Most schools in the United States offer plain milk and flavored milks like chocolate and strawberry as acceptable beverages in our kid’s school lunch. Flavored milk accounts for at least 60% of all the milk purchased by kids in public schools. Further kids are not limited in the number of half pint cartons they can get to go with their lunch. So if a kid wants 2 or 3 cartons of chocolate milk for lunch, the school doesn’t say a word. If a elementary school kid drinks a pint or pint and a half of milk, flavored or not, they generally won’t have room in their stomachs for “good foods”. Don’t get me started on the “good food” that the government mandates as acceptable. Ketchup is not a vegetable, yet the government guidelines say that 2 teaspoons of ketchup make an acceptable vegetable choice for school lunch. But I digress.

I want to make a call to action for everybody that reads this. Contact your kid’s schools and the school board and tell them that you want them to take the flavored milk out of the schools.

And for those who say, “milk is milk.” If so, take you’re child’s glass of milk for dinner and add 2 tablespoons of corn syrup to it. Are you really sure you want your kids drinking that? Is it any better if there’s chocolate added to it? Its crap and you know it. You wouldn’t serve that to your kids at home, so why let the government serve it to your kids?

Today I read that obese people now out number average weight people in the United States. Is it any wonder?

Let’s put a stop to this.
