Removing Chocolate Milk in School Meals SY 2017-18

During the 2016-17 school year, SNS piloted removing chocolate milk from 5 school sites. During this process, we learned that families and school staff were ready for the change, and that the students would switch to white milk without complaints.  Based on these findings, chocolate milk will no longer be offered during lunchtime at elementary and middle schools starting August 2017.  Chocolate milk will be removed from high school menus starting January 2018.  For more information, read FAQ and/or the full report of the pilot.
