Getting children to drink more milk is a major goal for most health organizations including the American Dietetic Association. A study in a recent issue of the Journal of the American Dietetic Association reports that offering children flavored milk can increase consumption.

Researchers at the University of Vermont studied flavored milk consumption among more than 4,000 students and found that those who drank flavored milk had higher calcium and milk intake and lower sugar-sweetened beverage intakes than those who did not choose flavored milk.
