Why Milk at School?

nutrition info

A child’s growth depends on bone development. Milk products contain up to 15 essential nutrients, including protein and calcium to help young bones develop properly. Furthermore, all cow’s milk in Canada is fortified with vitamin D which helps the body absorb the large amounts of calcium found in both white and chocolate milk.
