What you can do for your family - and for kids around the globe
CHICAGO, March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- We know that milk is good for our kids, providing protein, calcium and important vitamins and minerals. That's why it's always been a key component of the school lunch programs in the U.S. In developing countries, however, 60 million primary school-aged children attend class hungry.
But, there's good news. When school feeding programs are established in developing countries, learning improves, more boys and girls attend school and more children will complete all six years of primary school – all while improving their overall health and nutrition. Because milk contains virtually all the vital nutrients required for growth, it is central to school feeding programs. Milk and other dairy products are excellent sources of calcium, which is especially important for children and vital for the growth and strength of bones.
