"Total milk intake dropped by nearly half when chocolate milk removed from school program"
Doesn't anybody think this stuff through BEFORE implementation?...
On the MDnewsDaily website we find this, and the rest of the story:
"Studies show that milk is very important for children's health as it contain many nutrients for growth and development. Sufficient amounts of calcium and vitamin D are required during childhood and adolescence because a significant amount of adult bone mass is accrued during this time. Milk is a good source of these nutrients as well as other important nutrients. Unfortunately without school-based milk programs, children are not likely getting enough."
