Connecticut Chocolate Milk Ban

For years, America’s dairy industry has promoted milk by saying, “it does a body good.”  Yet, Connecticut lawmakers don’t think that applies to the chocolate version.  They voted to ban the popular drink from all public schools in the state earlier this week to comply with new federal lunch standards on sodium.

Chocolate milk does contain a bit of salt, but the American Heart Association says the nutritional value of chocolate milk outweighs concerns about sodium in kids’ diets.

It’s packed with calcium and Vitamins A and D and some school nutritionists say they’re worried that kids may reject milk altogether if it’s not chocolate-flavored.
