Chocolate milk bans worry nutritionists, farmers

Local farmers and nutritionists are not keen on the continuing assault of milk consumption. New York City public schools are proposing a ban on chocolate milk sales due to its sugar content. It follows similar efforts in places like San Francisco and Washington D.C.   Rachel Bauer, a registered dietician from the Kewaunee County Public Health Department says there are some health benefits to chocolate milk.

The move also comes at a time when Americans are already drinking less milk with sales dropping $1.1 billion in 2018 according to Dairy Farmers of America. Rich Olson from Olson Family Farms in Sturgeon Bay says the beverage demands are not in their favor.

Bauer adds chocolate milk and other school lunch items are just one piece of the entire day when it comes to making sure your kids are eating healthy.
