Keep Flavored Milk from Dropping Out of School
The School Nutrition Foundation (SNF) in partnership with the Milk Processor Education Program (MilkPEP) will be offering a FREE Wednesday Webinar on Wednesday, August 25, 2010 from 2:00-3:15 pm EDT, entitled “Keep Flavored Milk from Dropping Out of School.”
Eliminating or reducing flavored milk from schools. It’s a hot topic in some areas across the country. Recently, a study was conducted to quantify the change in students’ milk consumption and nutrient intake when schools changed the availability of flavored milk. It revealed that without flavor options, milk consumption actually drops and stays lower over time.
In this webinar, you will learn about the study’s design and findings, and how to share this information with key stakeholders in the school nutrition community. Learn about free resources available to use with parents, school officials, and other interested parties to help show that student nutrition and food budgets are negatively impacted when flavored milk is removed from schools.
Learn directly from the study’s researchers and a school food service director who participated in the study. These speakers will help provide you with the framework to clearly articulate the benefits of lowfat and fat-free flavored milk in school.
- Learn about the new study that shows a negative impact on student nutrition and food budgets when lowfat or fat-free flavored milk is limited or removed
- Learn the key messages about this study to share with school nutrition stakeholders
- Learn about the study’s education tools and resources available to key stakeholders and food service staff
