United School Milk Has Less Sugar, More Essential Nutrients

One, 8 oz. serving of plain milk has 64 percent less sugar and 40 percent fewer calories than a can of soda. One serving of flavored milk only has 130 calories and 10.1 grams of added sugar, a total of 22 grams of sugar. Even low-calorie fruit drinks don’t pack the nutritive punch that flavored milk does. Only milk, flavored and plain, has nine essential nutrients - calcium, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, protein, riboflavin, vitamin A, vitamin B12 and vitamin D.
