Get Flavored Milk Out of Schools!


If you didn't watch Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, then you missed the episode where he fills a school bus with 57 tons of sand to represnet the amount of sugar kids consume from flavored milk in a week. Watch the video here. There is no reason for all this extra sugar when childhood obesity and diabetes rates are what they are. Watch HBO's The Weight of the Nation and you will agree. Schools should get rid of juice while they're at it.

This coming from someone who used to drink 6 cans of coke a day and fast food daily. Yes, people can change, get rid of bad habits and develop new healthy ones. I'm proof! :)
