Should Schools Serve Chocolate Milk? By:Erick Martinez

“Mmmm…”is what you hear people say. “delicious!” is something you might aswell hear from people who drink chocolate milk.

I think school should serve chocolate milk because it still has the 9 essential nutrients and because when drinking you meet your nutrient needs, because it is healthy and gives nutrients to build strong bones, and because you still get the 3 daily servings of dairy.

One reason shools should serve chocolate milk is that it hasthe 9 essential nutrients. When drinking, you meet your nutrient needs. Melissa Dobbins, a nutritionist from the dairy association, says, “Chocolate and other flavored milks have the same 9 essential nutrients as white milk.” She also concludes thatchocolate milk is something they call “Nutrition In Disguise.”

Another reason schools should serve chocolate milk is because it is healthy and gives nutrients to build strong bones. Once again, Ms.Dobbins enters the action and says, “Chocolate milk provides the nutrients kids need for good health.” Good health leads to healthy adults with healthy lives.

Finally, schools should serve chocolate milk because when drinking, you still get the 3 daily servings of dairy. In the article “Adding Chocolate To Milk Doesn’t Take Away Its 9 Essential Nutrients” sponsored by the NHMA, School Nutrition Association, etc. say, “Drinking whiote or flavored milk helps kids get the 3 daily servings of milk.” This is as healthy as a normal student like you and me can go.

In conclusion, the fact that schools should serve chocolate milk is important. Some people might say that flavored milk has too much sugar. However, they will never realize what kids themselves eat. but this could only lead to a different topic.
