Raise Your Hand for Chocolate Milk! #chocolatemilk

I am sure we have all heard bits and pieces about the battle of school lunches. What’s appropriate for our children? What needs to go? While my little ones are not school age yet, I do have two little brothers that are in school so I do think about these things.

When I recently heard that some schools are REMOVING chocolate milk from their lunch programs, I was a bit stunned. I remember in school being SO excited for Chocolate Milk days and couldn’t wait to get my hands on one of those cartons as I went through the lunch line. And yes, I was also one of those kids that would rather skip the milk back then if I couldn’t get chocolate. (I’m stubborn, some things just don’t change!)

Milk plays such a vital role in getting the nutrients we all need. I strongly believe that I’m not the only one out there that skipped the milk when I couldn’t get chocolate milk and that taking Chocolate Milk out of school lunch programs will ultimately be more detrimental to our children than beneficial.

Having that chocolate milk is just a bonus and I know that I am teaming up to support the Got Milk? Campaign, Raise Your Hand for Chocolate Milk! By supporting this awesome campaign, I’ve added my name to the many raising those hands saying keep chocolate milk in our schools!

  1. Most kids would choose chocolate milk over plain ol white milk any day! I know I sure did.

  2. Thanks for the post. i really didn’t know they were trying to take chocolate milk out of schools. I personally only will drink chocolate milk, so I know that it’s important to keep that as a choice because it’s the only way some kids get any milk!
