In attempts to improve the nutritional quality of school meals, some schools and healthy lunch advocates are calling for a change that many health professionals agree could cause more harm than good when it comes to children's health: removing chocolate milk from the lunch line.
The nation's leading health and nutrition organizations recognize the valuable role that milk, including lowfat flavored milk, can play in meeting daily nutrient needs. At Prairie Farms Dairy, we are proud to have teamed up with milk processors and dairy farmers across the country to join the national conversation on healthy school lunches with the "Raise Your Hand for Chocolate Milk" Campaign. The campaign was created to highlight this growing issue and call on moms to help keep lowfat chocolate milk
You can get involved in the campaign by visiting: www.RaiseYourHand4Milk.com and signing a petition that shows your support to keep Prairie Farms lowfat chocolate milk on the menu in your local schools. On the site, you can also get the latest facts and science on Chocolate Milk's role in children's diets.
