Revolution Foods offers fruit juice and chocolate milk to its partners as part of a larger strategy to increase consumption of nutrient-rich fruit and dairy products, while also teaching children the value of moderation in a healthy diet.
We offer nutrient-rich 100% fruit juice up to three times a week with breakfast and up to two times a month with snack. We limit the portion size to 6 fl oz at snack and 4 fl oz at breakfast to provide students with the essential vitamins and nutrients 100% juice provides while limiting the excess calories.
We offer non-fat chocolate milk at lunch. Milk, including flavored milk, is a top source of calcium, vitamin D, potassium, and phosphorus in children’s diets and provides a good source of 8 essential nutrients. Studies show children who drink milk (including chocolate milk) have higher intakes of calcium but do not consume more sugar or fat than children who don’t drink milk. That said, we limit the frequency of chocolate milk to once per day to teach children that special foods can fit into a healthy diet but not at every eating occasion.
Depending on your school wellness policy and determinations on the meal program, fruit juice and/or chocolate milk may or may not be available.
