The New York City Department of Education wants to ban chocolate milk and local dairy farmers are fighting mad.
The New York Post reports that school leaders are pushing a white milk only policy — citing health concerns.
They say chocolate milk contains too much sugar and that’s a no-no.
School districts in San Francisco and Washington, D.C. have already banned flavored milk – so did Los Angeles – but the decision was so unpopular – they reversed the ban.
There is bipartisan opposition in New York– Congressman Anthony Brindisi a Democrat from Utica – says banning chocolate milk would hurt dairy farmers.
The broader issue is New York City’s belief that they should decide what children should or should not eat or drink. That’s a decision that should be left to moms and dads — instead of government-run food police.
