What’s World School Milk Day?
WSMD is an annual dairy celebration that takes place on the last Wednesday of September. It’s a day dedicated to all the important health benefits linked to increased milk consumption, including:
- Improved bone health
- Reduced risk of type 2 diabetes
- Reduced risk of cardiovascular disease
- Daily source of protein, calcium and vitamin D₁

- 72% more vitamin D
- 69% more iron
- 58% more vitamin A
- 60% more whole grains
- 27%-103% more B-vitamins₂
Why cereal milk?
From boutique dessert shops to large restaurant chains, cereal milk-flavored drinks, ice cream and more are all the rage. Trendy dessert shops like Milk Bar and Treats Cereal Bar & Boba put their own unique spin on cereal milk. This sensation is the kind
of fun, hands-on food experience that Generation Z seeks out.
