Chill Out with Cold Milk Webinar
Presented on May 11, 2021
Milk consumption among youth in New England is declining, leading to potential nutritional shortfalls in the diets of our students. Milk taste continues to be a reason students decline to select milk with school meals. Improper storage and service temperature is one factor that can affect milk taste.
Learn how you can address this issue with our prerecorded webinar featuring Lonnie Burt MS, RD, CD-N Senior Food & Child Nutrition Director, Hartford Public Schools, and New England Dairy registered dietitians Amanda Aldred RD, SNS, Becca Story MS, RD, LD, Erin Wholey RD, LDN.
At the end of the webinar, you will be able to:
- Explain the nutrient contributions of milk in the diet and why it is included in the school meal patterns.
- Describe where milk comes from and how it is protected along the path from farm to school.
- Identify how to properly receive, store, and serve milk to protect its safety and flavor in their school.
This webinar has been approved for 1.0 CEU from the School Nutrition Association and the Commission on Dietetic Registration.
