LA CROSSE, Wis. - "Morning Milk" is coming to an end for La Crosse elementary schools.
Students in La Crosse were given a break during the morning and could have milk or juice. It was free for the kids who were on the free or reduced meal program.
Funding for the supplemental program has declined over recent years and officials say it's not feasible to continue after this school year.
Now, they're encouraging parents who want their students to have that cup of milk to eat school breakfast.20094654
"Milk is one of the components of our breakfast program. If your child qualitifes for free or reduced lunch, they qualify for free or reduced breakfast, and so we'd really like families to take advantage of both our breakfast and our lunch programs," said school nutritionist Angela Seeger.
"Morning Milk" was a unique program to Wisconsin.
