Making School Lunches Great Again: Toomey Introduces Bill Allowing Schools to Offer Whole Milk to Kids
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) has introduced the Milk in Lunches for Kids (MILK) Act to allow schools to serve whole milk and two percent milk.
The MILK Act also requires the Secretary of Agriculture to revise regulations to exclude milk fat from the cap on saturated fat in school lunches. Currently, schools may only serve fat free or one percent milk with lunches.
