Get Milk Out of School Meals

Every year, schools worldwide put on celebrations for World School Milk Day that encourage children to think of milk as fun, healthy, and above all, necessary. Children are not told that dairy consumption increases the risk of myriad health issues, from obesity to cancer, and that it is not linked to a decreased risk of osteoporosis. Children are not told that greens, seeds, nuts and tofu are all excellent sources of calcium, and that unlike milk, they also contain fiber and other health-boosting plant nutrients. Children are not told that lactose intolerance is the norm, not the exception, and that lactose intolerant people do not have to tolerate or work around unpleasant symptoms to be healthy.

This is why Seed the Commons is launching a campaign to #ReverseTheTrend and get milk out of school meals, starting in San Francisco.

San Francisco has shown itself to be progressive when it comes to our children’s diet. We believe San Francisco can once again lead the way when it comes to milk. That is why Seed the Commons will begin advocating for the well-being of San Francisco’s children and urge the Board of Education to pass a resolution to remove milk from our children’s school meals.
