I think schools are going a bit crazy. An unhealthy eater isn't going to change because of chocolate milk or them taking all their snacks away. They will just go home and gorge themselves anyways or buy it after school at a local store. Instead they should teach nutrition and physical fitness. I am happy they are making school lunches healthier but parents need to do their part and not have their child in front of the tv/computer for 8 hrs a day. Parents need to make healthy choices too, I'm not against a snack or treat here and there but some kids are living off potato chips and soda, it's sad....

My son generally eats well, but he is picky. He hates plain milk but loves chocolate milk, so we let him have it. This started on the recommendation of his pediatrician when he wouldn't drink milk after being BF for 20 months. In any case, not serving it isn't going to substantially change any child's eating habits - if they're bad, they're going to continue to be bad. I'm much more concerned about hidden sugar, high fat and completely empty calories. I work at my son's school and I can't tell you how many cartons of plain milk I see go into the garbage unopened. Is it better for the kids not to get calcium and protein at all or to get some sugar while drinking chocolate milk? Non-milk drinkers, no response necessary.
