Fun Facts

  1. Chocolate milk and other flavored milks have less sugar than sodas and most juice drinks…and pack a whole lot more nutrition. All milk has about 14 grams of natural sugar (lactose) per cup, so if you see 20 grams of sugar listed on the label of chocolate milk, only around 6 grams is added sugar.
  2. Studies show that when chocolate milk and other flavored milk are taken out of schools, overall milk consumption drops by approximately 38 percent.
  3. Chocolate milk (whole, lowfat and nonfat) has the same essential nutrients as unflavored milks of the same fat level – protein, calcium, vitamins A, D and B12, potassium, phosphorus, riboflavin and niacin.
  4. Research shows that kids choose chocolate milk instead of other sweetened drinks, thus drink more milk in general. The result is that children and teens who drink chocolate milk have a better overall diet quality than those who don’t. And, they weigh no more than their non-chocolate-milk-drinking peers.
