Schools Shouldn’t Serve Chocolate Milk! Michgan #8 Barbara~Parnell February 6,2014

        It’s easy to think that chocolate milk is healthy, but when you look at the facts it’s really not. I have several reasons why schools shouldn’t serve chocolate milk.

       One reason is that chocolate milk has more sugar than a can of soda. So just think about it having two bottles of chocolate milk, and I thought soda had more sugar than chocolate milk. Did you know in 2012 the New York board of health approved to ban on the sale of large sugary drinks? Think about chocolate milk, more sugar than one can of soda.

       Another, reason is that chocolate milk has as much sugar as candy, which can lead to bad teeth. Other note the nation’s child obesity is becoming a problem and says flavored milk needs to go!!!

        My last reason is to think of a school bus that is filled with sand and the sand represents the amount of sugar American children consume in one week just for drinking chocolate milk. “When kids drink chocolate or strawberry milk everyday at school, they’re getting nearly two gallons of extra sugar each year.”  This is stated in the article “Chocolate Milk: More Harmful Than Healthful.”

        Do you see the difference now? This is why schools shouldn’t serve chocolate milk!!!
