Chocolate Milk: Official Beverage of High School Sports

Chocolate milk, the official beverage of high school sports in Ohio and West Virginia, is packed with nutrients for performance – with the power to fuel everyone from elite athletes to weekend warriors.

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 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.

Fueling Student Athletes

Drinking chocolate milk helps athletes recover for what comes next. It contains the right carb-to-protein ratio scientifically shown to rebuild exhausted muscles and provides fluids to rehydrate by delivering electrolytes such as calcium, potassium, sodium and magnesium to replenish what’s lost in sweat.

Chocolate milk has 13 essential nutrients, including some not typically found in recovery drinks. It has vitamins and minerals to help build and maintain strong bones, essential in reducing the risk for stress fractures. Chocolate milk is also a natural source of high quality protein to build and repair muscles — with 8 grams in every 8 ounce glass, chocolate milk puts the “pro” in protein.

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.
