 Abstract
This study was designed to examine the level of milk consumption and perception of the school milk programs among elementary, middle and high school students, which provides the information to improve the school milk program. Using a self-administered questionnaire survey, the data collected from 1,725 students nationwide were analyzed. The results showed that whole milk was the type of milk most frequently drunk by the students, although flavored milk and yogurt products were also highly preferred. When asked whether they wanted the school milk program or not, approximately 30% of the students in the schools presently participating in the school milk program and 50% of the students in the schools not participating the school milk program answered "yes". However, all of the respondents preferred to have a choice for the school milk program. The elementary school students showed a higher level of satisfaction with the school milk program than the middle and high school students. Especially, the level of satisfaction with the taste and flavor of the milk was the lowest among the various satisfaction items. However, the students were reported to believe that milk is highly nutritious and good for their health in the present study. Our results suggest that providing a choice of dairy products would improve the students` satisfaction with the school milk program, and that continuous education about the benefits of drinking milk would also encourage them to participate in the school milk program.
