Milk processors commit to less added sugars in flavored school milk

Most fluid milk processors have agreed to limit the amount of added sugars in flavored school milk.

International Dairy Foods Association President Michael Dykes tells Brownfield the Healthy School Milk Commitment was a proactive effort, knowing USDA was proposing a rule to eliminate flavored milk from schools. “About eight percent of the nation’s milk supply goes to schools. Probably 80% of the milk in schools is flavored. Schoolchildren wouldn’t drink much milk if we didn’t offer the flavored milks so, I thought we couldn’t accept this.
