Nature's Sports Drink

Printer-friendly version

Chocolate milk is one of the most nutritious choices that athletes can make at home or at school.

It’s a natural, nutrient-packed food that is an excellent source of nine essential nutrients – calcium, potassium, protein, phosphorus, vitamins A, D and B12, riboflavin and niacin – nutrients that athletes need for good health! What’s great about low-fat and fat-free chocolate milk is that it’s easy to find bottles in retail grocery stores, convenience stores, cafeterias and quick serve restaurants.

Chocolate milk provides important nutrients in a convenient, great-tasting, relatively inexpensive package. According to the 2010 Dietary Guidelines and MyPlate recommendations, Americans of all activity levels over the age of nine should include three servings of low-fat or fat-free milk or milk products in their diet every day. Chocolate milk provides another option for meeting these recommendations.
