Health care professionals are advocating for Congress to ban dairy milk from the National School Lunch Act. Susan Levin, registered dietitian with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine says, “Milk doesn’t make children grow taller and stronger, but it can make them heavier.” The advocacy group is asking Congress and the US Department of Agriculture to educate children on plant-based foods rich in calcium, such as legumes and leafy greens, instead of primarily focusing on the consumption of dairy milk. PCRM asserts, “The federal government spends more money on dairy products than any other food item in the school lunch program.”
