San Francisco Ban Showcases Racist School Policy [VIDEO]
Milk: it does a body good. White milk at least.
But if you want to serve chocolate milk, it could ‘trigger’ a liberal and offend them! After all, this is California.
As if schools don’t have enough on their plates. Things like education, perhaps? However, since schools can’t seem to educate, they continue their interference with children’s diets.
Apparently schools don’t believe parents do a good enough job with their children’s diets? At least not within the “urban” school districts.
For the most part, ‘rich kids’ eat and they eat well. However, the ‘poor kids’ seem to need more government intervention.
Fatherless families, and inattentive families, often too stressed from working multiple jobs, to care about fixing a ‘proper’ meal. Thus these kids often go to school hungry, or so leftists presume. These kids need the government to feed them.
With government comes mandates. Thus, schools have been purging sugary items from lunch menus. They also have begun removing vending machines from campuses across the country. Although these steps have helped in keeping sugary items from kids, there is one lingering item that is now being addressed: chocolate milk.
And the first city to go after this politically-incorrect dairy concoction is, of course, San Francisco.
The San Francisco Unified School District has officially banned chocolate milk, starting in elementary and middle schools this fall and expanding to high schools in the spring.
The district will officially ban chocolate milk, starting in elementary and middle schools this fall and expanding to high schools in the spring.
Officials tested the idea in five schools over the past school year and found that in two, there was no decrease in the number of milk cartons kids put on their trays, and there was only a slight dip in the other three.
“The kids grumbled about it for a couple of days,” said Libby Albert, executive director of the district’s Student Nutrition Services.
But for the most part, they just switched to white milk, she said.
The Chronicle story continues:
One carton of chocolate milk includes about 40 percent of the recommended daily allowance of sugar in a child’s diet, said Marlene Schwartz, director of the University of Connecticut Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity.
In addition, a 2009 study cited by the American Heart Association found that both flavored and plain milk provide a nutritional boost without adverse effects on weight in children and adolescents. Plain milk also has sugar, experts note — about 12 grams of sugar lactose in a school lunch carton.
In San Francisco, however, district officials steadfastly believe less sugar is better, and they are confident that the city’s students — already used to soda-free schools and lunches without cookies or other sweets — will adapt to the chocolate milk ban.
The chocolate milk kerfuffle provides more validation of just how stupid Americans have become.
A study on what the average American really knows about chocolate milk appeared in Food & Wine Magazine. Sadly, but not surprising, the answers Americans gave regarding chocolate milk were appalling.
As KRON-TV reports:
In April, 1,000 adults 18 and over were asked questions about the role milk plays in their daily lives.
The study found 48 percent of respondents weren’t sure where chocolate milk came from.
Seven percent thought chocolate milk only comes from brown cows.
Extrapolated out to the population of the U.S. (approximately 321 million people) that adds up to about 22 million people who think chocolate milk only comes from brown cows — more than the population of North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia combined.
The survey conducted by the Innovation Center of US Dairy, shows that Americans have consistently proven that we are clueless as to where our food truly comes from. For example, past studies have found nearly 20% of people did not know hamburgers are made from beef.
Maybe this commercial from the 1990s can help educate Americans on the origins of chocolate milk:
