Dairy & Frozen
Back-to-School Success Begins with Enjoying Nutritious Dairy Products Throughout the Day
It’s back-to-school season, and with so many types of milk, cheeses and yogurts available, it’s easy to find meal combinations that set the curve for success as kids (and their families) return to the classroom.
Children who eat a morning meal perform better in the classroom and have better overall nutrition. Research shows that kids who eat breakfast have better memory, attention and behavior, and score higher on tests. Enjoying dairy foods throughout the day also provides added protein needed to fuel a wide range of activities all day long.
In addition, the wide variety of dairy foods available make meal planning easy, and dairy also gets an A-plus for nutritional and economic value. Dairy delivers a unique package of nine essential nutrients in a variety of tasty and affordable options. For example, one 8-ounce glass of milk delivers calcium, potassium and vitamin D and costs only about 25 cents.
Recognizing the important role breakfast and dairy foods play for school children and their success in the classroom, dairy farmers and milk processors nationwide have organized the Great American Milk Drive, a Feeding America program to deliver gallons of milk to hungry families who need it most. To donate, text “Milk” to 27722 or visit milklife.com/give.
