Dairy Council: Flavored Milks Have The Same Nutrients As Regular Milk

With the turn of the calendar to August, everyone’s attention shifts to the start of school. 

 

Registered dietitian Kelsey Bentlage says making sure your child is well-fed can make a big difference in their performance. 

Over the past year, many schools have pondered the health risks of flavored milks.

Bentlage says that milk nutrients don’t change with different flavors. 

Chocolate and strawberry milk both have the same nutrients as regular milk.

She concludes that parents should not worry too much about the sugar content in chocolate milk, because regular milk already includes a type of sugar.
