Greatness is built with chocolate milk, the official beverage of high school sports in Ohio and West Virginia.
We’re proud to partner with the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) and West Virginia Secondary School Activities Commission (WVSSAC) because they recognize that being active and enjoying healthy foods, like low fat chocolate milk, helps students feel their best and be at the top of their game.
Together, we’re inspiring student athletes to power their potential through our Built With Chocolate Milk campaign, which harnesses the credibility of well-known athletes and sound science to promote chocolate milk.
Fueling Student Athletes
Chocolate milk has the nutrition athletes need after sporting events and practices. It provides 13 essential nutrients, including some not typically found in recovery drinks, and is a natural source of high-quality protein to build and repair muscle.
Chocolate milk contains the right carb-to-protein ratio scientifically shown to rebuild exhausted muscles. It provides fluids to rehydrate by delivering electrolytes such as calcium, potassium, sodium and magnesium to replenish what’s lost in sweat. Chocolate milk also has vitamins and minerals to help build and maintain strong bones, essential in reducing the risk for stress fractures.
And, enjoying low fat chocolate milk is a delicious way to help all students, parents and fans get their three servings of dairy needed each day, as recommended by the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
