CHOCOLATE VS. WHITE MILK

milkshowdown

Chocolate milk has the same 16 nutrients as white milk, including all its calcium and vitamin D. As part of a healthy diet, it can help us meet Canada’s Food Guide recommendations for Milk and Alternatives.

Getting enough servings of milk products every day is essential for many health benefits including strong bones and healthy teeth, and is especially important for children whose bodies are still growing.

Research shows that kids choose chocolate milk instead of other sweetened drinks and therefore end up drinking more milk in general. The result is that children and teens who drink chocolate milk have a better overall diet quality than those who don’t. And, they weigh no more than their non-chocolate-milk-drinking peers.

Chocolate milk contains no more sugar than unsweetened apple juice and only a very small amount of caffeine found naturally in cocoa. Its balance of protein and carbohydrates makes it an ideal post-workout recovery drink, and just like white milk, chocolate milk contributes to the health of our teeth.

As widely loved as it is, chocolate milk accounts for only 7% of milk consumption in Canada and for less than 1% of our added sugar intake.
