Minneapolis Schools Ban Chocolate Milk

Citing health concerns, Minneapolis public schools drop the dark-drink option.

(StarTribune.com) -
Chocolate milk might be the most popular choice for school lunch -- not to mention milk bubbles and milk mustaches. But soon it will be no choice at all in Minneapolis public schools.

Starting with summer school, the district is eliminating chocolate milk as a lunch option to reduce the calories and sugar that students consume.

The administrative decision follows elimination of French fries from high school menus last year and a switch from breaded chicken patties to grilled chicken filets this year.
