Is Chocolate Milk, Soda in Drag?

24 Aug
As if I didn’t love Chef Ann Cooper enough, now she has this very cute video to help explain why chocolate milk in schools is bad, a negative, a negatory, a no no.
I am working with my local schools to reform school lunch, as the First Lady requested of us in DC in June. One of our big discussions centers around milk. Our local schools have already removed chocolate milk but many have not. It is just another form of empty calories for our kids who already are eating enough junk. Keep it as a treat once in a while and give them healthier drinks like water and white milk. Ann’s experience along with her passion has given her a big voice for change. I could not have said it better so with out further adieu her she is.

    Just stumbled upon your blog through my typical one-website-links-to-the-next wanderings. Glad to have found you, love the recipes and photos. Even though this post is a few years old, I was especially excited to see this promo for WATER for kids rather than soda and juice (and milk.) Glad to see the topic of reducing the amount of sugary drinks kids consume getting some traction. Too often we think we’re offering our kids healthy alternatives by giving them juice, when in reality they are loaded with sugar. In Santa Clara the First5 agency has created a “Potter the Otter” campaign to encourage kids to take the pledge to drink water for their health, rather than juices or soda. I would encourage you to check it out and spread the word. You can link directly at
