    I chose to drink regular milk because chocolate milk was difficult on satisfying thirst. Especially the thicker brands.

    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.
    Wow! This is so stupid. People should be allowed to eat what they want, but they need to be ready to deal with the consequences of their actions.

    Yes, they should. And they are. However, a school has absolutely no obligation to provide it.

    Nor do they provide adequate physical activity.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Yeah... get government out of the lunch business. That'd be a great trend to start with.

    The best chocolate milk is in The Netherlands... Chocomel... it's awesome, awesome.Chocomel, de enige èchte.
    I suppose they'd have a fit with what many Dutch eat at breakfast... chocolate.

    I don't have a huge issue with this. I DO have an issue with hypocritical activists who demand stuff like this gets done for "children's health" but are likely the same people that cause more high cardio activities like dodge ball and such that kids would do in gym to get banned and push for gym to be shortened in general.

    Ultimately, its a public school decision and its tax payer money and thus they have to do what's best for the use of that money, and I can understand a move to healthier foods.

    I will say its just yet another example though of my general point, is that the more you allow government to take over something the more they'll then use it to go "Well, its using government funds, so its not bad for us to make you do it our way. Its this kind of thing that in general I don't like government taking over things like health care, or making its way into other segments of life, because once you involved government or government money significantly suddenly your "private" situation becomes a "public" one and your say matters less.

    There is cases when various government entities have tried to ban food type stuff in a general sense, but specific to schools I have no real issue with this.
