Hot Chocolate Milk for Students

American Dairy Association North East is dedicated to supporting you in keeping students engaged and excited about school meals. To achieve this, we’ve helped schools implement new and exciting menu items such as Hot Chocolate Milk. Students love it and reports from participating schools have been very positive.

Make hot chocolate milk one part of the grab & go options on kiosks, while providing prepackaged meals to your students.
