“Real California Milk and cereal are an epic combination for families kicking off the busy back to school season. Milk, with its 13 essential nutrients and cereal, full of fiber, carbohydrates and protein, are an easy way to the start the day right,” Katelyn Harmon, Director of Business Development for the CMAB. “We’re encouraging families to take a little extra time together in the morning to share breakfast – fueled by sustainably sourced milk from California dairy farm families.”

California is the nation’s leading milk producer and is responsible for producing more butter, ice cream and nonfat dry milk than any other state. The state is the second-largest producer of cheese and yogurt. California milk and dairy foods can be identified by the Real California Milk seal, which certifies they are made exclusively with milk from the state’s dairy farm families.
