School District Bans Chocolate Milk

San Francisco school kids who learned to live without soda and candy will soon have to give up chocolate milk. The city’s school district will ban chocolate milk in elementary and middle schools this fall and in high schools in the spring. The school district already bans sodas and doesn’t allow cookies or other sweets to be served with lunch. One carton of chocolate milk includes about 40 per cent of the recommended daily allowance of sugar in a child’s diet, say supporters. However according to the Center for Food Policy and Obesity, it might make more sense to offer chocolate milk to children to ensure they get the calcium, vitamin D and potassium they need……. Ed
