Milk includes nutritionally equivalent milk alternatives per USDA. In recognition of the currently limited availability of flavored milk with less than 150 calories/8 oz and the importance of milk’s natural nutrients in children’s diets, flavored milk with up to 180 calories/8 oz will be allowed under these guidelines until August 31, 2008 so long as schools attempt to buy the lowest calorie flavored milk available to them. Because of unique CA state milk regulations, the calorie limit for fat-free and low fat flavored milk in CA schools is 180 calories/8 oz with a transition period until August 31, 2008 that allows 210 calories/8 oz.
