School Nutrition
Milk, cheese and yogurt contribute important nutrients to the school meal programs. In fact, milk is the number one food source of calcium, vitamin D and potassium in children’s diets. National Dairy Council offers resources to support school nutrition professionals in efforts to provide healthy meals to students, such as sample menus and analysis that meet nutrition guidelines.
