Chocolate milk in schools: Yummy treat or evil sweet?

Those familiar cartons of chocolate milk could be disappearing from elementary school cafeterias soon, if anti-obesity advocates get their way. Some school districts already prohibit flavored milk, and many others are considering a ban.

I guess I don't have a big problem with my boys drinking chocolate milk at school. I personally think that chocolate milk is the least of the problems in the cafeteria. I'm more upset by the lunches the children are served! I think that school lunches just need a complete overhaul. I'm always shaking my head at what is on the menu.

Coming from a family who does not like milk, there are some kids who won't drink plain milk.
