From mac and cheese to yogurt, just imagine the amount of milk your children consume each day at their schools. If you’re not packing organic dairy options for your children, it is likely their school is serving conventional dairy products. The numerous health benefits offered by organic milk have encouraged many schools to shift to organic milk. Find out if your school has made the switch.
If not, we recommend urging school authorities to use organic dairy in vending machines, cafeterias and lunchrooms. You can share these 4 facts about organic dairy with your school’s decision makers:
- Organic dairy animals must be pasture-grazed throughout the grazing season.
- All of the supplemental feed organic dairy animals are fed must be organic, with no persistent pesticide use.
- Organic dairy animals are raised without antibiotics or endocrine-disrupting chemicals, such as hormones and steroids.
- Organic dairy products have higher amounts of omega-3 fatty acids than conventional dairy products.
