schools should stop serving chocolate milk. Haley Valdez Michigan

Boom! Hundreds of pounds of sugar land in your stomach.It was brought in by chocolate milk.The sugar spreads quicly and its only seconds away from reaching your heart. I think schools should not serve choclate milk for several reasons.

The first reason is it has too much sugar. In the article “chocolate milk, more harmful than healthful” it states, “one tiny carton of chocolate milk has approximetly 30 grams of sugar.” It also states, ” That is more than a can of soda and you wouldn’t schools giving kids coke.” This proves that chocolate milk in schools is the same or worse than soda and energy drinks in schools. Another example is that a lunch lady in boulder valley school says ,” chocolate milk is soda (dressed up).

Next it can cause obesity and other health problems. According to the article “sugary drinks can be unhealthy…” obesity is just one problem that can be caused, for example diabetes. This is important because the number of American children who are overweight will increase even faster because of this. Experts demonstrate that sugary drinks can be unhealthy but regular milk can be unhealthy too, which only makes flavored milk worse. In USA Today it states,”…the nations child obesity epidemic ,and say flavored milk simply needs to go. ” finally kids can get the nutrients in milk from other healthier foods. Cecilia, a fifth grader says that kids can get the nutrients in milk from other tasty foods. For example some things that can be nutritious too are green leafy vegtables

, nuts, oranges,      to be continued
