Chocolate Milk Back On the Menu

Children in New Brunswick will be able to ask their school lunch lady if she’s “got chocolate milk?” again.
Conservative Premier Blaine Higgs’ government is bringing the sugary drink back after the previous Liberals nixed it as a health issue.
Tory Education Minister Dominic Cardy says New Brunswickers expressed concerns about the level of restrictions under the nutrition policy imposed by the Liberal government.
He says the changes will provide flexibility and empower local school communities to make informed decisions about the health and well-being of their students.
He said as part of the new standards, flavoured milk and 100-per-cent real fruit juice may be sold in schools.
