Ontario Schools Actively Promoting Sugar Sweetened Milk As Healthy

Thanks to blog readers Marian and Jonathan for sending in photos of the fliers that came home with their elementary school aged children following the start of the school year.

Jonathan's question was whether or not having the same amount of sugar as juice was something brag worthy for chocolate milk?

At 7 teaspoons of sugar per little carton (4 of them added), I sure don't think so.

And really, is milk such a magical elixir that it warrants the promotion and sale of sugar sweetened versions of it?

Fruits and berries are pretty healthful foods to try to eat every day. If your kids don't want to eat them, will you be offering them up daily pies?
