Chocolate milk has been given a bad rap lately in the school system. Some have banned the drink from their schools insisting that it leads to childhood obesity. Well you can imagine the trouble this stirred up. Kids stopped drinking milk all together, parents complained. They also received letters and petitions from a slew of nutritionists and influential special interest groups. Thankfully reformulated chocolate milk was introduced to the cafeterias and almost everyone was happy once again.
Personally, I can tell you Chocolate milk is the only milk I drink. I can't drink regular milk, can't think about regular milk...can't watch someone else drink it, and Im even having a hard time writing the words. If I didn’t have chocolate milk, I would never get my calcium and vitamin D requirements.
So today, on National Chocolate Milk Day, celebrate by having an ice cold one!
