    Now they can have even more harmful sugar replacements like sorbitol (which may, or may not be linked to rises in certain kinds of cancers, but it's cool because those companies would certainly NEVER try to hide things like that).

    No sorbitol in this product.

    Anyway, there are probably dozens of alternatives to removing chocolate milk completely.

    Let's see, recesses are being shortened, high activity games are either banned or heavily structured for fear of "lawsuits" cause kids might "get hurt".

    It's not what you eat, it's what you do. The more parents abdicate their responsibilities of raising their kids to the Gov't, the more problems we keep having.

    Amazingly the answer seems to be "more control"! It's like the world has entered a dark time of stupid.
    Anything government gives can face modifications. It's the American way.

    "like sorbitol" being the operative phrase.

    I'm not aware of all the supplements used, but you can bet its something no human being was meant to consume.

    Of course... Why don't we just skip this slide into a nanny state and just have the government take all children and raise them from birth, this way we won't have any bad parents doing atrocious acts like letting their kids have a chocolate milk at lunch.

    In London there have been proposals to have parents have their homes hooked into CCTV with government monitoring so if the parents forget to change a diaper that the child protective services can come in and bring the kids into the loving arms of foster parents. (where kids are far more likely to be abused and/ or put on pharmaceuticals like Prozac and all.)

    Yeah, so I've heard for the last 10 years...

    You're going go have to forgive me for not taking you seriously...

    You know with the whole "obamas birth certificate is fake" and "9/11 was an inside job"

    Cnspiracy theories seem to be your strong suit.

    Cause you know, we're only one school board decision away from CCTV in our homes

    Seriously, it's chocolate milk, not like the rest of the sugar substitutes have been banned.
    Don't like it, send your kids to a private school or homeschool them.

    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I really think it's about being "more healthy." Given one generation, we could change the health habits of a nation. I mean, think about it. Why should the school system feed our children anything less than very healthy food? Jamie Oliver, by the way, is a genius with his focus on the eating habits and cafeterias of public schools.

    The recommended daily allowance of sugar is 40 grams (on a 2,000-calorie diet)...or 8% of calories...or 10 teaspoons. Americans eat an average of 25 teaspoons of sugar a day -- teens eat an average of 34.

    An 8-ounce glass of fat-free chocolate milk has 20 grams of sugar (half the recommended allowance, or 5 teaspoons of sugar. An 8-ounce serving of Coca-Cola, by the way, has 27 grams.

    I used to love Burger King's plain chicken sandwich....a piece of breaded chicken, lettuce and a dressing of some sort. Know what the sodium content of that guy is? No? Well, it's 'cause BK would rather you don't know. It has 1390mg of sodium. Recommended daily amount? 2400.

    So what's wrong with salt and sugar? They're "bait." We learn to love the taste....and we are more inclined to overeat on a high-sugar or high-salt diet.

    If there's anyone out there that's looking to lose weight, and either salt or sugar are your triggers, cut them out as much as possible. Your appestat will change.

    So. What's wrong with feeding kids healthy food?? At least in school. We'd be screamin' bloody murder if they were feeding our kids rocks.

    In this product, Aspertame is used.

    Aspartame has been approved by the FDA for a number of years and is considered safe. It contains two amino acids phenylalanine and aspartic acid. There is no research to substantiate that it kills brain cells or anything like that.

    The public schools don't serve to teach the kids much either... but they sure do like to push the political pet agenda's.

    Last I knew soda and chocolate milk were legal, as are cookies and candy.

    I think someone should start a community service group to have PI's follow these folks and report what they and their families ingest to the public.
