The great chocolate milk debate continues.
Flavored milks have been banned in several large school districts across the U.S. The justification used by school officials is that they need to reduce the calories, including those from sugar, consumed through school lunches.
But the dairy industry is not giving up without a fight. Many milk companies across the U.S. are reformulating flavored milk to reduce the calories and sugar content. And Midwest Dairy Association spokesman Kent Lehs (lease) says the industry continues to stress the nutritional value of flavored low-fat or skim milk.
