Thoughts on Banning Chocolate Milk in Schools

The latest feeble attempt to make school lunches healthier is apparently to ban chocolate milk. I find this ridiculous given the fact that far worse foods are still on the menu. I honestly can't figure out why banning chocolate milk is thought to be a good idea if crap like french fries, tater tots, (that mess they call) pizza, and pastries and cookies are left on the menu.

As Jen  Singer says in her op-ed piece in The Wall Street Journal, banning chocolate milk "is like running around blowing out candles while your house is on fire". I agree.

I do think that if chocolate milk is to be offered, it should be low-fat/non-fat and flavored with real sugar rather than High Fructose Corn Syrup.
