Kids love milk, cheese, and yogurt and we can help you integrate them in new and exciting ways while still meeting meal requirements.

 

Yogurt

Yogurt smoothies and parfaits are proven crowd-pleasers – and highly versatile! Serve these popular, nutritious items the easy way, with recipes here.

Smoothies can be made with fruit and vegetables in a variety of flavors and parfaits can be sweet or savory. Both are easy to add to Grab & Go menus. Find out more.

Just Say Cheese

Everyone loves cheese! It’s also one of the most popular food items on school menus — whether served alone, in an entrée or as a topping. Cheese helps kids eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains, and it is an excellent source of vitamins and calcium.

Helping students get more of the delicious, nutrient-packed cheese they love is easy with these ideas:

  • Serve brunch for lunch
  • Make gourmet grilled cheese
  • Top salads and pasta with cheese

Hot chocolate milk

That includes hot chocolate milk – a long-time favorite with students of all ages! Serving low-fat and/or fat-free flavored milk with reimbursable meals is compliant with USDA guidelines. Learn more about our Hot Chocolate Milk program here.

Strive for 35

Remember, students drink more milk – and get more of the nine essential nutrients – if you serve it to them cold. Always strive for 35 degrees for storage and delivery of milk!

New Look of School Milk

Studies show that when milk is served cold in plastic bottles, kids are more likely to choose it. Give milk a contemporary feel by serving in plastic bottles!
