U.S. Representative Glenn Thompson (R-PA) and Chairman of the House Agriculture Committee Collin Peterson (D-MN) have introduced a bill to allow for unflavored and flavored whole milk to be offered in school cafeterias.   H.R. 832, the Whole Milk for Healthy Kids Act of 2019, recognizes the importance of milk to the health and well-being of growing children.  Last year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture allowed schools to serve 1 percent flavored milk in school meal programs.  H.R. 832 would allow whole milk to be included as well.
