We've taken great strides to get Chocolate Milk out into the community starting with an early focus group of local stakeholders and moms in 2014 to learn the real-life challenges faced by black breastfeeding mothers. The project has evolved a lot since then. Here's a timeline of Chocolate Milk milestones, presentations, and podcasts!
