    And no, I don't drink white milk either.
    Not even soy?

    I don't know if anyone has pointed this out, but plain milk is a lot cheaper than flavoured milk, so this will save schools, and thus taxpayers, money.

    Nothing better than hot fresh coffee, with some good ole 2% milk, to cool it down.

    Perhaps we should give the kids a bag of raw carrots, 4 ounces of unseasoned (no salt) boiled meat, and frozen water for dessert.

    That would save a lot of money and be healthier too. Perhaps we can drop the meat and frozen water.

    I'd go further and drop the carrots.

    Wow, so much for conservatives wanting to cut spending on non-essentials, or can't kids survive without flavoured milk?

    Remember the days when it was all about providing kids what they wanted to eat in schools?

    Me neither.

    It's not even really about the chocolate milk, it's about the precedence that the schools, to the extent that they are regulated by the government, are pushing the precedences concerning the control over what foods you can feed your kids.

    Yes, there IS a factor of many parents giving bad options for their kids, but that doesn't mean that EVERYONE should lose control over that right.

    I don't support the existence of government schools in the first place, but if we are to have them, then they should provide the healthiest food.

    Why shouldn't they just provide what the kids want?
