today! Schools will then need to make their choice to switch to 1% chocolate milk.
